Francesco Bagnaia admits that he is unlikely to catch Fabio Quartararo in the championship battle.

Why it matters: Bagnaia is 52 points away from Quartararo with 3 races left in the 2021 season.


  • The Ducati rider assures that he does not feel much pressure.
  • Bagnaia is not going to do risky moves to catch Quartararo.

What he had to say:

  • I’m here just to try to close this gap that looks like it’s impossible to close. But I’m just trying to… I’m more relaxed than Fabio, I think, because Fabio has to think about the championship.”
  • “For sure, I will not do something like Aegerter [one of MotoE title contenders] because if you have the possibility to overtake, you overtake, and if you don’t have it it’s too risky to do something.”
