Un incredible time: 1.30.450. An amazing pole for Pecco Bagnaia at Le Mans, the second consecutive after Jerez. A team effort too, because he will be on the grid alongside Pecco Jack Miller. The two red drivers went out together in the second time-attack in Q2 and printed two masterpiece laps.
It is Pecco who helped Miller. The Australian said “he did it a show see Pecco from behind while he was making the rounds. “Words that sanction harmony of the official team but which give rise, spontaneous, a question: how it would look Sin with another driver?
Legitimate question since for weeks the voices they want have been chasing each other Enea Bastianini or Jorge Martin as new companions, with Jack Miller out of the red team.
“I wish Jack would stay”
And the question to Bagnaia was asked during a connection to Sky. Pecco replied with sincerity: “I am with Jack very very well, we also work a lot together and I don’t think we can do it with other riders, and I think he’s a rider very very strong, I think it’s a balance difficult to repeat with other riders. But I’m a pilot and I fit, but I would be very happy if it stayed that way“.
Dall’Igna: “We love Jack very much”
Ua declaration, that of Bagnaia, which is at the same time one required for Ducati it’s a’investiture for Miller. We will see how the market will evolve, in the meantime but also Gigi Dall’Igna was heard by Sky on the subject: “Pecco and Jack were amazing, they are two guys who work well together, a great team effort”.
And in view of the market? “We love Jackwe will take the right time to choose both the official team and the satellite teams “answered the Ducati Lenovo team manager.
“We are able to make good use of the bike”
B.agnaia obviously also spoke of pole and of competition of tomorrow: “I’m happy, it must be said that it was one great pole position. We are able to make good use of the bike, in Fp4 we changed something but it didn’t go well and I couldn’t stop the bike, I was going long. In Q2 we went back and I did very well. I’m really happy to have bet on a small change, front and rear, which allowed me to feel much better, even this morning in FP3 “
Pecco is naturally confident: “All this gives me a great boost for tomorrow. Now we have to think about the racing tire.”
At what level is the Ducati GP22?
“We worked a lot, things never come by themselves, we had good results already in races ago. There were some little tricks to do. I’m happy for Jack too, I think he takes off a lot of weight. He’s been massacred lately, too much. “
