The ‘devil’ touches the sky in MotoGP

Fabio ‘El Diablo’ Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1) achieved glory in the Emilia Romagna MotoGP Grand Prix by becoming the first French world champion in history in the premier class, in a setting in which the Spanish Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda RC 213 V) won and showed that he is very close to being his usual self again.

In addition, at the Marco Simoncelli circuit in Misano Adriatico, Remy Gardner (Kalex) took an almost decisive step towards the Moto2 world title, despite being seventh, seeing how his teammate, the Spanish Raúl Fernández and the Italian Marco Bezzecchi (Kalex), the only ones who mathematically had options for the title, were on the ground.

And in Moto3, the Spanish Pedro Acosta (KTM) had to settle for the third position and to see how the Italian Dennis Foggia (Honda) continued to close the gap in the championship by winning again, but the 21 points that he still has ahead of him they could allow to achieve the title mathematically in the following appointment of Portimao (Portugal).

The Italian Francesco ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia (Ducati) was the only one who could embitter his goal, and the truth is that he was on his way to achieve it if it were not because after the slipstream of his motorcycle a Marc Márquez was placed that proved to be much closer to his best form, because on a circuit that is not very to his liking, although he has already won four times in MotoGP and two more in other categories.

Bagnaia dominated the training sessions and it seemed that he was going to do the same in the race, but perhaps the pressure that the Repsol rider subjected him to or the situation he was going through, led him to make a mistake that ended him for the soils and with it Márquez took the victory and Quartararo with the title of world champion. Goal accomplished for both.

Another positive mention is deserved by Maverick Viñales, who after his return to competition after the death of his cousin Dean Berta Viñales, managed to finish eighth.
