Francesco Bagnaia won the Malaysian Grand Prix, the penultimate round of the MotoGP World Championship, but the title win was postponed to Valencia on November 6. The Ducati rider loses two points in the win because rival Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha) finished third, just enough to not give up the title immediately. Second place for Enea Bastianini (Ducati Gresini).
“It’s been a long time since I got on the podium. I gave my all, I couldn’t really do better than that and I’m very proud that I had a good race, especially in the first laps. I’m glad we can get to Valencia with the championship open.” Third place in the Malaysian Grand Prix was suspended by Fabio Quartararo, who finished 12th after starting from 12th with his Yamaha and riding with his broken left finger.
“Today I got the best start of my life, just perfect. Then I took the risk of staying up front but trying to keep up with Jorge Martin he put the rear tire in a little crunch. Then he crashed and anyway I think that day we did a great job for the championship and with our seventh win we can’t help but be happy.” So Francesco Bagnaia after winning the Malaysian Grand Prix
