Francesco Bagnaia has another win in MotoGP.

After his win last week in Aragón, the Italian was also the strongest on Sunday in the Grand Prix of San Marino, where he just behind Fabio Quartararo.

Andrea Dovizioso finished last on his return to the premier class of motorsport.

Bagnaia, who took his first MotoGP win in Aragón, started from pole position and had a 2.5 second lead halfway through the race at the Misano circuit.

However, the 24-year-old Ducati driver saw Quartararo come closer and closer in the final phase, but ended up three tenths ahead of the Frenchman.

Enea Bastianini surprisingly finished third in almost five seconds and was on the podium for the first time in his career.

The Italian, who took the Moto2 world title last year, kept six-time world champion Marc Márquez from a podium finish.

Thanks to his second win in a row, Bagnaia is slightly ahead of Quartararo in the championship, who remains firmly in the lead with 234 points.

The difference between the two is now 48 points.

Reigning world champion Joan Mir, who finished sixth in San Marino, is third with 167 points.

Dovizioso had to settle for 21st and last place on his return to MotoGP.

The 35-year-old Italian was supposed to take a year off, but was signed last week by the Petronas YamahaSR satellite team, replacing his compatriot Franco Morbidelli.

Morbidelli, in turn, switched to the factory Yamaha team and finished eighteenth.
