Pecco Bagnaia it is one step away from the dream. The Ducati rider, after winning in Malaysia, stretched over his rival for the riders title Fabio Quartararo, reigning world champion. The Turin-born now has a 23-point advantage and, with only one race left (in Valencia), he is practically very close to the finish line: a 14th place or a non-victory of the French in Spain will be enough to triumph.
MotoGP, Bagnaia’s crazy comeback
A crazy comeback that of Bagnaia, who recovered 91 points in Quartararo in a few races. Certainly the Frenchman put in some of him with a few too many crashes, but the Ducati rider had the great merit of always believing in it, winning more gp than all opponents (7). And now, in Valencia, Bagnaia will be able to count on one more ally.
Valencia, Rossi present to cheer on Bagnaia
Yes, why his idol Valentino Rossi will be present at the last GP of the season to support him. Having concluded his racing commitments, the Doctor decided to be close to the student on what could be the most important day in the career of the Turin-born, former world champion in Moto2 but never in MotoGP.
Bagnaia’s recent words on Rossi
Just a few days ago, Bagnaia spoke of Rossi as follows: “I would have liked to race in the late nineties because social networks did not exist and therefore everything would have been easier. And fighting Valentino Rossi at his highest level, I probably would have taken thembut I would have liked to fight with him ”.
The Bagnaia fan has in fact a certainty: “Vale was so much the greatest of all that he is off the scale, no one will ever be like him. In Italy a MotoGP title has not been won since 2009…. ”. Just Bagnaia, however, could dispel this taboo, in that Valencia which in 2015 prevented Rossi from winning his 10th title against the Lorenzo-Marquez alliance.
