UnipolSai with Pecco Bagnaia and Ducati: MotoGP world champions 2022!

Francesco “Pecco" Bagnaia, on his Ducati DesmoSedici, is MotoGP world champion 2022.

At the end of a thrilling championship and following an amazing comeback that saw him claw back a 91 point deficit from Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), in the final race of the season yesterday in Valencia a 9th place finish was enough for Pecco to secure the world title in the premier motorcycle racing class. A victory that completed the perfect season with Ducati also winning the world Team and Constructors’ championships. 

 Pecco Bagnaia’s triumph represents a landmark victory: the riders’ championship is Ducati’s first for 15 years after Casey Stoner’s victory in 2007 and Bagnaia is the first Italian to win the MotoGP world title since Valentino Rossi’s last crown 13 years ago. But even more incredibly, it is the first time in 50 years, since Giacomo Agostini’s victory on the MV Augusta (1972), that an Italian rider has won the world title on an Italian bike. In a nutshell: the perfect combination, as underlined by the hashtag #perfectcomb1nation that MotoGP has dedicated to Bagnaia’s victory.

 An Italian triumph across the board then and, as Official Sponsor of the Ducati MotoGP Team, a moment of great pride for UnipolSai and all of our Group. A dream come true shaped by a number of key values that we have shared with Ducati for many years: passion, teamwork, innovation and the constant quest for excellence.

A success and a partnership celebrated straight after the race on our UnipolSai corporate social media profiles with a specially produced creative, today also present as a press ad in the leading daily and sports newspapers.

MotoGP Champions 2022: a world of joy. Thank you Pecco, thank you Ducati!
