MotoGP 2022. Thoughts, questions and considerations after the Aragon GP – MotoGP

Zam analysis at the end of the Aragon Weekend

September 18 2022

What are the keys to a GP?

  1. Marquez’s departure. Ironically, he started very well: had he started worse when the traffic lights went out, the race would have been very different;

  2. Quarteraro’s departure. On the contrary, Fabio did not get off to a good start, immediately losing important positions;

  3. ducati speed. Here, the straight-line difference with the other bikes was more noticeable than usual;

  4. Great Tranquility in Bastianini. Aware of being faster, Enea wasn’t “crazy”, not even in critical overtaking;

  5. Title idea. Bagnaia, on the last lap, did not go out of his way to keep up with his opponent, because, he said, the risks would have outweighed the advantages;

  6. Overtaking by Espargaro. In a class that is never easy to overtake, Alex Espargaro asserts himself as a very stubborn driver, always trying.

questions and answers

IWhat is the position of Marinette and Reigns at the end of the first lap?

Marini VIII (beginning of the fourteenth); Rinse 16 (starting at nine).

Did the race stop with a red flag?

In my opinion, yes: As Bajnaya said, when the drivers on lap two went through the two first lap accident points, there were many pieces on the track. dangerous.

Is there anyone who thinks Marquis is wrong?

yes. Johann Zarco: “Marquez has exaggerated, the reduction device is an excuse not to take all the blame”

2. Acosta’s victory in Moto2;

3. The Marquez / Quartararo Accident

Three sentences of GP

1. Bagnaia: “This race closes many mouths: after Misano I heard a lot of nonsense”

2. Zarco: “It is the word of the Marquis against mine: perhaps, since he is stronger, his word is worth more than mine”;

3. Dall’Igna: “Five more points were important, but Bastianini deserved to win.”
