Bagnaia: Quartararo’s main rival in the title race?

After winning the Monster Energy British Grand Prix, making it two wins from two, is Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) now Fabio Quartararo’s (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) main World Championship rival? Pecco now boasts more race wins than anyone in 2022 (four) but since his victory in Jerez, he’s either won the race or crashed. However, Sunday’s British GP didn’t go to plan for either Quartararo or Espargaro. But Quartararo’s lead over Pecco was slashed from 66 to 49 points. “In the end I think we need to look at Pecco because he’s the one that’s really making the difference right now,” commented Quartararo. Quartararo is right to be worried about Pecco’s form and the upcoming races, because Pecco won two of them last year in Misano and Aragon. He also won in Valencia, a race in which Ducati locked out the podium.
