The 6th meeting of the season at Mugello will have thrilled us from start to finish. A breathtaking race and a big first: Danilo Petrucci on the highest step of the podium in front of his audience.
For the third consecutive year, Ducati triumphs at home and in what way! Until the last lap, four drivers could potentially win. But the X-lite driver has had a strong back and the Italian leaves with the very first victory of his career in MotoGP.
Impossible to count the number of overtaking during this GP of Italy. But what is certain is that there is one that Danilo Petrucci is not ready to forget. At the start of the last lap, the Italian driver took advantage of a touch between Dovizioso and Marquez to regain the lead of the race … and never lose it again. He then fully resisted the return of Marquez to afford his first win in the queen class.
