2024 Italian Sprint GP Results

Pecco Bagnaia picked up where he left off at Catalunya last Sunday. The reigning MotoGP World Champion took the lead at the start of the first lap and gave no margin to his rivals, dominating the 11 laps of the sprint race. Behind him, Marc Márquez finished second, and Pedro Acosta, who saw Jorge Martín crash in front of him, finished third.

Franco Morbidelli, Brad Binder, Fabio Di Giannantonio, Álex Márquez and Aleix Espargaró completed the top three.

Difficult race for Repsol Honda riders

Joan Mir and Luca Marini continue to work hard in the Repsol Honda pit box. The Spaniard qualified eighteenth in Q1 and, after the start, he managed to maintain his position and recover some places due to the falls in the front positions. However, a mid-race incident caused him to lose positions and he finally took the pit lane.

His team-mate Luca Marini started in 24th position and once again managed to keep his pace to cross the finish line in 19th place.

Tomorrow, at 14.00h, both will face the main race of the Italian Grand Prix.

Statements

Joan Mir

“Looking at the positive points from today we can see that this new aero package is working better. It’s a small step forward which is welcome. We made a pretty decent Qualifying, matching our best from Qatar, and not so far from first. We wanted to put everything together in the Sprint, but we had some vibrations that prevented me from riding as they were getting worse and worse and I had to retire from the race. We are checking exactly what caused this so that we can show our full potential tomorrow.”

Luca Marini

“It was really nice to race in front of my home fans for the first time as a factory rider today. Unfortunately, it was a complicated day otherwise and we made some big changes to the bike after Qualifying and before the Sprint. This change helped my feeling but we need to keep working on the setting to find a better bike for Sunday.”
