Impossible to stand in front of him. When Pecco puts in the right day he is capable of feats like the one on Saturday at Le Mans, where he signed a historic pole position: the first for Ducati with a lot of records. He got in front of his teammate and opened the way for him to the front row and a second place that is worth gold, because the most feared opponent, Fabio Quartararo, was placed one row behind, in fourth place. A “one two” that can hurt and that leaves its mark. Above all confirmation the general growth of the Ducatiswho placed five drivers in the first ten places on the grid: in fifth place Enea Bastianini stopped in the morning by the engine failure, the home driver Johann in ninth Zarco (the Frenchman signs the sixth time, but he comes downgraded by three positions for hindering another driver in Q2), Martin eighth (the Spaniard, author of the ninth time, gains a position due to the penalty of Zarco).

Ducati, Dall’Igna: “We have amazing riders”

The head of the Bolognese racing department, Gigi Dall’Igna, was most satisfied: “They are amazing guys, Pecco threw Jack, incredible“. The interested party confirms, happy to have pulled Miller in the wake:” I’m happy for him, a lot of weight has been removed (the reference is to the rumors about the delicate renewal of the Australian’s contract, competing with Martin and Bastianini, ed.) “Miller sat behind him knowing he had less:” I knew that Pecco had a better pace – he said Jack – and him did a spectacular ride, incredible how he did turn six, impressive seen from behind. “Bagnaia debunked another cornerstone, that of a track favorable to the more agile four-cylinder in-line:” This bike is strong in fast laps – he said -. I was a bit worried after Free 4, because we changed something, but in qualifying we took the opposite direction and everything worked out perfectly“.

Aleix Espargaró snatches third place from Quartararo

Last year Miller had won, this year it could be up to him who occupies the fifth place in the standings behind by 33 points, but he presents himself as the real opponent of Quartararo. Sunday’s race already has the flavor of a world championship challenge. The Frenchman does not hide it, who gave his all and in the morning he tried to pull Marc Marquez with him too, perhaps with the hope of having one more ally to stop the Ducati squadron. But the Spaniard finished far away, on the tenth box of the grid, confirming the difficulties of the moment. “El Diablo” will also have to contend with Aleix Espargar√≥, which blew him third place a little by surprise. “This track is not suitable for my riding style – confirmed the Spaniard -. But the technicians worked well and gave me a more stable bike when starting from low speed”. His Achilles heel, waiting for smoother and faster tracks. “Congratulations to Aleix – said Massimo Rivola, head of the Noale racing department -. Le Mans is not one of his favorite tracks and it is not even for our bike. I can’t wait to get to the fast circuits where he can go even better. “The Suzuki men are also satisfied: sixth place at the start of Mir in front of teammate Rinstwo riders destined to take a different path in 2023, following the announcement by the Japanese manufacturer that he intends to leave MotoGP at the end of the current season.
