4 winners in 5 races with 3 who had never won

The "it seems that nobody wants to win" of Márquez prior to the Styrian GP was reaffirmed with the victory of Oliveira, another that opens this year as before Quartararo and Binder.

That MotoGP is strange this season is something that was confirmed from the GP of the Czech Republic, where KTM achieved its first victory in the queen class and did it in addition to the hand of a rookie, a Brad Binder who made his debut on the podium for the big door, with victory. Without Marc Márquez on the track, because he was convalescing from Jerez from the fracture in the humerus of the right arm, there is no clear reference and another proof of this is that there have been four different winners in only five races, and three of them have been riders who had never won in MotoGP.

In addition to the aforementioned case of Binder, there is also the very recent Miguel Oliveira, who premiered yesterday, and that of Fabio Quartararo, who opened his box of victories with that of the Spanish GP, to repeat the following Sunday at the Andalusian GP. And this list can be expanded because, apparently at the Red Bull Ring, Joan Mir is also ready to win at any moment, with a second in the first race and a fourth in the second, which would have been a victory had the race not appeared. red flag, when he was leading in the seventeenth lap. And the same can be said of Pol Espargaró, who fought for the victory with Jack Miller until the last corner and, from the fight between the two, the Portuguese benefited.

By the way, Pol was put in the last step by goal "+0" over Miller instead of +0.2, which was the real difference, and that made him close the door more than necessary in Turn 3 and leave opened from it, which made Miller regain the disadvantage that was leading him and could later put the wheel on him.Returning to how strange the championship is, the "it seems that nobody wants to win" the title of Márquez before the fifth race of the year was reaffirmed with the surprising victory of Oliveira, but also with the disappointing races of Quartararo and Andrea Dovizioso, the first two overall. The Frenchman could only be thirteenth and the Italian did not take advantage of the opportunity to take the lead. In the same scenario in which he had won last Sunday, Ducati's could only be fifth and the cut in points was eight, which means he remains second, now three points behind the first. Better three than eleven, of course, but it was a missed opportunity to take the lead before traveling in September to Misano, where the Yamaha should react and resemble those of Jerez, where they signed two doubles with Quartararo and Maverick Viñales.
