Bagnaia: “I will not give up”

It will take a remarkable turnaround and an unprecedented collapse for Bagnaia to be crowned the 2021 MotoGP™ World Champion but, because of that very fact, he believes all of the pressure is on the shoulders of Quartararo. “I’m more relaxed than Fabio,” explained the 24-year-old following a seventh podium of the year at the Circuit of the Americas, believing that the expectation that the Yamaha man will wrap up the title in Misano could play into his favour.
