  • MotoGP Dutch GP: Francesco Bagnaia Dominates for Assen with Stunning Win

  • Motul TT Assen took place watched Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) claimed his fifth victory of 2024 at the TT Circuit Assen in Assen on June 30, 2024.

    Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) withdrew the race due to injury sustained in crashes in the Sprint Race yesterday.
    Francesco Bagnaia took back-to-back wins following Italian GP, and also this marks the third Dutch GP victory in a row, following 2022 and 2023.
    He dominated and led from start to finish in the 26-lap race as with the Sprint Race yesterday.
    Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) recovered from a three-place grid penalty and finished in 2nd place behind Francesco Bagnaia by 3.676s.
    Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo) completed the podium, moving up from the 10th.
    Marc Marquez (Gresini Ducati) finished in 4th place, but after the race, he was given a 16-second post-race penalty for failing to meet the minimum front tyre pressure, ultimately placing him in 10th.
    Maverick Vinales (Aprilia Racing) finished in 5th ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio (VR46 Ducati).
    But he received a one-place penalty for exceeding track limits on the final lap, dropping him behind Fabio Di Giannantonio.
    Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM) was 6th after Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3) crashed out of that position on the last lap.
    Alex Marquez (Gresini Ducati), Raul Fernandez (Trackhouse Aprilia), and Franco Morbidelli (Pramac Ducati) rounded out the top 10.

    Francesco Bagnaia said, “In terms of result this is the best one I think in MotoGP. I was leading all the sessions which is something that doesn't happen all the time. To win in this way was incredible. I did the same thing in Moto2 in 2018. What I want to say is that I'm very proud of my team and we did an incredible job all weekend. The bike was fantastic and we just adapted little things to be better in the fast corners because at the start of the weekend I was struggling compared to other riders. As soon as we adjusted everything was perfect. Winning today was incredible. It is a really great moment. Also, in the last part of 2021, the middle of 2022 and last season, many times it happened to me where I felt fantastic with the bike. At the moment I know perfectly our potential and if we work well we can fight for a win every time. We can have some race weekends like this. It gives me a lot of motivation. When you start a race and everyone knows you have to win because of your pace, what you did in the weekend, a second position is already a loss. In terms of pressure it is more. But I didn't care and I just enjoyed everything. I love this track and I love going fast. For me it wasn't a problem, I just really enjoyed it.”
