Quartararo wins at Mugello, but the mourning for the loss of the young Jason Dupasquier is much heavier than a victory.

A very heavy edition this edition of the Mugello MotoGp: at only 19 years old, Jason Dupasquier, could not survive the serious consequences of the accident he had yesterday. Sport loses an excellent athlete, the world a young and smiling boy. Our condolences to family, friends, team.

The Yamaha Frenchman wins the Grand Prix ahead of Joan Mir and Miguel Oliveira, who actually finished second at the checkered flag, but is penalized for putting his wheels in the green on the last lap. Then, another novelty, Oliveira returns second again, and Mir third because he too would have pinched the green. Pecco Bagnaia crashes on the second lap while he was in the lead, a real shame after the performance in qualifying. The other Italians do not work miracles: Danilo Petrucci finishes ninth, Valentino Rossi tenth, Michele Pirro 13th, Lorenzo Savadori 15th, Franco Morbidelli 16th, Luca Marini 17th.

But in all fairness, today's results have gone unnoticed given what happened to the young Dupasquier. There were many controversies and conflicting opinions: there were those who said that we shouldn't have run, those in favor, who didn't know what to do. Surely, although a pilot, after a minute of silence, resets his brain, it is unthinkable that humanly this loss has not affected the performance of some.
