It was an extraordinary Mugello. A great race that made everyone excited. Jack fights great with the leading group, challenging first Marquez then Petrucci, Dovizioso and Rins. His race pace is competitive and on lap 15 he set the best time. Then unfortunately he crashes at turn 5.
Pecco’s start is not incisive but the Italian rider is very good at recovering positions on positions. On lap 2 he is 11th after having passed Vinales, and on lap 8 he passes Nakagami to conquer the 7th position. Bagnaia got close to the leading group but he crashed when he seemed able to overtake Crutchlow.
Pecco Bagnaia: It’s a shame we couldn’t finish the race. Our goal was to stay in the Top 10 and the race pace was very good. I am still satisfied because in the last three races we have made great steps forward. We’ll try again in Barcelona.
Jack Miller: It was a very exciting race. I was with the front group and it was a fantastic battle. The feeling with the bike was very good and I started to push after seeing Petrucci and Marquez trying to make the gap. I tried to overtake Rins but then I crashed.
