It was a weekend of emotion during MotoGP’s penultimate race of the season in Qatar, and none showed that more than Fabio Di Giannantonio, who after finishing 2nd in the Sprint, would beat Francesco Bagnaia straight up in an intense fight for his first Grand Prix victory in the top flight, even after Pecco nearly wrecked himself in retaliation! But can Diggia save his spot on the grid as a result? Is it Fermin Aldeguer or someone else altogether?
We also talk about Jorge Martin getting a dud rear tyre at the worst possible time after a 10th-place mark could very well be the end of his title campaign. Is Michelin to blame, Martin, or somewhere in the middle?
We also talk about the Aleix Espargaro vs Frankie Morbidelli fight as Aleix laid some hands on Franky after a dispute over dawdling on the racing line. Finally, the Moto3 title decider got ugly as Jaume Masia and teammate Adrian Fernandez staged a coup on the title as Ayumu Sasaki was borderline intentionally taken off the racing line in the middle of the race. Legal? Unsportsmanlike? Or worse?
All that with Ryan King sticking around in a loaded Motorsport101!
