MotoGP increases the number of aspirants to victory

The Qatar GP has left one of the tightest starts of recent years in the queen class, despite the final battle between Dovizioso and Márquez.

Ganar, is it just a matter of two in MotoGP? If you look at the final table of 2018 and the Qatar results come out the accounts. Dovizioso and Márquez are first and second, second and first ... Those are the names that occupy the first positions although, nevertheless, the classification of the GP of Qatar left a reading that shows how there is life beyond those two pilots. The Losail floodlights inaugurated a season that makes you want more. After 22 laps the first 5 positions were separated by only 600 thousandths but even more than five were invited to the victory party.

The preseason already hinted at what was to come. On the layout of Losail , the results of the last test day compacted the first 15 pilots in less than a second but in terms of pace, it is true that they wrote their own names that, in the inaugural meeting, showed why they were in the spotlight . Without a thief, when that had not yet been proven, some already anticipated what happened on Sunday. The level of competitiveness has increased in 2019 and Valentino Rossi said that this is "the strongest World" he has witnessed. If you look at the numbers, for now, do not make mistakes.

There are four bikes with the possibility of winning but in Actually, they are more. Honda, Ducati, Yamaha and Suzuki are the favorites and we must bear in mind that, the first three brands, have satellite equipment that also aspire to everything. The clearest example was that of a Cal Crutchlow that in Losail fulfilled the role of a Jorge Lorenzo who opened the season with the worst possible result since he reached the queen class. The golden wing brand had two bikes on the podium, but one of them was that of its subsidiary. In addition, Miller and Bagnaia were also part of a small train that trained up to ten pilots with options of everything, even though the Pramac Racing pilots were erased too soon from a party in which, at least, it consisted their presence.

the pace that was imposed during the beginning of the test made it feasible that so many pilots fought for the first places and rolled in such small distances, but in classification, with the knife between the teeth, except for Aleix all the pilots who passed through Q2 they closed their time within the same second. In the race the final was less disputed since they were the ones who always wrote the end of the story. Divizioso and Márquez finished it in the same way they did a year ago but now, "MotoGP is different from the past" .

A so the Ducati rider sees it. Lejos remains to leave, take the head and say goodbye with an insurmountable distance that no one aspires. Maverick Viñales started from the pole with that intention but it was clear, in a weekend where the Yamaha returned to reality, that the victory it is not given away and "this year will be harder for everyone". Although the strategy of the Desmosedici man was almost perfect, the Italian is convinced that his performance will not be enough to achieve the World Cup if you also take into account young promises, who have already presented themselves as aspirants. Everyone wants to win and in the doubt who will be able to achieve it, the answer will come on the asphalt.
