JEREZ – Historic day for the Ducati, a first and a second place that also applies the world record.

“I’m really happy, for all the guys and for the two riders, they did a great job on a track that usually puts us in trouble. It is special. We have always had faith in Jack Miller, he is a champion, he did a special race and also Bagnaia did something great “, comments the engineer to Sky. Gigi Dall’Igna, creator of this amazing performance.

Ducati had triumphed only once in Jerez, in 2006 with Loris Capirossi: this shotgun has a special flavor. And he has it in particular for Miller, who came here later a very difficult start to the season: he already seemed destined for the role of number two in the garage, but the Australian has shown that he deserves that place in the team. Bravo Jack, you deserve it.

As well as Bagnaia deserves the lead in the standings: 2020 taught us that regularity can make a huge difference and he is making it: he had some problems at the beginning, he seemed a bit in trouble in the middle of the race, but then he had a crazy reaction, winning a second place that with a few more laps it would have been a success.

Once again the appointment with the top step of the podium is postponed, but Pecco can be consoled, in a big way, with the first place in the standings

Very good Morbidelli

To complete the podium, a tenacious Franco Morbidelli, who with the vehicle he has, has done what he could: he cannot achieve more with a 2019 bike. Franco has made the difference, is the first Yamaha to cross the finish line, Why Fabio Quartararo, after taking the lead on the fourth lap, after three wonderful overtaking at turn 13, one per lap, to the three riders in front of him, after having extended up to +1 “4 on Miller, he collapsed suddenly.

He was passed on lap 16 by Miller and then sank to 13th place, perhaps for arm problems. It’s hard to understand what happened without talking to him first.

Suzuki: Mir only

In fourth place a Takaaki Nakagami always fast here (he was also 4 in 2020), in fifth place Joan Mir, who, like Vinales, opted for the soft front. Perhaps a wrong choice, but Mir, in any case, clearly confirms himself as the number one in the box, because Alex Rins he fell again.

Mir is driving well, but this year the situation seems more difficult for him.

Good Aprilia

Another nice result of theAprilia, sixth at 5 ”164: position and gap very similar to the previous races.

It means that the base is very good, that the growth compared to the past is great, that a little bit is still missing, but that we are always much closer. Bravo Aleix.

Marquez without forcing, Rossi back

Marc Marquez he finished ninth in a race in which he picked up some pace, without ever forcing too much. It takes time to recover.

Inevitably in great difficulty Valentino Rossi, 17th, also behind his brother Luca Marini (16esimo).
