Bastianini has half a million reasons to keep shooting

The interesting talk held last week in Japan with Carlo Pernat, who has represented Enea Bastianini and of the one who said that he would throw everything as long as mathematics gives him title options, as much as logic invites us to think that he should help Francesco Bagnaia, Ducati’s great option in his fight for the title with Fabio Quartararo. Among other things, the veteran Carletto emphasized in the interview with AS the professional point of this business, he recalled that the Gresini team’s motorcycles are paid for by the team, and not by Ducati, and that Climbing in the general classification would mean a significant increase in the bonuses of their contracts for their pilot.

Well, as this newspaper has learned in the paddock of Buriram, where this weekend the Thai GP will take place, ‘The Beast’ has at least half a million reasons to continue the attack and not settle for ending up behind Pecco. The Ducati satellite rider, enrolled in the Gresini Racing team, has already won four races this year and He is fourth in the general standings, 24 points behind the third, which is Aleix Espargaró, and would earn half a million in bonuses for beating Aprilia’s.

Bastianini is the first to know that his fight, with four races to go and 49 points behind Quartararo, is no longer a title key, but he does see that third place as accessible. And even until the second, which would make him multiply the bonuses by two and shoot up to the extra million for being runner-up in the championship.

In last Sunday’s race, in Motegi, the one from Rimini, very close to Misano, on the Adriatic coast, was for a good part behind Pecco, then overtook him, pulled towards Quartararo, was overtaken again by his compatriot and was a direct witness to his crash on the last lap when he was running ninth. Let’s see how he manages in Thailand, but it is clear that, sporting glory aside, which is the most important thing for the drivers, he has powerful reasons to continue pushing hard on the asphalt.
