Pecco’s pole position is not enough

After his four consecutive successes, Pecco Bagnaia shows his muscles in Aragon and conquers a pole position that had been missing since Assen. The Ducati’s Piedmontese, of course, knows that qualifying does not bring points and that to make up further ground in the standings against Fabio Quartararo it will be crucial not only to win, but also to put as many riders between himself and the French Yamaha rider.

“I tried to do the perfect lap and I succeeded,” he told ‘Sky Sports’ on the sidelines of qualifying. “I was able to do what I wanted, in particular, in the last two sectors. I tried to strategize a bit by trying to get more bikes to follow me, so that there could be several riders in front of Quartararo on the grid. Of course, it could have turned out to be a double-edged sword, but it went well. I am confident for tomorrow’s race, we have a good package and we have to make the most of it.”
