Bagnaia could set a record in Germany

Bagnaia to match Stoner in Germany? -Michelin

There are two Grands Prix left before the summer break of this 2024 season. MotoGP, which has until now been disputed to say the least between different protagonists. Double reigning world champion, Francesco Bagnaia had a more complicated start to the campaign than during the previous season, but was not absent from the breathtaking duels which took place on the track.

On the contrary, the Italian continues to increase his statistics with Ducati. He could also take a record from Casey Stoner during the German Grand Prix.

It has now been four consecutive Grands Prix that the representatives of Borgo Panigale have blocked every available step on the podium in the main race, and Bagnaia was one of the winners in each of them.

Ultra dominant on home soil, during the Italian Grand Prix, the n°1 won the event ahead of his teammate, Enea Bastianini, to secure his fortieth podium with the Italian brand.

As a result, the defending champion is only two lengths away from matching another legend from Bologna, since Casey Stoner currently holds the record for the most podiums with Ducati, with 42 achievements.

If Bagnaia gets on the box, during each of the Dutch and German Grands Prix (next July), he will therefore live up to the latter. However, he will have to wait a little longer before thinking of overtaking him, since the next opportunity would present itself to him in August, with the first meeting of the second part of the season at Silverstone (Great Britain).

Note that this podium was also the 63rd for the Ducati rider in his career, as many as the number he wore before winning his first title. He also managed to score Ducati's 93rd victory, on the occasion of his 93rd start in the premier category.
