Bezzecchi assures that he did not overtake Bagnaia in Australia because he could not

Phillip Island.- With the fourth position in which he crossed the finish line this Sunday at Phillip Island, the VR46 Pilots Academy rider became the best rookie of this 2022 , a feat that he had practically in his bag for a long time .

Marco Bezzecchi is one of the surprises of the course, for his speed and also for his consistency. The second place he achieved in Assen continues to be his best result in the heavy bike category, even though, at Ducati, they consider that victory is a real goal for him if he continues in this growth dynamic.

In Australia, everyone who watched the race got the feeling that the Rimini lad had a chance of overtaking Pecco Bagnaia. If we take into account the situation of the Turinese, who is getting closer to the title, the fact that he did not even attempt a maneuver to overtake him could lead us to think of a strategy by the Borgo Panigale manufacturer. Bezzecchi, however, denied it , and simply stressed that if he didn’t finish on the podium it was simply because he couldn’t.

“I didn’t overtake Pecco because he was going faster than me, and I didn’t want to end up on the dirt or throw him. On the straights, his bike runs a little faster than mine,” summed up the Italian, who, after this result, rides the 14th in the general table. “It was a fantastic race and I didn’t want to risk ruining it. I stayed behind him, as close as I could, but in the last three laps the tires were shredded. I would have liked to get on the podium, but those who got on it they were going too fast,” added Bezzecchi.

After starting ninth on the grid, the race of the #72 went from less to more , to the point of getting into trouble with several of the members of the leading group.

“I can’t complain. I didn’t expect that I could do such a good race. Since Saturday I knew that I could go fast,” the VR46 rider clinched.
