MotoGP Silverstone FP2 LIVE : Fabio Quartararo s'impose, Godzilla arrive... - Paddock GP

That’s it, the MotoGP world championship is coming out of its summer lethargy due to the cancellation of the Finnish Grand Prix to make us gasp again in front of the best riders in the world in search of the supreme title!

And what more could you ask for than a confrontation with an uncertain outcome, fabio quartararo leading by just 21 points ahead of a Alex Espargaro in full positive spiral on his Aprilia RS-GP?

The icing on the cake happens at Silverstone, the site of Noale’s first podium in MotoGP, and to make matters even more interesting, the competent authorities judged thatThe devil he misbehaved in delaying his main opponent Assen and thus handed out a long lap penalty at Silverstone that is controversial to say the least. However, we know the winning tactic of the French rider, that is, take the lead as quickly as possible and escape so as not to be blocked behind an opponent who is difficult to overtake with the power that the Yamaha YZR-M1 has at its disposal. .

There, with the Long Lap to be done at the start of the race at Turn 14, it seems certain that the reigning Silverstone winner, Fabio Quartararo, will not be able to apply his winning strategy and therefore opens the door to a possible good raise ofAlex Espargaro in the general classification! Let’s see if the 3 laps rule gets a fix…

Other topics of interest are not lacking, starting with johann zarco, third in the championship and even the best Ducati rider, although this time he was not invited to the official press conference. Why ? Even Pramac’s communication department could not give us an answer…
Perhaps because more potential is given to francesco bagnaia4th in the general classification despite 4 white results and thanks to 3 wins, in the genre ” hit or miss “, versus the French Diesel who currently sits on the second step of the podium and has no lasting memories of Silverstone in MotoGP (Autumn 2019, 11th in 2021). Last year, the summer break was not beneficial for the French driver: will it be the opposite in 2022? We wish you!
