Unsurprisingly the Italian has caused a stir with his success as he hits the headlines in multiple countries!
It was a stunning comeback title win, and Francesco Bagnaia has deservedly been crowned the 2022 MotoGP™ World Champion. The number 63 ended two long waits, bringing a riders’ title back to Ducatiafter 15 years and also becoming the first Italian since Valentino Rossi to win the title in 13 years. Unsurprisingly, Bagnaia has hit the headlines across the globe, and this is how the world’s media reacted!
Naturally, Bagnaia’s achievement managed to make plenty of headlines in his home country of Italy, the biggest of which can be seen in La Gazzetta dello Sport where he is splashed across the front page, while he also garners attention from La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera.
In Spain, Mundo Deportivo reported how he said he “felt the weight of history on his shoulders” prior to the race, while AS say that Ducati “won’t have to wait another 15 years for a MotoGP title.” Local Valencian publication Levante also had the three World Champions front and centre and made mention of a hat-trick of wins for Spanish rider on Sunday.
