Franceso Bagnaia believes 'many riders can fight' for victory in Austria

Gold and Goose

Despite winning the Austrian Grand Prix last year Francesco Bagnaia is not convinced that he will be able to dominate this weekend.

Francesco Bagnaia has stated ahead of this weekends Austrian Grand Prix that there is likely to be many riders challenging him for victory this weekend. Going to the Red Bull Ring it always looks like a Ducati rider is going to take victory.

However, this season there could be a threat to Ducati coming from Austria's own. This of course is KTM. Bagnaia will have more to worry about than Jorge Martin and Marco Bezzecchi this weekend with Brad Binder and Jack Miller on Red Bull KTM wanting to take victory at KTM's home circuit.


However, in his MotoGP career Bagnaia has stood on the podium twice at the Red Bull Ring, so the Italian rider is still full of confidence heading into this weekend.

"I am thrilled to be back racing in Austria, a track I like a lot and on which I took a nice win last year." Francesco Bagnaia said ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix.

"It is historically a track favourable to the characteristics of our bike, but there will likely be many riders who can fight for a good result here this year.

"Now, our goal is to be consistent and try to do our best always. I am confident and looking forward to the weekend."
