Bagnaia nominated for Laureus Comeback of the Year Award

Ducati Lenovo Team’s Francesco Bagnaia has been nominated for the 2023 Laureus World Comeback of the Year Award thanks to his history-making 91-point turnaround that helped him to his first MotoGP™ World Championship. The 26-year-old is up against some fierce competition to try and win the coveted Laureus Award, with five other athletes nominated. Bagnaia is aiming to become only the third MotoGP™ star to pick a Laureus Award after Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez. Italian legend Rossi had the honour of winning three Laureus Awards over his illustrious career: the 2006 Sporting Inspiration Award, the 2011 World Comeback of the Year and the 2022 Sporting Icon Award. Marquez, meanwhile, picked up the 2014 World Breakthrough Award after clinching the premier class title in his rookie season.
