Bagnaia: "I hope the last race has served as a lesson for me"

The world runner-up signed his fourth pole of the season this Saturday, but the detail to highlight, and it is not exactly a minor one, is that he did it in Assen , one of the tracks where it cost him the most to do well last year. The Ducati rider has left his mark pulverizing the Netherlands time, with his unbeatable record this Saturday 1:31.504,

After adding three zeros in the last four races, the Piedmontese is cautious at the moment, although he did not hide his satisfaction from the Sky Sports microphones after achieving his fourth pole of the season: “I want to take the times a little more calmly this time, although pole position here is worth a lot, because it’s a track that I really like, but it’s not the best for our bike”.

The other positive aspect of the day was that this morning things had not gone so well, as it was difficult for him to find the feeling with his Desmosedici GP, especially in the fastest part of the track. But both he and his team have worked hard, and in FP4 they have made some changes that have paid off.

“I am very happy that I managed to turn things around in FP4, because this morning I had quite a few problems in FP3. We had some things to do, but in FP4, when I went out on track, I felt good immediately. So, we were able to take another step in that direction as well, so we’re a little bit more prepared for tomorrow.”

Later on, Bagnaia went into a little more detail about the changes he made to his prototype: “My problem was the movement and the lack of sensation when speeding up. We just tried to lower the bike and I liked it, because obviously now it moves less , it’s more stable, and as a result, I can do everything better.”

“That was something that, in the second stint of FP4, especially with the used tyre, would surely give me a bit of an advantage. But also in Q2, because the fact of being able to push a little more in the fast part has allowed me to give one more step compared to this morning’s time attack.”

In terms of race pace, Fabio Quartararo and Pecco Bagnaia, who will start together from the front row, appear to be very close.

“It will be a tough race, as always. First of all, the first thing I have to do is finish it. I think and I hope that the last race has served as a lesson for me and I want to start taking a step forward tomorrow”, concluded #63 , which today gave Ducati the 63rd pole in its history.
