When the sun sets…

As that massive red fireball of the sun dropped below the Qatar desert skyline the wind, sprinkled with sand that you could taste, picked up to signal the start of the season. The last time a reigning World Champion won the opening round of the season was in 2016 when Jorge Lorenzo was victorious in Qatar on the Yamaha. However, in that same MotoGP™ era only two riders have retained their titles the following season. So, what about the newcomers facing the daunting prospect of their first MotoGP™ race. Honda’s last winner in the opening round was Marc Marquez in 2014. In Qatar on Sunday, it is more a case of when the sun drops. MotoGP™ is back in business as the Qatar GP kicks off the 2022 season – with spectacle guaranteed.
