Eight wonders of 2021: Bagnaia joins expanding winners club

Ducati’s leading light in 2021 is now second in the World Championship, 53 points off Quartararo, with a homecoming next on the agenda. Bagnaia finished second and crashed out of the lead at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli last season, all while still nursing a broken leg sustained in the Czech Republic. A fully fit, confident, and more complete Pecco now heads to home territory, pursuing another 25-point haul. It’ll come as no surprise if another win comes his way.
