MotoGP | Bagnaia closes the Jerez test with the best time

Pecco Bagnaia finished last season in top form, achieving four wins and five pole positions in the last six races of 2021 to become runner-up in the MotoGP world, just 26 points behind champion Fabio Quartararo .

Ducati took the constructors, teams, best private team (Pramac), best independent rider ( Johann Zarco) and rookie of the year (Jorge Martín) titles, but the jackpot slipped away. In 2022, the Borgo Panigale brand will up the ante and increase its presence on the grid to eight bikes.

Five of them will be the new GP22 , which has begun to be seen in these two days in Jerez . Ducati has brought several novelties, among which a new engine, fairing and exhaust stand out. First impressions have been positive, as evidenced by the best time set by Bagnaia.

The Italian was the only driver to break the 1:37 ( 1:36.872 ) barrier on both days, setting the time at 12th of the 42 laps he ran on Friday. Bagnaia put more than four tenths on the second classified, Quartararo, despite the fact that the Frenchman did lower his time in the afternoon.

Alex Rins also made a leap in his last attempts and climbed to third place, although he was already over half a second behind the Ducati. Pol Espargaró, who finally got on the 2022 bike this Friday, finished as the best Honda , fourth, while Maverick Viñales with the Aprilia completed a top 5 with five different brands.

Joan Mir finished the test with the sixth fastest time and happy with the news that Suzuki has brought to the Cadiz track. After being second in the morning, Takaaki Nakagami kept running after midday, but did not improve his lap and finished seventh.

Enea Bastianini, already with the GP21 that she will wear in 2022, closed two outstanding days with eighth place, ahead of Jack Miller (ninth) and Alex Márquez, who completed the top 10. Brad Binder was the first classified KTM , 11th.

Fabio Di Giannantonio finished as the best of the rookies (19th), 1.6s behind the benchmark, one place ahead of Raúl Fernández, who stopped early due to a technical problem. Marco Bezzecchi and Darryn Binder, who suffered a crash, took the last two places.
