Catalan MotoGP: Francesco Bagnaia wants future team-mate to be like Jack Miller | MotoGP

The Mugello winner, who just missed another MotoGP pole, will start behind pre-race favorite Aleix Espargaro.

The Aprilia rider has been nothing short of sensational so far this weekend, but it’s unlikely that having the best race pace alone will suffice.

Therefore, Bagnaia, who admitted Espargaro is one step ahead of the rest, believes he can fight for victory if he plays his cards right.

“I was very close to another pole position, but this weekend Aleix [Espargaro] is really strong, like all other weekends, but more this weekend,” said Bagnaia.

“I don’t know how to beat him, but I think the key is to be smart with the rear tire. It’s true you can go fast at the beginning of the race, but then you have to be consistent at the end of the race. the race .

“If you push early, you’re not constant at the end of the race. It’s going to be a survival race because you have to be very smart in the acceleration.”
