Pecco Bagnaia has regained his smile

After his third consecutive Sprint Race retirement, Pecco Bagnaia is back "racing animal" and he did it by convincingly winning the Catalan Grand Prix, a race he had never won even in Moto2 or Moto3. A curse broken then, at the end of a race that the world champion told in the interview at the foot of the podium.

"I say it honestly, I was angry about what happened yesterday – admitted Bagnaia -. The potential to win was already there, but in the end è it went like this. Today instead è it was a bit difficult at the beginning, they were all going very fast. I preferred not to overdo it and manage the pace, soì I made it to the finish".

"I also worked hard becauseé I wanted to erase the statistic of zero wins here. Yesterday, I must admit, we threw away some points, but today I gave myself a goal and I achieved it. And then doing well on this track was also important because of what happened last year" he added, referring to the bad crash in September 2023.

Bagnaia, Moto2 world champion in 2018 and a MotoGp rainbow in 2022 and 2023, è started this year with two different rhythms at the Sprint and Gp level: on Saturdays he did no better than fourth place in Qatar and Portugal, finishing with three consecutive retirements in Jerez, Le Mans and Montmeló on Sundays, on the other hand, he took three wins (Qatar, Jerez, Montmeló), third place in Le Mans and fifth in Texas, retiring instead in Portimao.
