Morbidelli on Pasini duel: “I raced as I always do”

Told ahead of lights out to think of the Championship and race for points, Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) in fact turned it up a notch and hit full attack mode in the Aragon GP – dueling with compatriot Mattia Pasini (Italtrans Racing Team) until the two crossed the line only a tenth apart. Morbidelli had got away in the lead before being hunted down, and said he had a decision to make between fighting and riding for the title, choosing the former and the win tasting all the sweeter for it.
