There are still three rounds to go to the end of the 2021 MotoGP season. A year that seems destined to end, for the fourth time in the last 5 seasons, with a Ducati rider second in the world championship standings. From 2017 to 2019 it was Andrea Dovizioso who occupied the place of honor, behind the unrivaled Marc Marquez. This time it is Pecco Bagnaia the rider destined to bring the red from Borgo Panigale close – but unfortunately still too far – from that world dream that has been missing since 2007. He is thinking about stopping the Piedmontese from Chivasso Fabio Quartararo, one step away from the first world title of his career riding the Yamaha M1.
However, the balance of the season for the Italian team seems to be positive. To trace it, even with all the precautions of a season still in progress, DG Corse took care of it Gigi Dall’Igna, intervened in the last episode of MotoG-Podcast, made by Gazzetta dello Sport. Interviewed by Paolo Ianieri and Zoran Filicic, Dall’Igna expressed only positive words for ‘his’ centaurs. “They know how to motivate the team – explained the Venetian engineer – because the team game that Jack made [Miller] to Austin to spontaneously help Pecco makes you realize what a great person he is. Jorge Martin, on the other hand, is the one who surprised me the most for how he immediately adapted to MotoGP. Enea Bastianini needs to improve the start and the first two laps, but otherwise he is proving to run like the best“.
On the title that could already be awarded at Misano, Dall’Igna showed himself to be sporty: “He is deserving the championship “, the Ducati manager’s thoughts on Quartararo. However, for many fans, 2021 is especially the last year in the MotoGP World Championship Valentino Rossi. A season that, unfortunately for the champion from Tavullia, is passing without acute and among many disappointments. An epilogue that displeases a lover of two wheels like Dall’Igna: “I’m sorry to see Valentino so in trouble in his last season. I would have liked to see him finish his career with a smile “he concluded.
