"But Fabios motorcycle cannot be bad either. Otherwise it would not be that strong. This also applies to Aleix, who drove some extraordinary races. His motorcycle cannot be that bad either," says Domenicali about the competition of Yamaha and Aprilia.
The seven seasons so far divided on Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini. In addition, Jack Miller, Johann Zarco, Jorge Martin and Marco Bezzecchi were on the podium. Wouldn't Ducati also lead the World Cup with several drivers?
"I don't see it that way," says Domenicali. "It is clear that our motorcycle has strengthened, but also not so strong aspects. The competition is also strong. I think results are always a result of the team: motorcycle, driver and the team itself."
"Anyone who has the most points in the end is the best. That's how it is. This is racing. We are interested in what the entire team does. If someone is ahead at season half, it means that they have worked better. Are better. We at the back, we have to try to do it better. " With his fourth win of the season in Silverstone, Bagnaia is currently the most successful driver. Fabio Quartararo has "only" won three times, but thanks to better consistency, the Frenchman leads the World Cup ranking. Bagnaia has 49 World Cup points behind - almost two racing wins.

does the Italian fail the second year in a row on expectations? After all, he should win the World Cup title for Ducati. "Difficult to say, because you have to consider the performance of the motorcycle and the driver," says Domenicali.
"This is just my opinion, my personal assessment. I think 'Pecco' is as fast as Fabio. But Fabio was cooler. Apart from Assen, where he wasn't so cool. Think your head and not with his heart. "
"Sometimes you have to accept in the race that your opponent is stronger. Fabio was very good. 'Pecco' has a good learning curve and knows when to attack and when it has to be more concentrated and less emotional. That is very difficult. The winner is not always the most talented driver, but the coolest. "
