Bagnaia opens with seven attacks from Márquez

Commendable effort by Marc Márquez at the Aragon GP to rediscover victory in MotoGP. Up to seven attacks launched in the last three laps to a formidable Francesco Bagnaia, But all of them were something of the past, because he was riding with the hook in the neck, and the Italian always knew how to maintain the necessary temper so as not to change his line and regain the lead at the exit of each corner. The next thing was to open the throttle to the full of his Ducati to escape just enough from the Honda, which cut him short when braking, but not enough to have passed him clean and thus add the second victory of the season a Marc who is a brave man however you look at it.

The triumph for which he fought with all the Spanish did not come, because it was the day of Bagnaia and the day of his first victory in MotoGP. The Moto2 champion started from pole and took the lead from the first moment, the Repsol Honda being the only one capable of holding his wheel. At times it seemed that Alzamora’s pupil had perfectly controlled his rival and that he was waiting to give him the coup de grace, but this time he was not. A one hundred percent Márquez recovered from his right arm would surely have succeeded, but even then he is in a position to fight for victory.

The cannibal in Marc came out again three laps from the end. There he tried twice. Then two more in the penultimate. And up to three times in the last lap, starting with the first braking, for a total of 14 passes and passed between them in the last three laps. Motorcycling in its purest form beyond the six tenths that were in the goal in favor of Pacco, for the final casting of Marca. It was MotoGP pata negra, of many carats and of those who create fans. In Alcañiz there were 13,578 direct witnesses of a battle that will count with the passage of time, for example next year, when they will be more in the stands.

Beyond the spectacular duel of the two heads, there was also emotion for moments in the fight for third place. Miller, Aleix and Mir aspired to her crossed the equator of the test, but the Australian was left out of the fight for an exit from the track that relegated him to fifth place and not seeing the Spaniards more closely. Mir took advantage of the mess of that action to also pass Aleix and take some ground to cross third and embrace a good podium for him, because he started seventh and Quartararo punctured with a weak eighth place. They were separated by 65 points in the general and now there are 57 between them with 125 to be disputed, with which there is some life, but the Majorcan is compounded by the complication that Bagnaia has surpassed him with this victory and now he is second to 53 points from the leader.

Bastianini, who has had his best weekend, and Binder also finished in front of the Frenchman. And behind, Martín and Nakagami closing the top ten. A Lecuona was left at the gates of that symbolic barrier that came to roll sixth until he slipped on the seventeenth lap. The Valecian left the stamp, but he deserved more prize. And after him, Rins, who started twentieth and his comeback gave him only up to twelfth place. Little for the pilot who did first and second in Alcañiz last year.

Maverick Viñales deserves a special mention, for the expectation that his debut with the Aprilia had generated. It’s early to score, but his starting eighteenth, running the entire race a second slower than Aleix, is slower than some of us expected. He will come back eagerly at Misano next week, at the home of a Rossi who was nineteenth in Alcañiz, penultimate in a goal that he only crossed ahead of his brother Marini.
