Aragon Motorcycles: Bastianini folds Bagnaia on the last lap

A blazing duel between Ducati riders, as Quartaro flies away after contact with Marc Marquez on the first lap. Very open tournament

Enea Bastianini won the Animoca Brands Grand Prix in Aragon, bypassing Francesco Bagnaia on the last lap and reversing the result of the fencing organized two weeks earlier, in Misano. So there is a bit of bitterness in the mouth of Borgo officer Panigale for not taking full advantage of Fabio Quartararo’s zero, who was removed irresponsibly, by calling Marc Marquez.

The Frenchman fell to the ground during the first lap due to a contact with Marc Marquez. The two collided at the third turn, right after the start in which the Marquis reclaimed several positions. Number 93, who started in 13th, immediately moved up to sixth.

But in the third corner he lost his ass on the exit and hit Quartaro, who was following him closely. The Frenchman was kicked out of the M1 and ended up on the ground, while the Spaniard, with his RC213V damaged in the rear, in turn 8 arrived with fellow brand Takaaki Nakagami, who fell and remained on the asphalt while on. It was reviewed by many of the group’s knights. Marc Marquez retired soon after, with his Honda car clearly damaged.

Thus, while Bagnaia was leading the race, a small train was set up behind him with surprise Brad Bender in front of Jack Miller, Bastianini and Aleix Espargaro. Bastianini, after moving into second, attacked on the ninth lap in the first corner of MotorLand, going far at 12 and passing Bagnaia.

Thus began a duel between the pair of Borgo Panigale, in front of a row of six drivers less than a second apart from each other: Brad Bender, Alex Espargaro, Miller, Jorge Martin and Johan Zarco, while Luca Marini followed. Less than four seconds from the top.

Two rounds before the end, Espargaro lunged at the Bender before the duel between the Italians on the last lap.

Bastianini attacked in the seventh round from the inside of the Bagnaya lane and kept driving up to the square flag, thus putting the stamp on the sharp quarter of the season. On the other hand, for Banaya, another podium after the four victories in the previous four rounds. With the podium completed by Alex Espargaro, Quartararo saw the advantage over Bagnaya cut to 10 points and Ibrajaro to 17. Bastianini’s fourth with 48 points while there are still five races left and 125 points potential.

Finally, race great Luca Merini, who finished seventh and Alex Rins, who went off the track on the first lap to avoid Quartaro, found himself at the back of the group and rebounded to ninth, finishing less than a tenth of Zarco’s.
