Sunday April 4h was not only Easter day but also the second MotoGP of Season 2021 – in Losail, Qatar.
After a Saturday full of emotion and surprise, Pramac riders - supported by Accossato - Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco conquered position 1 and 2 of the starting grid for Sunday’s race.
It must be noted that this was the second race of Jorge’s career in MotoGP.
He started first and kept the control over the rest of the group for 18 laps.
Zarco started second, then fought fiercely mainly against Yamaha riders Viñales and Quartararo for the whole race. Over the last laps, we have witnessed both Pramac Racing riders determined more than ever to take the podium.
The race finished with Zarco second and Jorge Martin third.
Amazing, but it’s not all. Zarco is now leading the rank of the championship after two second positions in Qatar.
Martin, after two races made it to the podium and in an interview, he admitted “I have intentionally braked during the last lap to guarantee Johann the second position, he’s racing to conquer the world championship and he deserves that”.
Hats off to Jorge.
Sic58 Squadra Corse riders, finished successfully their race with a 12th position of Suzuki and a 20th of Fellon.
Until next time – see you in Portugal!
