Puig's Madness and Midseason Excellence Awards

Puig’s Madness and Midseason Excellence Awards

Our famous colleague La gazzetta dello sport “, the sports daily with the pink pages, has made an interesting calculation of the performances of the pilots in the middle of the season, a little more, we have already held 11 GPs concerning the stars Quartararo, Bagnaia, Aleix Espargaro, but also Marini , Beceki and Viñales…
As for wins, three draws from Quartararo, Bagnaia and Bastianini. Three wins each. With an important moment, Bastia won at the start of the season and Bagnaia at the end of this first part of the year… Which could be an Indian sign that will be confirmed at Silverstone and in Austria in August. However, Bastiat and Bagnaia had no podiums other than wins, unlike Quartararo… Their six wins from eleven GPs keep Ducati at the top of the constructors’ classification…
That’s right, on this subject, Quartararo has not only three victories, but only six podiums. Therefore, his global leadership is logical and, above all, brilliant! The second in this ranking is Aleish Espargaro, logically also Quartararo’s main rival in the overall standings. Five podiums, including a win, then we find Zarco, who, as a reminder, is third overall, even with a big gap to the first two… Due to the lack of wins, of course.
We move to the pole positions with Maestro Banya. Four poles on the clock, ahead of Jorge Martin and Alejandro Espargar who have won two. Ducati, once again, the richest brand on pole, the Italian brand has eight of the eleven GPs!
We know, and it has been demonstrated, what a title, what matters as much as wins is consistency. Aleix Espargaro is the prize for excellence, scoring in all eleven Grands Prix at the start of the season ! Quartarara and Binder scored points in ten races due to crashes.
An interesting calculation of the number of kilometers traveled in the GP and therefore without accidents and without breakdowns… The two best drivers in this point are Marini, Rossi’s brother, and Aleix Espargaro, both of whom have completed 1234 km of GP. that’s only eleven races contested so far… As a result, Marini has come out of anonymity a bit, it must be hard to be Dottore’s brother even if you don’t share the same name… In short, congrats to the (step) brother…
Among the contested kilometers leading the race, the best is Banyaya with 378 km as the leader… Quartararo leads with 323 km, Jack Miller has 108 on the clock. We know that in addition to Quartararo, the other two are well behind in points, so the strategy is not to be constantly ahead at the cost of many crashes at times… Proof that Bastianini has as many wins as Bagnaia, with three, but only 84km ahead is the right overtaking strategy at the right time, unfortunately Bastiat has also had poor results and is one point behind Banya in the overall….
We are naturally going for the fastest laps in the race, Fabio Quartararo has four on the clock.r, Bagnaia three, Bastia and Aleix Espargaro two. And each of them won at least once in the first eleven GPs, speed in a race is not always synonymous with the title… Sometimes it is anyway… Provided you are consistent, always the same rule.. .
We ended up with a sad record of falls… Definitely Bezzecchi esolid rookie, second at Assen, it had to be done but fifteen crashes is a record for this start of the season and it’s his… Bastianini fourteen, Alex Marquez twelve, Jorge Martin eleven, Pol Espargaro and Marco Marquez ten to say the least , we started our report of the day with this topic, Honda has a bad team manager, but also a bad part of the cycle …
The least falls? Viñalesoff the canvas on Aprilia, with his first podium in Assen, it could be the return of good weather for this driver who often feels bad …
Let’s go ten more GPs, definitely Quartararo is the leader and all the better, being the only one can be tough….
