He San Marino Grand Prix MotoGPit arrives this weekend at the Marco Simoncelli circuit. The Italian Francesco ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia (Ducati Desmosedici GP23) will be able to be, although touched, in the “home” race, which will be the last appointment before a long transoceanic journey with seven tests in nine weeks.
His spectacular accident on the Barcelona/Catalonia circuit resulted in numerous bruises but no fractureswhich allowed him to travel the same Sunday with his team back to Italy to recover as quickly as possible.

For Bagnaia it is very important to compete in the Italian race, first of all because it is their home race, but also to defend the 50 points of advantage that he has over his immediate pursuer, the Spanish Jorge Martin (Ducati Desmosedici GP23)and before the proximity of a transoceanic journey that must not allow errors.
The leader of the world championship and current world champion, most likely will not be one hundred percent physically, but at least he will be able to defend his interests in the best possible way.

It will not be the case of his teammate, enea bastianiniwho fell in turn one of the Barcelona/Catalonia track and had to undergo surgery at the Modena Polyclinic for his fractures, which will keep him out of appointments in San Marino, India and Japan.
Bastianini is not facing the best of his seasons, since in the first round of the season in Portugal he broke his scapula and was out for several months, to which is now added this new injury, which will force the Ducati team to look for a replacement , probably its test pilot, the Italian Michelle Pirro, until his return.
Like this, ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia will have to try to get the highest possible revenue of points in such circumstances against rivals, the official Aprilia riders, the Spaniards Aleix Espargaró and Maverick Viñales, increasingly grown and effective with the new RS-GP prototypes.
