PROMOTED AND BOCCIATI ARGENTINA GP MOTOGP 2022

PROMOTED

Aleix Espargarò: after 283 races and 18 years in the World Championship, the Catalan finally climbs to the top step of the podium and does so as the dominator, also hitting the pole position and the fastest lap of the race. The 32-year-old native of Granollers gives Aprilia its first triumph in the premier class and is sensationally leading the championship after three GPs.

Jorge Martin: extremely solid weekend, with a second place in qualifying and a place of honor in the race behind an Aprilia in great shape. The young Spaniard from Ducati Pramac is also relaunching in the world championship after two unlucky GPs at the start of the season.

Suzuki: sixth and seventh place in Qatar, fifth and sixth in Indonesia, third and fourth in Argentina. Positive trend that continues thanks to a versatile and competitive GSX-RR on every track, which allows Rins and Mir to express themselves at an excellent level, especially on Sunday during the race. To aim for the title, however, we need a qualitative leap in qualifying.

Francesco Bagnaia: after a disastrous Saturday, he finally finds a good feeling with his GP22 during the warm-up and manages to make a good comeback from 13th to 5th place in the race. The results are not as expected yet, but the World Championship is still without a master and therefore there is time to definitively unlock the potential of the new Ducati.

FOOD

Fabio Quartararo: the real big disappointment on Sunday in Termas de Rio Hondo. He starts 6th on the grid but after a few laps he is even out of the top 10, then finds a decent pace and comes back up to the final eighth place thanks to some crashes. Yamaha is too erratic in this start of the World Championship, even if the Diablo despite everything is only 10 points behind the championship lead.

Enea Bastianini: extremely negative weekend in Argentina. In great difficulty on Saturday, as he had already accustomed us in his rookie season, but this time he was unable to make a difference even in the race with his usual tire management. He closes 10th, scoring a few points that earned him third position in the World Championship.

Jack Miller: 14th on the grid (following the penalty), 14th at the finish. A colorless race for the Australian of the Ducati Factory, who does not find the right feeling driving his GP22 accusing an abysmal gap towards his teammate Bagnaia and the first Ducati rider in the standings, Jorge Martin.
