MotoGP: Bastianini Aiming For P3 In The World Championship

MotoGP: Bastianini Aiming For P3 In The World Championship

© 2022, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Gresini Racing:


#ValenciaGP preview. There is a lot still in play for the final round of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship, with Enea Bastianini in contention for third overall. After Sepang’s excellent podium, the rider #23 is only one point away from Aleix Espargaró, who is ahead of him in the standings.

After clinching the 2022 Best Independent Rider title thanks to an impressive tally of wins and podiums – an achievement that was one of the many highlights of Gresini Racing’s incredible MotoGP return season – Bastianini will now try to secure also the world championship top three: he will only need to score one point more than the #41 of Aprilia Racing.

The Ricardo Tormo Circuit is a favourable one for ‘Bestia’, who also did well last year in his MotoGP debut (8th) even though he is yet to step on the Valencian podium – his best result is a fourth place in 2016, Moto3 class):

The season finale will represent an important round also for Fabio Di Giannantonio, who wants to wrap up his MotoGP rookie season with a smile after several ups and downs. The #49 was on the podium there last year in his final Moto2 race before the jump to MotoGP.

ENEA BASTIANINI #23 (4th in the championship standings with 211 points)

“This will be my last race with team Gresini and I will try to celebrate it the best way possible. It will surely be a complex race, with many competitive riders… We’re on a roll and we know our potential, so we’ll try to do well and finish in the world championship top-three.”

FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO #49 (20th in the championship standings with 23 points)

“A challenging season is about to end, but we’re not giving up at all. We’ll try to have a good weekend before diving into testing with the new bike. Our head is already focused on 2023, but we also want to be back in the points on a track that I like and where I’ve always done well.”
