Marco Pessecchi claimed his ‘Rookie of the Year’ title at last Sunday’s MotoGP race at Phillip Island. The Italian fought hard to finish fourth, making him the best debutant in this year’s premier class.
Marco Bezzecchi’s first season in the MotoGP class has been very impressive so far. The Italian had some adjustment issues during the first race weekends of the year, but he and the Mooney VR46 Racing Team persevered. The six-time Grand Prix winner was able to increase his speed in the lower classes, especially on well-known circuits on European soil.
The highlight of Assen so far was when he stayed behind good friend Beko Bagnaia throughout the race and eventually crossed the finish line in second place. He qualified second at Mugello and recently took his first pole position in the MotoGP class in Thailand.
Bessacchi is officially the premier class rookie of the year after finishing fourth in last Sunday’s MotoGP race at Phillip Island, just half a second short of victory. In that individual championship he finished no less than seventy points clear of compatriot and brand-mate Fabio Di Giannantonio.
Marco Bezzecchi: “I’m very happy with the race and the ‘Rookie of the Year’ title. We’ve done a lot of good things since the beginning of the year, we’ve grown a lot and it’s not over yet. What a GP: amazing, brilliant, I was fast, even though I struggled in the last laps, the final I fought for victory till.Peko [Bagnaia] Strong under braking, Mark [Marquez] And Alex [Rins] There was a little more, but I gave it my all and I can’t complain. What a fight, I’m really happy for the team. We are a special group with my family, the academy and Valentino who always count on me.
The nineteenth and final Grand Prix of the season takes place next weekend at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia.
