Pecco Bagnaia, impressed with F1: "There is more exclusivity"

Pecco Bagnaia lands in Alcañiz in a state of grace. The Italian has been victorious in the last four Grand Prix races, thanks to which he has once again entered the fight for the title (for the second consecutive year).

The Ducati rider left for the summer break far from Fabio Quartararo and Aleix Espargaró, but now he is the second best ranked in the general standings , just thirty points behind the reigning world champion.

“I’m in a fantastic moment. I feel great with the bike and with the work we’re doing in the box,” said Bagnaia at a press conference. “Apart from Assen and Silverstone, it’s hard for us to start the weekend well, but we ended up being able to be quick for the race. We’re working very well.”

As he has done on other occasions, #63 pointed to perseverance as his great ally in the change in trend that he has presented since the July holidays. “I think we have done a great job with my coach and my team during the summer break, and we have found the key that is allowing us to be constant”.

As if that were not enough, this weekend’s appointment will take place at Motorland, a circuit to which Fabio has not fully adapted , but in which Pecco won, in 2021, his first MotoGP race. However, Bagnaia shies away from being listed as a favourite.

“In Austria they said I had to win because I was riding a Ducati, in Misano because it was my home Grand Prix… That doesn’t mean much to me either. I’ll try to continue working well and trying to be at the front. This year there are many riders who can opt for victory, so the key will be to be constant”, he stressed once again.

What is undeniable is that Alcañiz has kept, since last year, a special place in Pecco’s heart. “It was a difficult moment, because I had the rhythm to win races, but in the end, one way or another, something always ended up happening that prevented me from getting the victory. Last year’s race with Marc helped me understand that I was capable of win. I thought that victory didn’t change anything, but if I look back and look at the results I see that it was something that gave me motivation. It helped me to be more competitive”.

The one from Turin took advantage of the proximity of Monza to visit the Formula 1 paddock last weekend . Pecco was impressed with the “exclusivity” of the Great Circus. “I saw Lewis Hamilton walking through the paddock without any problem, and that here is impossible.”

“If you do it [in MotoGP] a lot of people surround you to take a photo, and it’s a fantastic thing, because we are closer to the fans, but there is more exclusivity there… it’s a different story,” he clarified.

“What I really liked is seeing the work they do in the box, which is completely different from what we do. I was also impressed by how they talk to the team on the radio, and it’s very interesting.”
