Bagnaia ends Ducati raid in 2022

Also read:

Two of the world titles had already been awarded before the final in Valencia, among the manufacturers and the teams, but the decision still had to be made among the pilots to close the duel between Pecco Bagnaia and Fabio Quartararo. With a big lead at the start of this last round of the season, the Italian finally did not waver by securing under the checkered flag a ninth place ample enough to guarantee him a first world title in MotoGP. Fourth, Fabio Quartararo reduced the final gap but therefore surrendered his crown with a definitive delay of 17 points on his successor.

Another challenge at the Valencia round, third place went to Enea Bastianini, who nevertheless had a discreet race, but was helped in his mission by the technical problems encountered by Aleix Espargaró and by the fall of Jack Miller. Brad Binder takes sixth in the championship ahead of today’s winner, Alex Rins. After his fall this Sunday, Johann Zarco will end his 2022 year in eighth place in the championship, with 13th place to look for the ghost of Marc Márquez who was absent for so long in the middle of the campaign.

Among the teams as among the manufacturers, Ducati can therefore celebrate its raid with the coronation of its pilot, the first for the brand since 2007 with this time an even stronger symbol, since the tandem is 100% Italian. Bastianini was already assured of Best Independent status, as was the Pramac team, and Marco Bezzecchi to finish Best Rookie. Every Ducati team has thus achieved at least one of the honors this year.
