Bagnaia: "The best race of my career"

Bagnaia: 'The best race of my career'

Mapfre Team Mahindra rider Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia claimed third place in a thrilling Monster Energy Grand Prix de France.

The 18-year-old Italian had qualified on the front row for the first time, and he didn’t put a wheel wrong throughout a punishingly competitive 24 laps of the 4.185-km Bugatti circuit.

Bagnaia: "This was for sure the best race of my career. I fought a lot with the other two Italian riders, and that was great. In the remaining two laps, I tried to take first position, and I could make it. But it was so difficult, a real fight. I gave my best, and this third place is the result. I’m very happy, because the team and Mahindra have been working a lot. This is a good reward. Now we have to continue."
