He failed to score a single point in his maiden GP season and while he scored five top-10 finishes in the first half of his second attempt, a mid-season injury derailed his campaign.
With a switch to Mahindra hardware in 2015, Bagnaia scored his maiden Grand Prix podium with a third-place finish at Le Mans. With that momentum continuing he finished his 2016 Moto3™ campaign in fourth overall, after six podiums including two wins.
He switched to the Moto2™ category for 2017, finished every race he started, scored 13 top-10 finishes and earned the coveted Rookie of the Year gong.
Picking up where he left off, the following year he celebrated victory in the opening race and went on to win the 2018 Moto2™ World Championship after six pole positions, 12 podiums, including eight wins.
He showed promise in the pre-season MotoGP™ tests, setting some of the fastest times and outpacing his rival rookies, but he has failed to find consistency.
Riding alongside Aussie Jack Miller in the satellite Pramac Racing squad, you can expect the Italian to be challenging for top-six results once he gets comfortable on premier-class machinery.
