The Losail International Circuit is about to launch the 2022 MotoGP World Championship . The 74th edition of the world championship dedicated to two wheels will start today from Qatar , which has now become the privileged stage to begin the new competitive year. It will be a particular race, because for the first time in over a quarter of a century we will not see Valentino Rossi on the track, who has decided to hang up his helmet. In any case, the figure of the Doctor could still be present throughout the year.
After all, the reigning MotoGP World Champion is Fabio Quartararo . The Frenchman, close to turning 23, dreams of winning another title. Well, the last Yamaha centaur capable of ringing two World Championships in a row was Valentino Rossi, in the two-year period 2008-2009 . Since then, the Iwata House has confiscated four other irises, but never managed to harpoon them consecutively (2010, 2012, 2015, 2021).
Even without the champion from Tavullia, there will be 7 Italians at the start of the new MotoGP season. The most awaited is undoubtedly Francesco Bagnaia , Ducati ‘s spearhead. The Borgo Panigale company will also be able to count on Enea Bastianini and Luca Marini , as well as Marco Bezzecchi and Fabio Di Giannantonio , in their first year in the premier class. Furthermore, we must not forget how Franco Morbidelli will be Quartararo’s box mate and will therefore in turn be equipped with an official Yamaha. Finally Andrea Dovizioso , at the age of 36, is looking for the swan song on a Team WithU M1. In short, there are many good reasons to follow the Qatar GP on TV . Not only of MotoGP, but also of Moto2 and Moto3 . How?
