I hope Bagnaia will win it as he has been much more consistent this year than Fabio has been. In my opinion Bagnaia would be a more than deserved winner. And so would Ducati be.
I agree on the part that Ducati would be a deserved winner. But I can't agree on Bagnaia. Due to the fact that he is on brutally dominant bike that even rookies rode to pole positions and fights for top 3 places he should have wrapped this championship a long time ago. But he was super incosistent in the first part of the season, made a lot of errors (5 DNFs from crashes for example) and it dragged all the way to the Valencia.
Also, Ducati putting all of their might behind him, publicly scolding their own riders for battling against him is what will probably leave a bad taste not so much on Bagnaia as on a sport itself. Ducati has so many bikes (that are the fastest on the grid) to throw between their lead rider(s) and yet were unable to wrap the championship up ahead of a rider on arguably the 2nd slowest bike there is
