MotoGP, Dall'Igna: "Martin superb at Le Mans, Marquez confirms his giant strides"

"Jorge asserted himself in the GP with the right aggressiveness and competitive sense, while Marc achieved a 2nd place that is worth a victory. Pecco gave everything and Enea, without penalties, would have fought for the top."

MotoGP: Dall'Igna:

Ducati experienced another triumphant Sunday in Le Mans, bringing to five its consecutive successes on the historic track located in the Sarthe region. A statistic made all the sweeter by the fact that the Borgo Panigale manufacturer managed to monopolize the first four positions of the French GP with Jorge Martin, Marc Marquez, Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini, those same bannermen who now stand at the top of the World Championship standings. A magical moment for the Bologna-based manufacturer, greeted with great enthusiasm by the General Manager of Ducati Corse, Gigi Dall'Igna, in his usual stage analysis.

Gigi Dall'Igna's analysis.

"Four Ducatis in the same number of top positions, six in the top seven. A spectacular race on an exemplary day for our teams. The numbers say this but even more convincing is what was seen on the track between Saturday and Sunday, confirming the great work that all our teams are doing with bikes and riders," emphasizes the engineer from Veneto, before examining in more detail the performance of his attacking quartet.

"A superb Martin lapped the Sprint Race winning a heart-stopping GP, in an exciting challenge decided in a sprint after a tight fight until the last corner. As always fast and stubborn, he was able to seize the moment to take the lead and stay there, imposing himself with the right aggressiveness but also perfect competitive sense - notes Dall'Igna - Marquez confirmed the brilliant progress he is making, his giant strides, which he is, taking his Ducati from the starting box 13 to the second position that is worth a victory. He is now consistently in front dueling for the podium and he repeated, with an excellent race, his second place from Saturday after disappointing qualifying."

The performance of the two standard bearers of the official Ducati team was also solid: "Pecco after an excellent start, the ones he knows how to do, was the protagonist of a tight race with great character, he gave everything attacking and defending himself with the generosity of the champion, suffering only at the end the return of Martin first and Marquez then. A seemingly interlocutory result, in reality, in the economy of a long and challenging championship for everyone, these are not easy races that you have to know how to lead to the podium - remarks the 57-year-old - Enea's fourth place is an important result taking into account the penalty he had to serve, without which in my opinion he could have fought for the top, and he would have deserved it given also the fast lap of the race made in the last laps."

With riders in such good shape, it won't be easy for the Borgo Panigale-based manufacturer to be able to decide on the next lineup for the Lenovo Ducati team, but before thinking about the future Dall'Igna wants to enjoy the present and celebrate the poker of aces that set the Bugatti circuit ablaze: "Today I'm enjoying our bikes and our teams, our riders and our mechanics, our colors and our wonderful fans! - he concluded - To everyone a Heartfelt Thank You. Ducati Red!"
