Motogp Portugal: Bagnaia is already making history, with its first sprint.  Starting grid – bicycles

delight Francis Bagnaia And the desperation of the new partner in Ducati Ennis Bastianini. In the first sprint in MotoGP history, A.J Portimao In Portugal, Ducati rejoiced at the impressive performance of the world champion who snatched the win from Pramac from a frantic Jorge Martin on the last lap, but immediately had to deal with the plight of its new rider who went down in the Borgo Panegal to support the N.P. .1 of the two-wheeled red. The rider from Rimini fractured his right shoulder in a crash at the start of the race and will have to at least miss tomorrow’s Grand Prix, still on the Portuguese track. splash network

The boot is very good Marc Marquez That after the first place, which will give him the possibility to start in front of everyone tomorrow also unlike what happens in Formula 1, he also managed to climb to the podium and fight hard with Miller Ktm and Aprilias of Vinales and Alex Espargaro, fifth and sixth respectively. Miguel Oliveira’s RNF is seventh. Johann Zarco and Alex Marquez are also in the points, with the Gresini rider taking a useful last place. He taunted Fabio Quartararo, tenth, tenteenth behind Marquez Jr. and was hampered at the start of the race by a crash by Joan Mir who touched him causing him to slide back on the grid. Raul Fernandez, Bender, Raines and Morbidelli also suffer from dry mouth. Rounding out the ranking is Nakagami and Di Gianantonio. The day began in Portimão with the fight for the first place held by a Honda driven by Marc Marquez who set a new track record on a Ducati in Bagnaia. A closed front row will be opened by the Spaniard, for the third time, by his compatriot Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing). Fourth time local idol Miguel Oliveira (RNF Team) scores first Aprilia ahead of Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM). 2022 Vice World Champion Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha) was only 11th, nearly 7-tenths off Marquez’s record, which was up from Q1.

But in the meantime he’s already a world champion, smiling and celebrating Bagnaia For a good start to the season:She was very funny, even if it is difficult due to headwinds. The race was very long, I managed it and then pushed it in the second part of the sprint – “Pecco” first words after winning the sprint – I thought it was shorter – adds Bagnaia – but in the end it lasted a long time. In the end, I enjoyed it.”

From the joy of the Torino rider to the grief over the knockout of his team-mate, who crashed during the sprint after being run over by Luca Marini’s bike, he will miss tomorrow’s race and possibly the next too: “Tests showed a fracture of the right scapula – They are taking him to Portimao hospital for further examinations.We need to understand if the fracture is compound or displaced..He will definitely miss tomorrow’s race here in Portimao.I’m afraid he may also be out for the Argentine Grand Championship next week.I hope he can recover for The United States Grand Prix, given that Enea in Texas can win the race, but we still want to be positive for Argentina.”
