If Ducati failed to win in Austin, a first since the 2023 San Marino GP, the riders of the Italian factory were no less protagonists in the intense fight for victory that they fought with Pedro Acosta (Tech3 – KTM) and Maverick Vinales (Aprilia).

Looking back on her drivers' GP of the Americas, Gigi Dall'Igna does not hide her disappointment, while sportingly saluting her competitors.

“It was a long and demanding race, lively and vibrant, on a very physically demanding track, remember the director of Ducati. For Enea [Bastianini], it's an important podium, he's regaining consistency. On the other hand, the Pecco [Bagnaia] race had a completely different flavor. He had no pace, and therefore had to fight back to secure a fifth place.

Congratulations to our opponents, who are fast and talented drivers, He continues. It will be a very open challenge for a world championship which promises to be even more exciting and interesting, I am sure that this will be the case until the last corner. The season is long and difficult, and there will be plenty of ups and downs for everyone. »

Another driver, however, caught the Italian's attention. Author of a start to the race that was as aggressive as it was thoughtful, Marc Marquez managed to take control of the event. However, everything did not go as planned since the No. 93 fell off the line at the start of turn 1 while struggling with brake problems.

“Even though he fell, Marc proved to be an extraordinary performer in the race, greets Dall’Igna. He even managed to take the lead, and that says a lot about his ability and experience, as well as his determination and enthusiasm.

It's not a particularly positive weekend for Jorge either, even if he managed to collect valuable points which keep him at the top of the world championship standings. he concluded.
