Marquis, but not just Marquis. The challenge of Bagnaia Quartararo alive is growing. What will Bastianini do? Vinales to confirm the thousand and force Espargaro to the podium
September 15, 2022
JP Aragon, fifteenth round of the season. This track is played for the 14th time on one of the five tracks on the calendar that run counterclockwise. not by chance, She is one of Marc Marquez’s favorites, to which a curve is also assigned, number ten. A track that Honda has admired in the past, winning with Stoner (2011), Pedrosa (2012) and Marquez (2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019). A track especially prized by home riders: Of the 39 GPs contested here in all categories, he triumphed in 25 of one of the many Spanish champions. Here are the top topics on the eve of the Grand Prix.
Marc Marquez is back
eObviously, this is the main argument: 110 days after the last race at Mugello (8th at the finish line), Marquez is back with his Honda RC213V, on the track where he won six times, and won five poles out of the eight races held on this track. eve, The most common question is: what will Mark do, will he be immediately competitive?
Bagnaia, a year later
TIt all began here, in Aragon, when In 2021, Francesco Bagnaiawho started from first place, had a crazy race against Marquez, one of those unforgettable challenges, with Pecco For the first time on top of the podium in MotoGP. After this success, another nine came, of which the last four in a row. So it can be up to five in a row: is it possible or impossible?
Quartararo, still on defense
ePossibly the most indigestible path for a world champion, after finishing second in 2019: “If with my magic wand I can eliminate the GP between now and the end of the championship, I will eliminate Aragon” in Misano. The risk of losing many points is high: we need the best Quartararo this season.
A. Espargaro, mandatory platform
sThe Aprilia rider might be the last chance to really get back in the title raceAfter two races. The best result obtained here by the RS-GP is fourth (in 2021): Now, however, the bike is definitely more competitive. Alex should at least be back on the podium.
Vinales, to confirm
IThe Aprilia rider is now always among the best, but some kind of assurance is expected of him at every race. In the past few competitions, he’s always been more effective than his teammate: he could be instrumental in the challenge for the title. Not just for the Espargaro score.
Bastianini wants victory
DrAfter the good race in Misano, he closed in second place, Enea Bastianini definitely strives for victory, other than the alleged Ducati brand toys. CEO Claudio Domenicali didn’t like his last lap in Misano (“We didn’t like her”): What are you going to do this time? I’m convinced he’ll try if he can.
Morbidly, signs of comfort
nMisano tests, Franco Morbidelli was very fast, which confirms the growth already seen in the San Marino GP, after the score, conditioned on a contact on the first lap. The 2023 chassis goes in Franco’s direction and will be available here in Aragon, where Morbido won in 2020. In short, we can hope for a good performance.
Misano: The unforgettable races (for me)
2013: Gara Moto GP: Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Marquez are so close to the battle for victory, when on lap six, in a left-hand bend, Marquez touches Pedrosa’s arm area of the bike, making the electronic controls cable jump. Once he gives Danny the gas, he flies away, and also plays for title possibility. Vince Marquez
2014: Gara MotoGP: Marquis is in front when it starts raining. Everyone comes back to change bikes, he stays on track with splashes, but the track is too wet for him as he flies away. Lorenzo wins.
2018: Gara MotoGP: Jorge Lorenzo starts from the starting position and is one of the favorites, but in the first corner crashes, according to Jorge due to a mistake by Marc Marquez, who will win the Grand Prix ahead of Dovizioso. In fact, this is the last time Lorenzo competes in his career;
2019: Gara MotoGP: Marc Marquez wins again, but the great champ is Andrea Dovizioso, second after an amazing rebound from 10th. One of Andrea’s most beautiful races. # Thanks
2020: Gara MotoGP: Franco Morbidelli is in great shape and won his second Grand Prix of the season (and in his MotoGP career);
2021: Because of MotoGP: The challenge between Francesco Bagnaia and Marc Marquez is at the highest level, with constant overtaking (or attempts…). Vince Biko: General Practitioner to see and review.
ecco how, after fourteen races, my favorites for a title change: Bagnaia 50%, Quartararo 45%, Espargaro 5%. These are the percentages I gave in #lanotiziainprimafila on Wednesday (You can find it on the site), but after carefully reading the comments of Moto.it readers, I am convinced that it is probably the most correct: Bagnaya 45%, Quarteraro 45%, Espargaro 10%.
