Ducati racer, Francesco Bagnaia , is relieved to be able to win the San Marino MotoGP race at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit, Sunday (9/19/2021) night WIB. According to Bagnaia, the race was not easy because he was constantly under pressure from Fabio Quartararo.
Francesco Bagnaia started the race from pole position at the MotoGP San Marino 2021. As soon as he started, Bagnaia immediately shot to the leading position.
Throughout the race, Bagnaia did not get any significant terror from other racers. However, Bagnaia was worried about Fabio Quartararo, who threatened to start the last 10 laps because he was right behind him.
Bagnaia finally managed to finish fastest in the 2021 San Marino MotoGP race with a time of 41 minutes 48.305 seconds. The Italian racer was only 0.364 seconds ahead of Fabio Quartararo.
“I realized from the start to finish in the top three requires a bit of a struggle. However, I tried to put pressure on the first 1-3 laps to widen the gap,” said Bagnaia after the race.
“Then in the last 10 laps I saw Fabio Quartararo trailing and it was very difficult. However, I tried to keep putting pressure on the last laps because we were very close,” said Bagnaia.
This result is a back-to-back champion achieved by Francesco Bagnaia in the 2021 MotoGP. Previously, Bagnaia also managed to become a champion in the Aragnon MotoGP race.
