2021 Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas Race Preview
The previous round in San Marino saw Lenovo Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia claim a second successive victory, though Riders’ Championship leader Fabio Quartararo of Monster Energy Yamaha came home in second place to ensure he still has a strong lead – 48 points – over the Italian at the top of the table.
“I knew that it was very important to start well and already be pushing from the start because with the soft [rear tyre], the grip initially was better,” said Bagnaia after the race. “I was also knowing that Fabio [Quartararo] in the last part of the race would be faster with the medium.
So, I just tried to be fast and constant from the start. “I did my best start ever because I started when the light went off, so it was incredible. I trained a lot for this. When I passed the first straight I was already looking to the board and it was plus 1.0 seconds which was incredible already.
