MotoGP 2022. Nico Cereghini: “It’s nice to discover the character of the riders” – MotoGP

Un season, eight episodes of about 45 minutes each to retrace the 2021 season of the world championship, that of the return to victory of Marc Marquez, of the first title of the highest category won by a French rider (Fabio Quartararo), of the retirement of Valentino Rossi, of the final domination of Ducati and Pecco Bagnaia. And much more. “Unlimited”, the series available on Amazon Prime from March 14, tells the story of MotoGP as it has never been seen before, with the cameras that had the exclusive opportunity to follow the protagonists even in the usually inaccessible moments. The result is of the highest level, with something to improve.

“I believe that the aim of the series is above all to excite young people, bring them closer to motorcycles – is Nico’s assessment -. I did not like the first approach: language, dubbing, tone did not seem exciting to me. But it is only because they are of a certain age: in reality there is freshness, you have to enter into the perspective of a young boy “.

One of the positives is that through the series you get to know the protagonists much better.
“This is one of the fascinating perspectives of the series: some drivers come out very differently than you imagine. Jorge Martin, for example, is a concentrate of energy, while Fabio Quartararo is much sweeter, tied to the family. There are many beautiful, evocative images, some truly fascinating, such as the “camera cars”: all of great quality “.

Cereghini emphasizes the beauty of living otherwise unknown moments. Like when the “race direction” has to intervene to make a decision, specifically in the Barcelona episode starring Fabio Quartararo and the problems with his suit.

“It is clear how certain decisions are very complicated to make. It is nice that she is very “honest”: some statements are left, such as those of Razali, which I would not have expected. This unfiltered sincerity is certainly appreciable “.

Nico points out how Marc Marquez comes out very well from this series (“Much more human, he makes peace with Marc”), while striking the psychological fragility of Maverick Vinales (“He is very tender, but perhaps not cut out to be a pilot: there seems to be a bit of contradiction”) .
“Nice – continues Cereghini – to discover the relationship between the two Espargaro brothers, with Aleix very fiery inside the box”.

Ultimately, what is the opinion on “Unlimited”? The answer in the podcast.

The complete episode, number 60, of #atuttogas, the podcast, can be listened to from next Sunday, March 27, 2022, on and on the main podcast platforms.
