Bagnaia: “I’m going on holiday with a smile”

Sky Racing Team VR46 rider takes another stunning rookie podium

It’s his first season in Moto2™ but it doesn’t seem like it for Francesco Bagnaia (Sky Racing Team VR46), with the Italian having already taken podiums before finishing off the first half of the season with another in the German GP.

Catching the leaders in the latter stages of the race and holding off Simone Corsi (Speed Up Racing), Bagnaia took P3 to add another big haul of points towards his tally as he pushes to take the Rookie of the Year title.

Francesco Bagnaia, P3: “The race was long, with a very fast rhythm. Corsi was so strong this weekend and I knew he was faster than me so I tried to follow him to close the gap to first, then I tried to overtake him and push to make a gap. Finishing third is very important for me and I go on holiday with a smile!”
