Italian Grand Prix: strategies win at Mugello and bring Danilo Petrucci on the top step right in the home circuitMotoGP | Valentino Rossi | Andrea Dovizioso | Rossi | Championship | Grand Prix | Ducati | Dovizioso | Marquez | Italy | Danilo Petrucci | Ducati Team | Petrucci | Marc Márquez | MotoGp 2019 | ItalianGP | GP19
By now we all know that Marc plays cunning, with a strategy revealed since Friday by his opponents, especially Dovizioso and Petrucci. But, as Dovi said, the fastest lap is very different from the race. And so the Mugello circuit today was the protagonist of a chess game played by three that perhaps the Spaniard did not expect: Dovi and Petrucci opposed him for all 23 laps, overtaking and surpassing him, protecting themselves from their most bitter enemy.
Petrucci cries for joy for the second time: the first two years ago riding the Ducati factory with third place and now with the official Ducati for the first time in his career on the top step !!!
The dark faces of the yellow fans for Valentino's lackluster qualifying and his subsequent fall on the eighth lap of the race at Arrabbiata 2 immediately returned to smile and celebrate an Italian who, given his poor physical condition (he is from three days under antibiotics for a bad flu), this victory was not expected at all.
"Going on the podium at Mugello for me as I watch races since I was a child - said Danilo at a press conference - is the dream of a lifetime, it's incredible. I had already finished third in 2017 and it had already seemed like a victory. But today I brought it home! " Speaking of Dovi with whom he fought until the last corner he said "I was very sorry to put Andrea on the last lap, because half of this victory is dedicated to him who adopted me as a brother from this winter. Unfortunately for what his goal is today he has lost points, Marquez has still gained, but this was a great opportunity for me today. " Speaking of his future goals, he continued: "At the beginning of the championship my goal was to win a race, now that I have succeeded, I can relax and try to win the world championship with Andrea".
