Espargaro thought he was done…with one lap to go.
Fabio Quartararo swept the MotoGP race in Barcelona. A mistake by Alex, who finished fifth by mistake. Jorge Martí second bat.
Logically, Marc Márquez was not there, having had a fourth operation on his right arm. In his stands, fans made it clear with their banners: “You will come back stronger”. He was replaced by Brad. Ducati’s Michele Pirro also rode it.
The temperature is very high: 30 degrees in air, 55 degrees in asphalt. For this reason, some riders put hard tires on the rear wheel, like Pol, Zarco or Brad Binder. Most of them use medium tires.
Quartararo passed Aleix at the end of the straight.
But there are multiple encounters with Rins, Bagnaia and Nakagami behind it. It was the Japanese who fell and hit Alex. Another thing between the two, like at Mugello, the Spaniard said: “He is the dirtiest on the pitch”. Peco fell…after the Japanese’s head hit the Italian’s rear tire. Race control decided it was a race accident.
Soon, Bradl kissed the pitch. He couldn’t even test parts or collect data for Honda.
Quartararo leads the way. Jorge Martin stayed behind his friend Alex until he passed him. Zarco was fourth. An unexpected Pole, he started well and finished fifth before Mill passed him. But Joan succeeded with the yellow flag and lost a position.
Marco Bezzecchi was involved in an accident at Turn 10.
Mir left Marini behind, but far from Zarco. Pol Espargaro walked backwards. Honda wasn’t even close to the “top ten.”
Bastianini was seventh in Viñales and fell at Turn 5. His world title is complicated. Bad day in Italy.
Bad for Gresini, as Di Giannatonio fell.
With 15 laps left, Alex passed Martin at the end of the straight. He trailed Quartararo by more than three seconds.
Álex Márquez, the last to start and set back, made a stunning comeback. He is already tenth and the best Honda.
The Diablo kept widening the gap on his favorite track with a clear lead. He is nice, stable and a scooter.
Instead of abandoning Martin, Alex is hunted by the Spaniards. Zarco watched the duel behind him, trying to grab something.
Jorge copied the Granollers’ pass at Turn 1 and moved up to second.
Dovizioso retires due to tire problems. This puts Raul Fernandez in 15th place. He is looking for his first point at the World Championships.
With four laps to go, Alex Martin overtook again at the end of the straight. Every position is very important for the World Cup.
Fabio has received support and support from many fans from the south of France in the stands recently and he is popular. Aleix advanced a few meters towards Martinator.
Alex Espargaro made a amazing mistake.
He thought it was all over and saluted after crossing the finish line…but there was one more lap to go. He realized when he had been overtaken by several drivers. He finished fifth. huge. What a blow to the champion. The Catalonia sank. Even Ezpeleta comforted him in tears. His family and Aprilia’s family applauded him. He fell from 13 to 22 points from the top of the standings. This is incredible.
