16.57 We remind you that tomorrow, during the FP3 which will be held in full sun, it will be almost impossible to improve today’s times. So Bagnaia should have harpooned the pass for Q2 for the broken headphone. We hope that, as it has often accustomed us to in 2021, it will manage to rise by blows during the weekend: the gap to be filled with Suzuki and Honda is not small (+0.539).

16.54 Today Honda impressed us. A more manageable bike than in the past, with an enhanced engine: it is no coincidence that not only Marc Marquez is going very fast, but also Pol Espargarò. Suzuki is scary, because now it seems to have become competitive even on the flying lap. Ducati, on the other hand, did not start as it ended in 2021: at the moment it has to chase.

16.51 A Friday dedicated to the Spaniards, as evidenced by the ranking: four Iberians in the first four places. For now, the Italians are distant, but the weekend is long. Suzuki and Honda are certainly the bikes with the best set-up, while Ducati is really struggling to find the ideal set-up, dealing with lack of front grip. Yamaha better on pace than flying lap.

16.50 To report the 17th place of Maverick Vinales (Aprilia), soundly defeated in the direct confrontation with his partner Aleix Espargarò, 7th.

16.49 The other Italians: Bastianini 11th, Dovizioso 14th, Bezzecchi 20th, Di Giannantonio 22nd, Marini 23rd.

16.47 FP2 ended with Alex Rins (Suzuki) in front of everyone in 1’53 ″ 432. 2nd Marc Marquez (Honda) at 0.035, 3rd Joan Mir (Suzuki) at 0.147. Followed by Martin, Morbidelli (who placed his paw in the final), Miller, Aleix Espargarò, Quartararo, Pol Espargarò and Bagnaia. This is the top10.

16.46 Bagnaia is saved, closes 10th. But it wasn’t a good Friday for Ducati, not at all: there is an abyss with Suzuki and Honda.

16.45 Rins returns to the lead with 0.035 on Marquez. Bagnaia could save the top 10 in extremis.

16.43 Marc Marquez takes the summit again: 1’53 ″ 467. It’s a super Honda. 2nd Rins at 0.070. Bagnaia is 8th and risks a lot, because he is not improving.

16.42 Martin is 2nd at 0.115, 5th Bagnaia at 0.434, but now everyone is improving.

16.42 Bagnaia is improving, but does not have the pace of the first.

16.41 Mir improves, but remains third at 0.278 from Rins.

16.40 Bagnaia returns with new soft tires. We remind you that it is essential to close these FP2s in the top 10 positions.

16.39 Rins in command with 0.174 on Marquez and 0.439 on Mir. Suzuki and Honda on the shields. What an effort for Franco Morbidelli, 18th at 1 ″ 698.

16.37 Bagnaia returns to the pits, Quartararo instead goes to relaunch.

16.37 There was a contact between Gardner and Miller, the Race Commission will evaluate it at the end of the tests.

16.35 He goes up Bagnaia, he is 7th at 0.812. The gap is still noticeable compared to the best, but we can see some improvement. A Ducati difficult to fine-tune.

16.35 Rins in command with 0.174 on Marquez! Suzuki flash!

16.33 Four Spaniards in the first four places: Marquez, Mir, Pol Espargarò and Martin. 5th Quartararo, 6th Bastianini. Now let’s see if Bagnaia will be able to shake off with soft tires.

16.32 Marc Marquez beats the competition in 1’53 ″ 711: trims 265 to Mir. Honda is looming as the bike to beat.

16.32 Mir flies to the top in 1’53 ″ 976, 65 thousandths over Pol Espargarò. But Marc Marquez arrives …

16.31 Now all the drivers on the track with soft tires, it’s time hunting!

16.30 SkySport reports that Bagnaia complained to the team for lack of front grip.

16.29 Joan Mir climbs to second position at 0.346 from Pol Espargarò.

16.28 Bagnaia is stopped in the pits, the Ducati set-up is being worked on. It is clear that the findings are not very encouraging so far.

16.28 Alex Marquez still on the ground, crazy! This time at turn 10.

16.26 Pol Espargarò improves, 1’54 ″ 041. The Spaniard is flying with the soft.

16.25 Alex Marquez (Honda LCR) also falls at turn 6.

16.25 Fall for Luca Marini (Ducati VR46) at turn 1.

16.24 Two brothers in front. Pol Espargarò (Honda) flies to the lead in 1’54 ″ 155, trims 0.304 to Aleix. Attention friends, Honda has really made a great bike this year, as it hasn’t happened for years.

16.22 Aleix Espargarò improves: 1’54 ″ 463 with a pair of soft tires. Bagnaia is 16th at 0.961 with an average at the rear.

16.21 Aleix Espargarò (Aprilia) always in command with 0.158 on Marc Marquez and 0.273 on Mir.

16.20 Maverick Vinales (Aprilia) is 14th at 0.679.

16.18 The placements of the Italians: 5th Bastianini, 11th Dovizioso, 15th Morbidelli, 19th Bagnaia, 20th Di Giannantonio, 21st Bezzecchi, 22nd Marini.

16.16 Good responses on the pace for Quartararo and Marc Marquez. Long pit stop for Francesco Bagnaia.

16.14 Aleix Espargarò in command in front of Marc Marquez, Mir and Martin. 5th Bastianini, 6th Binder, 7th Quartararo, 8th Rins. Bastianini aside, the Italians are struggling.

16.13 Quartararo still grows, third at 0.220. Morbidelli, on the other hand, is only 15th, having performed well this morning.

16.11 The Yamaha goes up, Quartararo is sixth at 0.368 from the top. At the moment in third and fourth position we find the unofficial Ducatis of Bastianini and Martin. Miller and Bagnaia are instead 17th and 19th.

16.10 Dovizioso grows, tenth at half a second. Aleix Espargarò takes the top in 1’54 ″ 490 with Aprilia.

16.08 Soft-media for Marquez, in command with almost 2 tenths on Bastianini.

16.07 Quartararo climbs to seventh position, Bagnaia is not yet seen. Ducati must react.

16.06 BASTIANINI IN COMMAND! Does 0.069 better than Binder. For the Romagna soft at the front and medium at the rear.

16.05 Alex Rins, with used soft tires, is 3rd at 0.080 from Binder, always in command with the time of FP1.

16.04 Immediately a good lap for Bastianini, who rises to 10th place in the combined ranking.

16.02 Soft at the front and medium at the rear for Fabio Quartararo and Francesco Bagnaia.

16.01 Immediately all the pilots on the track.

16.00 GREEN TRAFFIC LIGHTS ! The FP2 of the Qatar GP 2022 of MotoGP has begun!

15.58 FP2 will last 45 minutes.

15.57 It is a very important turn. The regulation has not changed: the first 10 arrive in Q2 at the end of FP1, FP2 and FP3. Tomorrow’s FP3s, however, will take place during the day, so in all likelihood the track will be slower than these FP2s.

15.53 Excellent responses also from Suzuki. However, remember that the FP1 took place in broad daylight, while the FP2s will be more reliable because at night (even qualifying and the race will take place under artificial lights).

15.48 The one who impressed is Honda. A much more manageable bike with an enhanced engine. It is no coincidence that not only Marquez shone, Pol Espargarò and Takaaki Nakagami heats. It is no coincidence that the Spaniards have indicated the Spanish champion as the # 1 favorite for the World Cup …

15.42 Speaking of manufacturers , so far three different manufacturers have excelled in Lusail. Yamaha boasts 10 claims, including three consecutive with three different men (!) Between 2015 and 2017. Then follows Ducati with 5 wins, while Honda closes at 3 , historically never really at ease on this one. track.

15.40 It should also be noted that Casey Stoner was the only rider able to win on two different bikes . The Australian achieved his first three wins on the Ducati , while the last one was collected on the Honda .

15.37 LOSAIL – TOP CLASS VICTORIES
4 – STONER Casey [AUS] (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011)
4 – ROSSI Valentino [ITA] (2005, 2006, 2010, 2015)
3 – LORENZO Jorge [SPA] (2012, 2013, 2016)
2 – DOVIZIOSO Andrea [ITA] (2018, 2019)
2 – VIÑALES Maverick [SPA] (2017, 2021 Qatar)
1 – GIBERNAU Sete [SPA] (2004)
1 – MARQUEZ Marc [SPA] (2014)
1 – QUARTARARO Fabio [FRA] (2021 Doha)

15.35 There are four active men to boast a victory in Lusail in their palmares. Andrea Dovizioso (2018, 2019) and Maverick Viñales (2017, 2021 ) triumphed twice. In addition, Marc Marquez (2014) and Fabio Quartararo (2021) also took places on 1 single occasion.

15.30 The most successful riders in Lusail are Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi , both of whom have reached 4 victories. The Australian won in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, while the Doctor did so in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2015. As you can see, the centaur native of Southport holds the record of consecutive successes , being the the only one who managed to achieve a three-game winning streak. At the same time, the Italian holds the longevity record , having excelled within a decade.

15.25 The premier class played 18 races in Lusail, one less than the lower categories. This is because in 2020 the competition was canceled due to the rampant Covid-19 pandemic. Moto2 and Moto3 were able to take to the track anyway, as riders and teams were already present on site before the “squeeze” on international travel. It should also be noted how, of the 18 tests sent on stage, “only” 17 had the denomination of GP of Qatar. Last year, in fact, a double header was disputed in order to recover the canceled Argentine GP. Therefore an impromptu Doha Grand Prix was added.

12.32 Suzuki and Aprilia also very well, while Binder’s flicker with the KTM appears impromptu. The Yamaha is discreet, with Morbidelli more at ease than Quartararo.

12.30 Honda took the biggest steps forward compared to 2021. A more manageable bike with an enhanced engine: Marc Marquez is already scary …

12.29 Ducati was the big favorite for this weekend, but the start is negative. No bike from the Borgo Panigale team is in the top 10: the best is that of Jorge Martin, 12th. The fall of Francesco Bagnaia does not put us in a good mood.

12.28 The other Italians: Bastianini 14th, Dovizioso 16th, Bagnaia 18th, Marini 20th, Di Giannantonio 22nd, Bezzecchi 24th.

12.26 Checkered flag. FP1 closed with Binder leading with 0.056 on Nakagami, 0.127 on Rins, 0.275 on Pol Espargarò and 0.286 on Marc Marquez. Completing the top 10 are Morbidelli, Mir, Aleix Epsargarò, Alex Marquez and Oliveira. 11th Quartararo.

12.25 Binder in the lead! 1’54 ″ 851: the KTM had not been seen up to now… Hard-average for the South African.

12.24 Amaze Nakagami! The Japanese is in command with the Honda LCR.

12.23 GREAT TOUR OF MORBIDELLI! It is 2nd at only 17 thousandths from Rins. But be careful: the Roman achieved the time trial with hard tires by now worn. Great signal.

12.21 Rins improves: 1’55 ″ 278. 2nd Mir at 0.093. We have two Suzukis in front. However, Rins is fitted with a pair of soft tires.

12.21 Quartararo climbs to seventh place at 0.293, just behind his teammate Morbidelli.

12.20 FALL FOR FRANCESCO BAGNAIA at turn 6. He gets up immediately, but his session ended 5 minutes early.

12.18 Morbidelli sets the best time in the second intermediate, then slows down and gets up.

12.16 Change at the top! Joan Mir, world champion 2022, prints a 1’55 “371, just 7 thousandths better than Aleix Espargarò. Also for the Spaniard a pair of hard tires.

12.16 Bagnaia returns to the track with a pair of hard tires. The best Italian remains Franco Morbidelli, 5th at 0.173. At the moment the French Fabio Quartararo is 10th at 0.539.

12.15 The first Ducati is Jorge Martin’s Pramac, seventh at 0.310: not the start that we would have expected from the Borgo Panigale team.

12.14 Marc Marquez is scary, because the Honda not only has a more powerful engine, but it also seems much easier to drive when entering corners.

12.13 Bagnaia is 15th at 0.778. We must remain calm and wait for FP2.

12.12 Rins climbs to third position at 0.125 from Aleix Espargarò.

12.11 Even Andrea Dovizioso, despite being in an unofficial team, is riding a Yamaha from 2022.

11.35 FP1 will last 45 minutes. FP2 will instead take place at 16.00.

11.32 A three-way race for the title is looming between the reigning French world champion Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha), Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) and the Spaniard Marc Marquez (Honda). Possible outsiders such as Joan Mir (Suzuki) and Australian Jack Miller (Ducati) should not be excluded.

11.30 Speaking of manufacturers , so far three different manufacturers have excelled in Losail. Yamaha boasts 10 claims, including three consecutive with three different men (!) Between 2015 and 2017. Then follows Ducati with 5 wins, while Honda closes at 3 , historically never really at ease on this one. track.

11.25 It should also be noted that Casey Stoner was the only rider able to win on two different bikes . The Australian achieved his first three wins on the Ducati , while the last one was collected on the Honda .

11.20 LUSAIL – TOP CLASS VICTORIES
4 – STONER Casey [AUS] (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011)
4 – ROSSI Valentino [ITA] (2005, 2006, 2010, 2015)
3 – LORENZO Jorge [SPA] (2012, 2013, 2016)
2 – DOVIZIOSO Andrea [ITA] (2018, 2019)
2 – VIÑALES Maverick [SPA] (2017, 2021 Qatar)
1 – GIBERNAU Sete [SPA] (2004)
1 – MARQUEZ Marc [SPA] (2014)
1 – QUARTARARO Fabio [FRA] (2021 Doha)

11.15 There are four active men to boast a victory in Losail in their palmares. Andrea Dovizioso (2018, 2019) and Maverick Viñales (2017, 2021 ) triumphed twice. In addition, Marc Marquez (2014) and Fabio Quartararo (2021) also took places on 1 single occasion.

11.10 The most successful riders in Losail are Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi , both of whom have risen to 4 . The Australian won in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, while the Doctor did so in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2015. As you can see, the centaur native of Southport holds the record of consecutive successes , being the the only one who managed to achieve a three-game winning streak. At the same time, the Italian holds the longevity record , having excelled within a decade.

11.04 The premier class has played 18 races in Losail, one less than the lower categories. This is because in 2020 the competition was canceled due to the rampant Covid-19 pandemic. Moto2 and Moto3 were able to take to the track anyway, as riders and teams were already present on site before the “squeeze” on international travel. It should also be noted how, of the 18 tests sent on stage, “only” 17 had the denomination of GP of Qatar. Last year, in fact, a double header was disputed in order to recover the canceled Argentine GP. Therefore an impromptu Doha Grand Prix was added.

11.00 The stage of the first of the twenty-one acts scheduled for this season will be the Lusail (from this year on, no longer Losail) International Circuit, where the Qatar Grand Prix will be held. The Middle Eastern context has now become usual for the world championship, having entered the calendar back in 2004 . Since 2007 it has assumed the almost fixed role of opening the new competitive year and, since 2008, it can enjoy the status of the only night race of the entire season.

10.56 After 26 years, the World Championship will be the orphan of Valentino Rossi. We will see what the repercussions will be.

Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia ‘s hunt for the iris begins. The Ducati centaur will want to put his weight to the test in alla Rossa, considered by experts to be the best bike of the lot. However, according to what was declared by the Piedmontese driver, the GP22 still needs to be set up properly due to a very powerful engine, but which must be managed a little in terms of power delivery.

On paper, the Qatari track should lend itself well to the characteristics of the Red, given the great accelerations there are. However, there are a lot of contenders for the first stage success.
