MotoGP: Bagnaia reckons his world championship started last week in Argentina


The Argentine GP took place just a few days ago and it's already time to think about Austin. At Termas, not everything went well for the official Ducati team: Bagnaia was the protagonist of a disastrous Saturday, but he patched things up a bit in the race, finishing 5th at the end of a good comeback, something that Miller, 14th at the flag, was unable to achieve.

In Texas a change of pace is needed for both, because after three races both are navigating in the lower areas of the championship standings. Jack is 11th with 15 points and Pecco 14th with 11, certainly not where they should be.

All in all, the Argentine weekend had some positive aspects for Bagnaia.

"During the last GP in Argentina, I finally found the same sensations I had last year on my Desmosedici GP, and I'm very happy because it means we're working in the right direction – he underlined – I can say that my World Championship really started last week, and now I'm determined to maintain this momentum. On Sunday, we'll race in Austin, a track where I finished third last year, starting from pole position. I hope to be as competitive this year and get some more important points for the Championship".

For Miller, however, it will be a question of turning the page.

"I'm happy to get back on track this weekend and put the Argentina race behind me he said – The last GP was strange: we hadn't raced at Termas for two years, and we struggled a bit with such a tight schedule. Now we go back to Texas for the GP of the Americas at a track that I like and where, in general, I can be fast. I'm determined to do well and finally turn my season around".
