MotoGP – Thailand Grand Prix: Nightmare: Quartararo, 17th, leads by just two points over Bagnaya

The sky of Buriram overtook Quarteraro. Pecco Bagnaia (Ducati) can be cheerful. The Piedmontese had the perfect operation on Sunday at the Grand Prix of Thailand. After a start-up was delayed by an hour due to rain, the driver from Bologna broke through an unexpected platform on a wet (third) track. Bagnaia especially benefited from the misfortunes of Fabio Quartararo (factory Yamaha), a hard 17. The gap has now been reduced to two small units between the first two units in the tournament. The win went to Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM), winner against another ace of changing conditions, Jack Miller (Ducati). Johann Zarko (Prima Pramac) made a supersonic finish for the race (fourth) but didn’t want to take any risks at the Bajnaya wheel.

Quartararo is completely out of the game (and the points)

Like the air of a mandala. This time, no priestess came to dispel the thick fog and torrential rain that hit the Buriram path. As in Indonesia, the race was delayed for a long time, to start about an hour later than scheduled. Confident before the start despite questions about his grip, Fabio Quartararo was a terrifying race. Composer of a failed take-off and a push back from the first lap of points (17), Nesswa drove with fear in his stomach, his muscles tightened by wet asphalt and heavy pressure four rounds into the end of the season.

El Diablo’s long cross stops finished in the same position, after a few retirements and overtakes suffered in the back of the pack. In a place he appreciated (podium and podium in 2019), the world champion was unrecognizable and did not enter the points. As a result, Pecco sees Bagnaia approaching two short lengths in the ranking, while conditions should theoretically favor the Frenchman’s variety. The setback is violent and the tournament has been completely re-launched.

Bagnaia Zarko can thank

Much earlier, Pecco Bagnaia only had to secure an almost unexpected podium in light of the lack of confidence that Torinese has shown this season as the ball rains down on the ball. Bagnaia didn’t hamper his work, he patiently built his race, under the untouchable duo of Oliveira Miller on Sunday. The Portuguese also won (5th win in MotoGP) with the racing style he loves. Last week’s winner in Japan, Jack Miller in his quest for a double, failed sec.

Behind the changing conditions specialists Bagnaya thought he had to endure a heavy, exhausting finish to the race, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) gradually returned to his exhaust. Starting from a very far distance, Johann Zarko gave himself a supersonic finish to the race, setting record times during the laps. In an excellent position to play on the podium, or even more so, the Cannes resident stopped curiously in the middle of the journey, no doubt guided by the common instructions of the Ducati factory.

Borgo Panigale is keen to crown Bagnaia and Zarco’s (fourth) nod goes in that direction, even if it means giving up a 16th podium in the Queen class. Fifthly, Marc Marquez noticed this with a vigilant eye, confirming his return to form. The other world title thief, Alex Espargaro (Aprilia), had a long lap but fought back to snatch a few points (11) and come back within 20 minutes of Quartararo in the championship. Three rounds from the end, total suspense.
