Suzuki’s Alex Rins put up a impressive performance at the track Ricardo Tormo to give the Hamamatsu factory a heartfelt end of its last race before the MotoGP operations ended in the event that saw the Spaniard won the race in the Grand Prix of Valencia.
Fabio Quartarararo who was required just an overall win if Bagnaia placed 14th or better was a remarkable ride but it wasn’t enough to allow him to keep his title. The Frenchman placed fourth and the Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia, who saw the chequered flag on ninth place, was able to take home his twenty-two MotoGP World Champion.
Fabio Quartarararo was emotional and teary-eyed when the actor admitted that he had turned off the TV in order to not watch Francesco Bagnaia’s celebrations.
Bagnaia sparked the biggest comeback in premier class motorcycling when he overcome an 91-point deficit in his midseason position. He became one of the few Italian to win since Valentino Rossi, in 2009 win victory in the MotoGP World Championship. It was also the first time Ducati had won a title following an absence of 15 years.
