Not to spoil his image, especially ahead of some marketing activities and World Ducati Week, scheduled for 22-24 July, Ducati has insisted that Francesco Bagnaia deleted all the “apologies” he had posted on his social media pages concerning the drunken accident in Ibiza.
On Wednesday, July 6, it was reported that Bagnaia was out partying a bit with his Ducati Lenovo Teammates in Ibiza the morning before, and after the party, he went by car to his hotel. No one prevented him from taking a cab, but for some reason, Bagnaia decided to drive himself.
But he didn’t make it to the hotel, getting into a strange traffic accident on a completely empty road. When the police arrived on the scene, doubts arose about whether the motorcycle racer was sober, and a test revealed that Francesco had nearly four times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood.
Everything would have gone unnoticed if Bagnaia had not issued a statement – an “apology” he made to his subscribers for the incident. Ducati Corse had no comment on the situation, but a day later the post with the “apology” was deleted from Bagnaia’s pages.
Francesco Bagnaia get a fine. The case is closed.
