Wins on the day of farewell to the legendary “Doctor” In Valencia the driver from Chivasso made a void behind him


Perhaps few noticed it, given that the limelight was all about Valentino Rossi’s farewell to racing, but on Sunday, in Valencia, the last Grand Prix of the MotoGP season was won by Francesco Bagnaia. Again him: the centaur from Chivasso has won four of the last six races, also signing five pole positions and securing his second place in the world rankings, behind Fabio Quartararo.

In addition to the five successes, this season Pecco has reached the podium five more times, demonstrating continuity and maturity, the qualities that perhaps he lacked until last year to explode. On Sunday he raced, like other riders, wearing a “historic” helmet by Valentino Rossi which, in addition to being the model that inspires every rider (especially Italians), played an important role in the sporting growth of Pecco, who is one of the “graduates” of the academy strongly desired by the nine-time world champion: «I am really very happy with the victory obtained today – confessed Bagnaia at the end of the race -. Winning with Valentino Rossi’s helmet was incredible and it was the best way to celebrate his last race ». But the success in Valencia is a sort of tail title on the season ended, the attention is already projected to 2002: «Today’s success was incredible and now we know we are ready to fight for the drivers title next year – continued Pecco -. During this season we have improved the setup of the bike race after race and at the end of the season the Desmosedici GP has become very strong, as have its riders. We have a very good foundation for next year and I hope we can start as we finished. We have gained a lot of experience and we have grown a lot! The team is incredible and the serenity inside the garage is beautiful! I am really happy and I thank Ducati for all this ». And now, head straight towards March 6, 2022: the world championship starts again in Quatar, with Pecco Bagnaia and his Ducati Desmosedici ready to make us dream. Because a rider who, with small steps or big leaps, has always known how to improve, once world champion, can only have one goal. –
