It begins! The MotoGP race will resume from 4 to 6 March . From Losail (Qatar) , as usual, everything will begin and emotions will certainly not be lacking.
In MotoGP we are preparing for a particular season, the first without Valentino Rossi at the start . The champion from Tavullia, as is well known, left the category to try his hand at car races after having given a lot to the category. A very balanced GP is expected with the Ducatis who will want to make the big voice . The layout, in fact, should smile at the GP22 which with Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia and Jack Miller has great ambitions, recalling the constructors’ title of 2021.
They will try to counter the progress of the Red Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Aprilia and KTM . On the Tokyo bike we will find a Marc Marquez who, although not 100% fit for his physical problems, is always extremely dangerous and eager to do well. In addition, the Japanese bike during the tests has shown to be in sharp growth compared to the recent past and this could make the difference.
Different speech regarding the team of the 2021 world champion Fabio Quartararo . The Frenchman, in pre-season tests, often complained about the lack of power of the new M1 and on a track like that of Losail it could be an additional difficulty. The transalpine and also Franco Morbidelli in the Factory Team are confident in a technical reaction, as well as Andrea Dovizioso who has returned to full capacity in the premier class after a 2021 “taste” to represent the new WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team.
In Italy there will also be the Mooney VR46 Racing Team, a team managed by the Valentino Rossi group, with Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi riding two Ducatis; Enea Bastianini and Fabio Di Giannantonio in the Gresini Racing MotoGP always on two Reds
