"I think we lost the World Cup in Mugello when I was unconcentric," Bagnaia calls that out of his point of view crucial races and the only other next to Misano 2, where he did not go to the finish. The fall of the Ducati pilot at the Italy-Grand Prix, where he was not focused on its own statement, passed the day after the deadly accident of Moto3 pilot Jason Dupasquier, in the same curve, in which the 19-year-old Swiss had fallen.

Apart from Mugello, Bagnaia fall in two races, where he has not fallen, but still has dots left: "In the first Austrian race, I decided for a tire that did not work. In Silverstone, the same thing happened again in Silverstone , Thus, I lost the World Cup back to three races. "

But: Bagnaia does not want to know anything about a lost World Cup title. Rather, he considers his season 2021 as extremely positive. "One must not forget that I finished the World Cup last year as 16. So I was pretty far back," recall "Pecco" at 2020 when he had to leave three races due to the leg break from Brno. On the podium he drove once in the Pramac Ducati team once, with P2 at the second Misano race.

On a track still wet following rain in the morning and at the start of the afternoon session, Australian Miller set a time of 1 min 41.305 on his factory Ducati. He was a huge 0.927sec faster than Frenchman Johann Zarco of Ducati's satellite Pramac team. Spaniard Aleix Espargaro on a Aprilia was another 0.059 back.Quartararo was 16th fastest at 1:43.09 and will need to gain six places on Saturday morning to advance directly to the qualifying session for the top 12 places on the grid.

Due to this starting position, "it was not our plan for this year to win the World Cup title," Bagnaia spans the arch on his first season in the Ducati's work team and sets out: "It's already so that it is Then suddenly good for me ran. I have developed a really good feeling for the bike and work with the team is fantastic. I think we can be satisfied because we are second of the World Cup. "

"I do not think that there is a reason to trace the lost title, because this was not our main goal anyway this year," underlines Bagnaia and looks at the absolutely right path thanks to its positive development in the absolutely right way for even greater achievements in the Future.

"At the five past races, I have always fought for the victory. That's a giant step forward, comparing it with the beginning of the season. And that's why we have to be satisfied. For the next year I want to learn from my mistakes And try to fight at the front always ", says" Pecco ".

Minnesota Wild place Jordan Greenway on injured reserve .
He was expected to be a major contributor in the Wild's top-six forward group after scoring a career-high 32 points in 56 games last season. Beckman could certainly get a look playing directly in Greenway’s spot with Ryan Hartman and Marcus Foligno, but head coach Dean Evason could also shuffle the team’s line combinations to put Beckman in less of a checking role.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
