Gigi Dall’Igna has directed words of praise towards Marc Marquez after his intense duel with Francesco Bagnaia at Jerez.

Gigi Dall’Igna, much like all spectators at the Spanish MotoGP, was gripped with anticipation as Marc Marquez and Francesco Bagnaia engaged in a thrilling battle for the lead.

It was the first time the two had competed for position since their collision in Portimao, and once again, Marquez and Bagnaia made contact during the intense showdown in Jerez.

However, both riders managed to stay upright, and despite the contact, there was a clear display of mutual respect between the two champions.


Reflecting on Bagnaia’s victory, Dall’Igna remarked, “Pecco delivered an exceptional performance right from the opening lap, demonstrating impeccable riding skills and leaving his mark on a challenging and fiery race. His display showcased his technical prowess, intelligence, and character.”

“Following the disappointment of the Sprint race, a strong response was crucial, and Pecco delivered exactly that. His ability to turn the tide of the weekend has become characteristic of him: always finding renewed motivation, putting setbacks behind him, and focusing solely on the race. He gives his all in every battle, showing no reluctance to push the limits despite the inherent risks.”

“In essence, he emerged victorious with the authority befitting the number one on his bike.”

In his post-race analysis, Dall’Igna notably acknowledged Marquez’s commendable performance, which aligns with their positive interactions throughout the Spanish GP weekend.


Dall’Igna further remarked, “This achievement is also a testament to the resilience and determination of Marquez, a reinvigorated champion whose performance only amplifies Pecco’s success and underscores the collective efforts of their team.”

“The battle between Marquez and Bagnaia was tough yet fair, characterized by mutual respect. The display of sportsmanship between these two titans at the race’s conclusion is emblematic of that, a gesture that I deeply appreciate and find particularly satisfying.”

While Marquez and Bagnaia captivated spectators with their thrilling duel at the front, championship leader Jorge Martin’s crash opened the door for both riders to make significant gains in points.

Regarding the Pramac rider, Dall’Igna commented, “It’s impossible not to mention Martin and his unfortunate crash while leading in the latter stages of the race.

Without this setback, he would undoubtedly have been at the forefront of an exhilarating finish, given his remarkable performance and competitiveness, as evidenced by his Sprint Race victory on Saturday.”
