The Malaysian Grand Prix ends with the seventh success of the 2022 MotoGP season for our Suomy rider Pecco Bagnaia, who is the author of a spectacular race.
Ninth at the start, Pecco decides to attack immediately and from the first corner he conquers the second place behind Jorge Martin, who leaves the lead of the race to our Suomy rider after a crash on the seventh lap.
After a fierce battle with Enea Bastianini for the first place, our Suomy rider Pecco Bagnaia gets on the top step of the podium.
However, the victory at the Sepang circuit is not enough for Pecco to win the world title, which will then be decided at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, where Pecco will compete with 23 points ahead of Fabio Quartararo.
“I think today’s start was probably one of the best of my career. After moving up to second, I tried to manage the race as best I could. In the beginning, Jorge Martin was pushing really hard, but I felt that the rear tyre did not allow me to keep the same pace as him. I stayed calm and waited. The most difficult moment was when Enea Bastianini passed me. When I saw that I was faster, I got back in front and did everything I could to get the win. Today was important since Quartararo was third. There are only two points left to win the title, and in Valencia, we have a really good chance since Fabio will have to win the race, while I can afford even only 14th place, I want to approach the race as if it were a normal race weekend and do my best as always.”
