Enea Bastianini finished the Spanish Grand Prix with a promising fifth place, demonstrating good consistency at the start of the season. This, notwithstanding a retirement during the sprint at Jerez due to difficult conditions on the track, particularly at turn 5. “ I lacked a little something to be more competitive, especially when braking where I had difficulty overtaking,” recognized Bastianini after this fourth round of the championship where he is in a good third place, behind his teammate Pecco Bagnaia and the one who wants to take his place at Ducati, Jorge Martin.

The day of testing following the race was marked by an inconsequential crash at turn 7, but that did not deter the Italian driver. After this incident, Enea Bastianini quickly found his feet and focused his efforts on improving his braking sensations. “ It was an important day for us. Despite a fall at the start of the day, I immediately regained confidence in the bike. We tested new solutions that I really liked. My pace improved over the laps and
I can now brake more effectively
,” he explained after recording the ninth time of the day in 1’36.792 over 65 laps.
