Ducati centaur Pecco Bagnaia is already focused on Sunday’s race

Ducati centaur Pecco Bagnaia celebrates but not too much the pole he took in the official practice of the MotoGp Dutch Grand Prix: “By now we have shown that we know how to be fast on Saturday, but we are interested in being fast on Sunday.”

“We worked well and in FP4 we went well immediately,” explained the Piedmontese rider, on his fourth pole of the season. We adapted well to a track that is complicated for us, we are really happy. And now I hope that the lesson of last time has served me well.”

Bagnaia is aiming for immediate redemption after his mistake in Germany, when after starting from pole he fell alone, thwarting the weekend’s work. Behind him will start the usual Fabio Quartararo, then Jorge Martin. In trouble is Enea Bastianini, 16th.
