MotoGP, Rossi: "Marquez is someone who'll devour you if you don't respond right away"

Valentino: "Pecco considers Marc one of his rivals in the World Championship and has changed his approach. If Marquez sees you bleeding, or that you're not as strong, he'll devour you even more."

MotoGP: Rossi:

Pecco Bagnaia's was a masterpiece victory in Jerez, against Marc Marquez under the eyes of Valentino Rossi. During the post-race, the Doctor wanted to praise what the world champion did. Rhen he analyzed the on-track confrontation between Pecco and Marc.

"Pecco was really great," #46 said when interviewed by Sky. "During the year, we try to give him the best. Pecco considers Marc one of  for his rivals in the World Championship, and we've seen his approach. He responds immediately to his overtakes. I think this is very important, because someone like Marc tends to devour you. If he sees you bleeding, or if you're not as strong, he devours you even more. Pecco did three perfect laps today, proving that he's the best out of everyone in riding the Ducati and, at the same time, he's complete."

According to Rossi, Bagnaia's counterattack on #93 was the key moment.

"I followed the race and, in the end, Marc had given more in the last laps, especially in the left turns, where he was covering less ground. Marc quickly made an attempt, but he was good at responding right away and getting back in front. I think that's the moment he won the race."
