MotoGP, the specter of incompleteness on Pecco Bagnaia. He is already in the top-10 of the multiple winners without a world title! – OA Sport

Francesco Bagnaia is experiencing a professionally complicated moment. After a dull start to the season, the Piedmontese from Ducati suddenly turned on in Jerez de la Frontera, where he dominated the race. It seemed the beginning of an electrifying challenge for theIris with Fabio Quartararo. Instead, in the next four GPs, they finished well three falls, two of which were caused by errors committed independently by the 25-year-old Piedmontese. In the middle of the World Cup, Pecco it is found at 91 points from El Diablo and he will hardly be able to make up for his delay from the French. The appointment with the title therefore appears already postponed to 2023. Therefore, a fact that has been submerged up to now leaps to the eye.

The success achieved at Mugello was the 6th in MotoGP in career di Bagnaia, who therefore, relatively to the premier class, entered the top-ten of men with more races won without ever having graduated as World Champions! It seems incredible that the Piedmontese may have already entered this particular ranking relating to “Unfinished”yet it is a real and concrete fact. Pecco is rapidly climbing the ranking of “Pyrrhic victories” .

Obviously this data lends itself to one double reading key. The first, caustic and pessimistic, is to have a very fast driver in front of him, but at the same time too inconstant to be able to aspire to the title. On the other hand, the Ducati rider in the last five GPs has been keeping an “all or nothing” profile, having a roadmap of 2 affirmations and 3 crashes. The second interpretation, confident and optimisticis that Bagnaia is only passing through this singular ranking and the many successes are the signal of how he is destined to come out of it when he graduates World Champion.

What is the correct exegesis of the data can only be understood with the hindsight. Until then, the two philosophies will be destined to clash with equal strength and dignity. For the record, the record holder in the “Pyrrhic Winners” ranking is Dani Pedrosa, who is not by chance unanimously considered the strongest centaur of all time to have never won a World Cup. The top-class Spaniard collected well 31 milestones, without ever hitting the title. It is curious to note that half of the top ten is made up of Italians, as can be seen from the table below.
