With video: Bagnaia (2nd) delivers impressive images / MotoGP

MotoGP runner-up Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia led the Ducati armada in Mugello on Friday, giving spectators on-screen spectacular insights thanks to the shoulder camera.

To his home doctor in Mugello, Pecco Bagnaia carries the new “shoulder camera” on his left shoulder. The five-time MotoGP winner was impressed with the images from this particular built-in camera. “Although I’m sorry we could now see how we use the Ride Height Device,” the Ducati star smiled. ‘It’s no secret anyway. It’s beautiful, and Bucine in particular is impressive, “he referred to the 15th and final corner of the 5,245km Mugello Circuit.” I did not think I was that low. Your chin is really low. I did not expect that. , really impressive. “

As a driver, do you notice anything for the camera that is built into the leather suit? “None. You only notice them when you stand, but not on the motorcycle,” Bagnaia waved her off, which is another reason why he plans to take TV viewers on board for the rest of the weekend.

Pecco’s start at the Italian GP was promising with 2nd place after FP2. “I’m happy because we managed to work with the medium-sized front tire, even though in today’s situation you would definitely use the hard mix. It was very hot and the intermediate mixture was on the verge. But because it’s supposed to be a lot cooler on Sunday, this work will definitely help us a lot in the event of a dry run. “

In fact, rain is expected in Mugello over the weekend. «Tomorrow apparently only after qualifying. It could help us, ”says the Italian Ducati factory driver. “If it rains, then hopefully in FP4 so we do not go into qualifying completely ignorant. It will be harder on Sunday, it should be cool and cloudy, and the probability of rain is higher then.”

On dry Friday, six Ducati riders finished in the top 10, four GP22s can be found in positions 2 to 5. Is that the final proof of the influence of this year’s Desmosedici? “We worked very hard for it,” Bagnaia replied with a satisfied smile. “Thats how it should be. If you look at the pace, then Enea [Bastianini auf der GP21] but faster than one or the other GP22, which is ahead. In terms of running pace, we still have some work to do. But I am glad that we were able to significantly improve this situation. We have always worked well with the team and today we took another step forward. I really like the GP22 at the moment, we have managed to set it up quite well. “

However, the 25-year-old Italian is reluctant to make a prediction for the rest of the weekend. “Today it’s very difficult to predict because everyone used different tires. We focused on medium-medium and I have to say the pace was very strong.”

In addition to Bagnaia, Bastianini also counts today’s fastest, Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia) and last year’s winner, Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), among the favorites. “Fabio has a little more problems than last year,” Bagnaia pointed out. “I see myself as having a bit of an advantage because I’ve run more 1:46 times. But it’s hard to run a race where you start, push and run away. Everything also gets a little tighter tomorrow, “because at some point you can no longer improve the pace much. You also have to accommodate the tires. From my point of view, however, the day was very positive because I got along well right away, which is usually the case with Yamaha and Suzuki.”
