Enea Bastianini gave a lesson in the game of cat and mouse to a Pecco Bagnaia who has not yet recovered. Anyone who thought he was going to continue a ruthless comeback in the championship by putting the rest of the Ducati clan in step, moreover, tripped over the carpet when he noticed that his compatriot in the GP21 Gresini had not come to that, at this stage of the season, by chance. Psychologically fragile, he recognizes that he will ruminate on this for a while longer and when we know that the next stage will take place in just two weeks for the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello, it is not necessarily good…

Pecco Bagnaia is not losing his temper, but he also has the honesty to blame only himself… After a splendid pole position and after an excellent start, he paid for wanting to resist Enea Bastianini , who first pushed him to make a mistake by forcing him to shoot wide before he committed irreparable damage by refusing to lose ground too quickly. It’s a hard stop for the 2021 vice-world champion after the victory in Jerez. In the championship the damage is already substantial…

“  I’m pissed off  ,” he blurts out. “  I already know that the more hours pass, the more annoyed I will be because I threw 20 or 25 points in the trash . Enea Bastianini was very strong and I made a mistake. I knew we were on the brink. That’s a shame. If I want to aim for the title, this bullshit is not allowed here,  ” admits the Ducati official .

Pecco Bagnaia: “  it pisses me off just talking about it ”

He even adds: “  this is perhaps the most serious error, even more serious than that of Misano last year. I wouldn’t do the braking of 8 again and it pisses me off just to talk about it. Today I made the mistake when instead I could have brought home important points . I am already three zeros, that is to say two zeros and a point in Indonesia  ”. He concludes: “  the only positive point of this race is the speed we showed ”.

In the championship , he loses two places, finds himself 46 points behind leader Fabio Quartararo and as if to drink the chalice to the dregs, he sees his teammate Jack Miller whom he wants to keep for 2023 and the other GP22 of Johann Zarco pass him in front for 6 point.
