An extraordinary Sunday for Pecco Bagnaia, who brings home the second win of the season and climbs for the first time on the podium of the Mugello circuit.
After a start that forces him to lose a few positions, Pecco immediately moves up to second and on the fourth lap he takes the lead passing the Italian Marco Bezzecchi.
An unrivaled race for our Suomy rider, who, with ten laps from the end, is now competing alone and manages to keep the gap from the rest of the group until the finish line.
Thanks to this win Pecco is back in the fight for the 2022 MotoGP World Championship and expresses all the happiness for having conquered the first place in the home race.
“For us Italians, this is a very important race, so this is definitely a special victory. Mugello is a challenging track, but we worked all weekend perfectly to achieve this result, and we did it. Yesterday in FP3, I destroyed the bike, but my team worked so hard to allow me to use it today in the race, so I have to thank them! After the start, I found myself bottled up, and some riders passed me. I knew that by staying calm, I could make a comeback. I’m happy, and I think we really deserved this win.”

With the win of the Italian GP Pecco Bagnaia proudly brings to the podium the Suomy SR-GP Mugello special helmet, with which the Italian rider wanted to pay homage to three Italian excellences: Ducati, the Frecce Tricolori and the Italian Air Force.
The success of the Suomy riders at the Mugello circuit is not limited to the top class. In fact, Matteo Ferrari conquers the first place in Race 2 of the MotoE Class.
Ferrari is the author of an impeccable and exciting race, closed at the finish line with only a few thousandths of a second behind his pursuer Dominique Aegerter.
Here comes the first win of the 2022 season for Ferrari, a special win on the home track with which the Italian rider reaches the third place in the general standings.
“I’m so happy: my eleventh podium, an incredible one. To be winning at Mugello, at home, was simply magic. Yesterday I watched carefully race one and saw that Aegerter was really good under braking, so we worked on it this morning and it worked. I started well and was already third at turn one, then I fought until the end. These two podiums at Mugello gave us third place in the standings, and we managed to narrow the gap down to the top a little bit. We will try to repeat this type of result at Assen.”
