The Grand Prix of Qatar, the first round of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship, held on the Lusail International Circuit in Doha did not end well for Francesco Bagnaia, who had a difficult race: slipping fourteenth at the start after starting from the third row, he was forced to a comeback test. Towards the middle of the race Pecco was able to recover up to the tenth position but, in an attempt to overtake Jorge Martín, he crashed hitting the Spaniard too, forcing both of them to retire.
The appointment is in Mandalika where Pecco will be able to fully demonstrate his potential.
“I can’t be happy with how the race went and, first of all, I want to apologize to both Ducati and Jorge because I made a mistake. In the race, unfortunately, I was losing a lot in the first part of the acceleration, and we were not as fast as we usually are. Also, I had some difficulties at the start. Now we’ll have to analyze the data to try to understand what happened and try to come back stronger starting from the next race.”

Positive weekend for Romano Fenati who ended the race at the Losail International Circuit in fifteenth position after starting from the twenty-sixth, managing to reach the target points set: this demonstrates the skill and experience gained by Romano on the track,
“I am very happy with the race. I was able to go fast and have a good pace despite the weekend not starting well. We didn’t give up, we worked and in the end we found the best solution for the race. Already in this morning’s warm up we had made a step forward, and then for the race we added some details that were fundamental. I am really happy with the work we did, and that I gave my best in the race. In Indonesia we will restart from the good work we did this weekend, there is still a lot to work on but we have found a place to start! “
