Bagnaia between today and tomorrow: "I believe in the comeback. My future partner doesn't create nervousness in Ducati"

Pecco canceled the zero of Montmelò: “I have 66 points from Quartararo with 11 races, we can do it. Miller? I’m sorry go away, whoever takes your place will have to understand our way of working, it’s the most important thing”

– SACHSENRING (germany)

Forget Barcelona? Done. “Filming the next day in tests helped me to cancel what happened, I enjoyed it and forced myself to only look ahead.” Francesco Bagnaia in words has already canceled that disastrous zero (especially for the classification) of Montmelò, pulled down at the first corner by Takaaki Nakagami, who hit the rear tire of his Ducati with his helmet, just by a miracle nothing was done. Arriving on the circuit today at the Sachsenring, the Japanese of Lucio Cecchinello went to apologize to Pecco and Alex Rins, who is the one who had the worst, breaking his left wrist, and today he will try to get back on his Suzuki. For Bagnaia, however, it will only be a question of trying to restart, trying to stop the dangerous escape of Fabio Quartararo, now 66 points away. “There are many, but if the ambition last year was to recover 70 points in 5 races, now they are 66 in 11. Fabio is clearly the strongest, he drives the Yamaha perfectly, but we can assert ourselves. We try”.

we work together

A complicated mission, of course, but Bagnaia has shown that after having found the feeling with his Ducati, the speed is there, and so is the bike. “Here last year I rode well (climbed from 16th place to 5th; ed), so I am convinced that we can go fast, on paper the most difficult track is that of Assen, but let’s see, I hope the work done in these weeks you pay. And then by now there are no more tracks where Ducati is struggling, and in this I and Jack (Miller; ed) did well, in helping to change the mentality of the team, with a bike that now accelerates and turns well ”. So much so that, in anticipation of the Australian’s farewell, who will be with KTM in the next two years, Pecco sends a message to his new teammate, Jorge Martin or Enea Bastianini: “I’m sorry that Miller is leaving, but I hope that my new partner understands the way to work and does not start to create nervousness in the team. This is the most important thing”.

thanks ducati

After all, he and Miller have always worked well as a couple, with Bagnaia wanting a reconfirmation of Jack. “I am very happy with the future prospects – says the Australian -, as well as with a change of scenery, even if these 5 years with Ducati have been exceptional, we have had many good races. I am very grateful for what I have been taught here, I would not trade it for anything. I will miss Pecco and Ducati, but I feel I still have a lot of things to do before I leave. Wearing red has long been a desire, it will be exciting the day I greet everyone “.

New challenge

At the same time, that in KTM will be a comeback, given that Miller touched the Moto3 title with the Austrian manufacturer before moving directly to MotoGP. “I know the structure and I know Francesco well (Guidotti, who was his head in Pramac; ed). But I have a good relationship with everyone, I don’t think I have any unfinished business with anyone. I’m 27, I think I still have a lot to give, and that KTM seemed like the best path for me ”.
