We have incredibly sad news coming from the world of MotoGP. The manager of Gresini Racing and motorbike legend Fausto Gresini has passed away. The 60-year-old Italian contracted COVID-19 at the end of 2020 and spent more than two months battling the disease and the consequences, caused by it. Unfortunately, the battle was lost.

Throughout his career Gresini participated in 132 races, in which he had 21 wins, 47 podiums, 17 pole positions, and 13 fastest laps. As a team manager he also got two titles – in 2001 in the 250cc class and in 2010 in Moto2.
