Pecco Bagnaia accomplished in Portimao what he failed to do in Misano. He gave life to a perfect race, with pole, fast lap and victory, dominating from the first to the last lap and proving once again to be the undisputed leading man of Ducati. What happened in Algarve has perhaps made Ducati even more bitter in the mouth for the Misano crash, especially in light of Quartararo's mistake, which however could have been due to a moment of distraction after winning the title.
At least the Borgo Panigale factory won the Constructors' title for the second consecutive time, proving to have the best bike of the lot on the track, capable of winning and getting on the podium with five different riders. But Sunday in Portimao also brought to the center of the controversy the episode that took place on track between Binder and Foggia in Moto3, with the South African who unexpectedly mowed down the Leopard rider proving him of the possibility to play the title until the end against Acosta. A situation that is very worrying, especially in light of Binder's imminent move to MotoGP.
As always, our Pernat commented on what happened on track for us in front of a nice bottle of Prosecco DOC, here is an excerpt of his analysis.
