Bastianini removes doubts

Team orders from Ducati could play a decisive role in favoring Pecco Bagnaia in the fight for the 2022 MotoGP title with Quartararo and Aleix Espargaro: in Aragon, his future teammate Enea Bastianini defeated him by picking up five precious points. . On the eve of the Japanese Grand Prix, both Piedmont and born-again Rimini spoke about the current instructions that factory Borgo Panigale had given to its MotorLand riders and for the following races of the season.

On the eve of the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi la Fight for the 2022 MotoGP Championship It becomes more and more open. after, after Fall due to contact with Marquis From Ranking leader Fabio Quartaro In Aragon, the Italian driver Biko Bajnaya reached only 10 points From the top with the return of Spaniard Alex Espargaro by only 7 lengths. a negligible separation If you take into account the fact that there are still five races to go until the end of the season and a maximum of 125 points still available to grab.

In what promises to be a very difficult challenge for me There are many factors that can decide to customize the drivers title. Among everyone there One can prefer not a little Pecco Bagnaia: Reality To be able to count on the help of seven other Ducati passengers on the starting grid. A huge advantage given that Espargaro can only count on the support of his Aprilia teammate Maverick Vinales and Quartararo instead, despite the fact that there are four Yamahas to move onto the track in every GP, who appear in complete isolation given the apparent difficulties in staying in positions Leading for teammate Franco Morbidelli and two RNF satellite team standard holders Cal Crutchlow (who replaced Andrea Dovizioso who retired from competitions after Misano) and Darren Bender.

To play a critical role, therefore, it can be team orders Aimed to favor the 25-year-old from Turin that manufacturer Borgo Panigale has given to the large group of riders racing on the Desmosedici (other official team standard-bearer Jack Miller, but also the Pramac Satellite Team drivers and Gresini Racing and VR46 customer teams). This is an inevitable topic that, given the high stakes at stake, is a topic of great debate within the MotoGP circuit, especially after what has happened. At the end of the Misano race When Enea Bastianini (Who will join the official team next year) was Taken publicly by the CEO of Ducati Corse for having risked a lot in the fencing to win with Pecco Bagnaia in the last laps of the race that followed Controversy sparked by Yamaha.

The duel that was then repeated in the next stage GP in Aragon Which, unexpectedly, ended with Overtake Bastianini’s victory over the Piedmontese who favored Fabio Quartararo (who was seen nibbling 5 points less than Bagnaia) Thus questioning the fact that Ducati is resorting to team orders to help its first man win the riders’ title (which has been missing from the Borgo Panigale house since 2007).

To clarify what happened at the Alcaniz MotorLand race, the parties involved thought then. I did it first Biko Bagnaya Who reiterated his desire to win without anyone’s help: “I don’t think I need help to stay ahead, I prefer to win on the track and not because someone lets me pass – Indeed, Al-Torrini said on the eve of the Japanese Grand Prix –. However, it is a decision that is not up to me. I explained what my position is, then If they decide otherwise, it’s not up to me. I will try to be strong, win and stay ahead. This is my goal, as it was in Misano and AragonThen the Moto2 2018 Champion commented.

Then he did it too Enea Bastianini who revealed the truth about what happened during the Aragon GP And what instructions does the house of Borgo Panigale at present receive: “So far I have not received any orders from the Ducati team. I always have to give 100% in the race in this last part of the world championship. Then we’ll see if I get any requests from the team in the futureBut that doesn’t particularly bother me at the moment“Indeed the standard-bearer of the Gresini team who, despite still being at least sporting a title fight, nevertheless said Leaving the door open for potential help for Pecco Bagnaia during this final five grand prix of the season in which the World Cup will be decided.
