  • MotoGP Italian GP: Francesco Bagnaia Claims Third Consecutive Victory at Mugello

  • Gran Premio d’Italia Brembo saw the Sprint Race winner Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) took back-to-back wins at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello Scarperia e San Piero in Italy, following Catalan GP.

    Also, he took the third consecutive victory at Mugello, following 2022 and 2023.
    He made a brilliant start from 5th on the grid, took the lead on the first lap, then dominated the race, leading all 23 laps.
    His team-mate Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo) passed Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati), who was running in 2nd, at the final corner on the final lap and finally finished in 2nd. This marks his third podium of the season, following Portuguese GP and Americas GP.
    Poleman Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) was overtaken by Enea Bastianini on the last lap and finished in 3rd.
    Marc Marquez (Gresini Ducati) battled with Enea Bastianini for 3rd place, but finally finished in 4th.
    Rookie Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3) was 5th.
    Franco Morbidelli (Pramac Ducati) was 6th ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio (VR46 Ducati) and marked the best result of the season.
    Maverick Vinales was 8th despite starting from the front row. Alex Marquez (Gresini Ducat) and Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM) rounded out the top 10.
  • Francesco Bagnaia said, “Incredible. It wasn't easy, starting from P5, but I had this strategy to go in from the outside and it worked perfectly. Then I started to push. It was difficult to manage the rear tyre well because I was pushing the front a lot. But finally, a win today after a weekend like this is fantastic. I love the crowd, it's incredible. And I'm also very happy for Enea [Bastianini] who did a really good job.”
  • He continued, “The day started well because I received a message from a legend (American rock band Kiss' Gene Simmons). And he said today, probably you will win. It was incredible. I’m very happy, satisfied, and very proud. This weekend was fantastic. I started well in the race and yesterday was fantastic. Today, it was so important to be leading in the first lap to put my pace. The strategy in the first two corners went perfectly. More than this was impossible. Honestly, when you are there, as an Italian and looking in front at the podium, seeing this sea of people with our cap, our numbers, as an Italian it is unbelievable. It makes it more special and more magical. I love Mugello for it. I have loved it since I was very young and I still love it. In 2022 we started to see a lot of people more, 2023 was good, but this year was back like the old times. It is not a matter of risk [overtake on Martin], more a matter of being in a good position at the correct moment. I decided to go on the outside because I remember last year that Miller overtook me and I just remained on the outside to be on the inside of corner two. I tried to do the same but Maverick braked very hard and my strategy was almost ruined. But when I saw that he was going wide I just tried to close his line and it was the best decision. After that, I saw that Jorge didn’t exit corner one strongly, so I just tried to take this as an advantage and overtake him in corner two.”
