Maverick Vinales set the fastest time (1:39.207) of the first free practice in Argentina. Teammate Aleix Espargaro managed to get the closest to him with second place. https://twitter.com/MotoGP/status/1641812209671057409?t=RFSJnbw2u9pjVZZ-uMpquQ&s=19 Third time was set by Jorge Martin ahead of Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Marquez. Johann Zarco finished in sixth place ahead of Luco Marini and Franco Morbidelli, who this time was somewhat surprisingly better than teammate Fabio Quartararo. The Frenchman only set the fifteenth time and is thus in danger of appearing in a slower qualifying group, as rain is forecast for the second training session. https://twitter.com/MotoGP/status/1641810852629061632?t=sXEIGNbqdNwhdFzJGfUH-g&s=19 Ten are behind
Alex Rins took the points at the Portuguese Grand Prix but said at the end of the race weekend that he wanted something new on the bike, as he was very annoyed by the difficult overtaking on the current Honda bike. "the hardest part is the overtaking," he explained. "I'm angry, because apart from the start I couldn't overtake any racer. It was a real crash. When Fabio overtook me, I was able to follow him, but I had a lot of problems. In the last part of the race I was losing grip on the front tire. I gave everything from myself and riding at the limit of the engine. The position reminds me of the season at Suzuki where I was losing on the straights and then made up for it in the corners. I would be very happy if Honda offered me something new in Argentina. The track might be more for us suited, but there are also long straights," he added
Francesco Bagnaia apologized to the judges at the Argentine Grand Prix for braking on the plane and avoided punishment. The Ducati racer was looking for a free path on the track in the second free practice, as he wanted to set up a fast lap that would ensure him a direct place in the second part of the qualifications. But the Italian caught up with a few rivals in the last part of the lap, which visibly angered him, and then he slowed down between the thirteenth and fourteenth turns to allow the racing train to pass. Bagnaia eventually landed in the first part of the qualifiers, where the fight for the cities also ended. He will start the race from thirteenth place after escaping punishment after talking to the judges. https://twitter.com/MotoGP/status/1510342887187353602 "I would like to apologize to the other racers," Bagnaia said. "But when you're nervous, d
Only a day after it was announced that the Argentine test would host the start of the season for MotoGP class racers, only this one was postponed due to the virus. The outbreak of Coronavirus and the associated travel restrictions have already led to the cancellation of the race in Qatar for racers in the elite class, and the race was postponed first to Thailand and then to Austin. However, when it already seemed that we would be able to follow the elite class of motorcycling in April in Argentina, the authorities there took a measure to cancel all sporting events. Dorna announced today that the race in Argentina will be postponed to the November date, on November 22.11.2020, 29.11.2020. According to the previous version of the calendar, the racers would have to compete in Valencia at that time. The finals of the season will be on the program on November XNUMX, XNUMX. All of this, however, means racers
The MotoGP class race calendar has once again undergone an update as a result of Coronavirus. Elite class racers will not start the season in the United States, but in Argentina. The race in Austin, scheduled for 5.4.2020, has thus been postponed to the November date (15.11.2020), which also means that the last race in Valencia will be a week later than originally planned. So we have more than a month to wait to be able to follow the best motorcycle racers in the world again. Date Country Venue March 8 Qatar - Moto2 and Moto3 Losail only April 19 Argentina Termas de Rio Hondo May 3 Spain Jerez May 17 France Le Mans May 31 Italy Mugello June 7 Spain Barcelona June 21 No
The first case of Coronavirus infection was recorded in Buenos Aires, which could also have an impact on the MotoGP class calendar. The spread of Coronavirus has not yet shown signs of failure. The first case of death associated with the new virus is now reported in Argentina as well. It is said to be a 25-year-old man who returned from France on XNUMX February. Just days after his return, however, he was already showing typical symptoms of the disease and was taken to a hospital in the capital, where he was said to have died last night. The matter could thus have a major impact on the organization of the race in Argentina, which a few days ago claimed that the South American test would go according to plan. After more and more questions arose in recent days about the Austin race, it seemed that this very test could be the first
After the race in Argentina, Alex Rins admitted that he has to drive more at the limit in the qualifications in the future, as this segment is supposed to be their weak point. The Spaniard had trouble setting up a quick qualifying time all weekend, which meant dropping out of the first part of qualifying and, with 2017th place, the worst starting position after the 1 race in Aragon. Nevertheless, the story was completely different on Sunday. From the background, he quickly made his way forward and finally settled for fifth place. “We had the same rhythm as in the fourth free practice so under 40:XNUMX, that’s all,” a Suzuki racer replied when asked how he managed such a comeback. "Of course, next time we have to start from a better position if we want to fight for the highest places. We need to improve our kv
Franco Morbidelli accepted the blame for the collision with Maverick Vinales, which left them both without a place. The Yamaha racer tried to overtake Danilo Petrucci in seventh place in the seventh turn when Morbidelli crashed into him from behind. Both riders ended the race prematurely with a fall, while Petrucci managed to avoid it. Morbidelli admitted after the race that he made the mistake due to the excessive speed with which he came into the turn, which was due to the wind of the racers in front of him. "In the last laps I drove at full speed in the desire to reach at least sixth place. I didn't want to overtake anyone in that turn, the excessive speed was due to a double wind. Vinales drove slightly out of the ideal line when overtaken by Petrucci and at the same time someone
Valentino Rossi was thrilled after the race in Argentina where he won second place in the last lap by attacking Andrea Dovoziosa. He commented on his ride with the words “like in his best young years”. While Marc Marquez drove his own at the beginning of the race, we watched the extremely interesting Italian duel between Valentino Rossi and Andrea Dovizios, especially at the end of the race. The Ducati racer held second place for most of the race, but failed to shake off the nine-time world champion, who began to put more and more pressure on him as the race drew to a close. Rossi waited for his chance until the seventh turn of the back lap. Dovizioso had no answer to his maneuver and so the Yamaha racer stepped on the podium for the first time after the race at the Sachsenring. "I know very well
Marc Marquez completely outclassed his rivals in the race in Argentina and led by more than 12 seconds, and after finishing his pace in the last laps and only controlling the advantage, he finished almost ten seconds ahead of everyone. The Honda racer led from the first lap and dictated an incredible pace that rivals could not keep up with, but it was much more evenly matched behind him. There, Valentino Rossi and Andrea Dovizioso alternately led a group of six, at times even eight racers. It was only in the last laps that the Italians broke away from the pursuers and then clashed for the last time in the last lap. With a fantastic overtaking, Rossi managed to overtake Dovizioso and climb to second place. Dovi was left without an answer to the experienced Rossi and had to settle for third place. If
