The Ducati Mooney VR46 Racing Team rider mounted a serious challenge for the 2023 San Marino and Rimini Riviera MotoGP which took place on 10 September.
Bezzecchi started on the second grid and went on to finish second as he collected 20 points from the event which boosted his ambitions of winning the MotoGP world title.
The former Mahindra Racing rider is currently placed third on the riders' standings having accumulated 218 points from 12 races.
Bezzecchi is 65 points behind leader Francesco Bagnaia of Ducati with eight races left in the current season.
Why Bezzecchi could win the 2023 Indian MotoGP
The Italian star finished second in the most recent MotoGP race in San Marino and he should be confident of going one step further and winning the Indian MotoGP.
Having won the Argentine MotoGP and French MotoGP this term, Bezzecchi will be keen to record his third victory of the campaign in India.
What did he say?
"At the beginning, I felt incredible. With the adrenaline from the start, the painkillers, for sure it helped. So at the start, I felt great and was catching Jorge [Martin]," Bezzecchi said after the 2023 San Marino MotoGP.
"But then I started to have a bit of pain, especially in the change of direction so in sector one I made a few small mistakes. Lap by lap I was losing a bit but in some laps, I was still able to fight a bit.
"But in other laps, I was making small mistakes and missing a bit of power to try to move the handlebars from left to right. "From the second half, but especially the last three laps I really suffered. I really had a lot of pain."
