2022 Buriram Moto2 Race Result: More Rainwatch Than Race

Rain was the talk of the paddock all weekend and just like any lead actor, it arrived five minutes before the start of the intermediate class event and caused chaos on the grid. The downpour was initially localised, causing a delay and lots of question marks ahead of the shortened 16-lap race, but then the deluge truly arrived halfway into proceedings and brought out the red flag. Rain halted several attempts to restart the race and race direction eventually had to admit defeat and award a second victory of the season to Tony Arbolino. Filip Salac also thrived in the tricky conditions and was one corner away from victory but still secured his first podium in the intermediate class. Aron Canet befitted from a lightning start and gave himself a late birthday present with a third place podium.

There was tension from start to finish, rain intensifying just as the race got underway and expectations were particularly high with the home hero in pole position. Somkiat Chantra made a good start from the front of the grid and quickly extended a two-second gap at the front but soon ended up being the reason for one of multiple yellow flags early on, going down at turn four on some standing water. Alonso Lopez inherited the lead ahead of a fast-starting Canet, who had gone from 18th on the grid to third by lap two, the two Spaniards having a one second advantage over Jake Dixon and Salac. Ai Ogura made a cautious start in fifth but had Arbolino and Joe Roberts waiting to pounce, while Augusto Fernandez kept pretty quiet at the bottom of the top 10 and teammate Pedro Acosta lost a lot of ground over the opening lap to drop to 13th.

Once riders settled in the tricky conditions, gaps started to close at the front and Canet attacked for the lead on lap four, helped by Lopez running wide at turn five. The mistake also allowed Dixon and Salac to join the party and the duo slid past Lopez next time into turn one. Despite a sluggish start, Arbolino was the quickest man on track in these early stages, the Italian pushing to join the leaders and bringing Ogura with him, leaving Roberts two seconds back.

Back at the front, Salac attacked for the lead at the end of lap five, while a hairy moment for Canet soon dropped him over a second behind. The Spaniard didn’t have much time to compose himself, as Arbolino had already joined the provisional podium positions and attacked Canet one lap later, being left with one second to find over the remaining 10 laps to challenge Salac for victory.

Arbolino didn’t need much time to get that job done, already on the leader’s tail one lap later and attacking the Czech rider at the final corner, helped by Salac running wide. However, he did not enjoy much time in the limelight, as the red flag started waving immediately, calling riders back into pitlane due to the heavy rain and poor visibility.

The intention was to restart the race for a five-lap sprint, but rain kept dropping in at the worst of times, leading to several delays and eventually race cancellation, with half points awarded due to two thirds distance not being completed. With Arbolino, Salac and Canet climbing into a very wet podium, Dixon settled for fourth place ahead of Lopez, with title contenders Ogura and Fernandez in sixth and seventh positions. Roberts, Keminth Kubo and Celestino Vietti rounded out the top 10, with Acosta in a lowly 16th.

At the end of the tense burst of action, Fernandez leaves Thailand with an advantage of one and a half points over Ogura in the world championship standings, with Canet an unsightly 53.5 points behind the leader.

2022 Buriram Moto3 Race Result: Another Taste Of Title Drama

The ever-present threat of rain never materialised for the lightweight class race and we were served a masterclass from Dennis Foggia, the poleman only relinquishing the lead for about two corners on route to claiming his fourth victory of the season. Ayumu Sasaki did his best to change that but eventually had to settle for second, in his third consecutive podium and 10th overall in Moto3. Italy had a particularly good day in Thailand, with Riccardo Rossi climbing on the podium for the first time this season and claiming a beautiful third place trophy.

Foggia had been unrivalled from the start, making a solid launch from pole position, ahead of Sasaki, Stefano Nepa and Diogo Moreira, while David Muñoz made another lightning launch to join the top five by the end of the opening lap. Jaume Masia, Dani Holgado and Rossi weren’t too far behind, with Izan Guevara. After a couple of laps, the eight-man group had stretched the slightest of gaps over the pursuit, which was led by championship leader Izan Guevara, who had made slight progress from 11th on the grid. Teammate and title rival Sergio Garcia was less lucky, becoming the innocent victim of a crash for Adrian Fernandez at the final corner of the opening lap and although Garcia was able to re-join, he eventually retired.

Back at the front, Foggia tried to stretch a gap early on and put a few tenths between himself and the rest of the group led by Sasaki, while the men behind were keeping each other busy - Masia and Muñoz particularly feisty, but with Rossi and Moreira in the mix as well. The frequent exchanges allowed Guevara to briefly bring the sizeable pursuit back into contention, but they quickly dropped back down as Guevara couldn’t really focus on bridging the gap, as he was constantly under threat from Deniz Öncü. Despite starting 18th, Tatsuki Suzuki had also joined the pursuit by this point but had to abandon with a mechanical issue on lap eight.

Despite the frequent movements behind him, Foggia continued unchallenged at the front after the first 10 laps, setting a hot pace that Sasaki, Munoz, Rossi and Moreira could match but it was steadily dropping Masia out of podium contention. However, the Spaniard wasn’t under much threat from behind for the moment, with Guevara and Öncü still engaged in battle almost three seconds back. Part of Guevara’s problem was sorted on lap 13, when Öncü served a long lap penalty for exceeding track limits and dropped to 12th position, although the championship leader still had Nepa, Holgado, Yamanaka and Migno on his tail.

Back at the front, there was a brief change at the end of lap 13, Foggia running wide at turn 12 and allowing Sasaki to lead the way, but the Italian soon resumed control at turn three. The list of rivals was starting to reduce further, Moreira also taking the scenic route at the final corner, which dropped him one second behind the leading foursome of Foggia, Rossi, Sasaki and Muñoz. Two seconds behind the Brazilian rookie, Masia’s sixth place was about to come under fire from the Guevara group and the KTM Ajo rider soon found himself down in 11th position, after almost losing the front at turn five.

Going into the final six laps, Foggia, Rossi and Sasaki had dropped Muñoz two seconds back in the blink of an eye, the Spaniard dropping back towards the second group, where Guevara was challenging Moreira for fifth. Some mistakes started to sneak in for the championship leader over the final couple laps, dropping him to seventh position at one point, but Guevara quickly responded to retake the lead of the chasing group.

Foggia picked up the pace at the end and started the final lap with a handy advantage of over a second, leaving Sasaki to fend off Rossi for the remaining podium positions. Rossi tried an overtake at the final corner but ran wide and Sasaki swiftly reclaimed second. Seven seconds behind the podium men, the fight for fourth was hotting up, with the sizeable pursuit trading places at every turn, but by the time the chequered flag waved, Nepa was ahead of Guevara - the Italian's best result in the world championship - and Migno ahead of Moreira, although a late track limits penalty for Migno demoted him behind Moreira once more. A mistake from Muñoz, running wide at the final corner, dropped him to ninth, while Yamanaka completed the top 10.

Despite missing out on the podium and settling for fifth, Guevara continues to have a comfortable lead in the championship standings, 49 points over victor Foggia, while Garcia’s misfortune drops him to third in the standings, 56 points back.

2022 Buriram MotoGP Qualifying Result: The Magic Ten

The big battle for pole got underway in front of the enthusiastic local crowds and there was sugar, spice and everything nice (but mostly spice) from the very start of Q1. Although it was no surprise to see the Ducatis headlining the show, there was still room for a new record, with the 10th different pole sitter of the season. The honour went to Marco Bezzecchi, the rookie securing a maiden pole position, as well as the all-time lap record at Buriram. Having been a consistent fixture at the top end throughout qualifying, Jorge Martin tried to retaliate and reclaim the lead, but came two hundredths of a second short, while Pecco Bagnaia in third was just a tenth off pole.

Fabio Quartararo was once again confronted with a gaggle of Ducatis and limited the damage with a second-row start, but surrounded by more Bologna bullets, with Johann Zarco and Enea Bastianini joining him on the second row. Jack Miller was a frontrunner early on, but an issue on his second outing saw him return to pitlane without posting another fast lap and the Australian got demoted to seventh on the grid. After spicing things up in Q1, Marc Marquez had to make it work with only one fresh soft tyre left and the Honda man was on course for a front row when a moment at the final corner slowed him down and only gained him eighth place on the grid. Luca Marini’s solid weekend continues with a third row start, about half a second behind his leading teammate. Alex Rins opens row four for Suzuki, ahead of the factory KTM machines, with Miguel Oliveira escaping Q1 to then finish ahead of teammate Brad Binder.

The big heartache in Q1 was Aleix Espargaro having to admit defeat by a tenth of a second and equalling his worst qualifying of the season in 13th position. The Aprilia man will share fifth row with the improving Yamaha duo of Franco Morbidelli and Cal Crutchlow, while Raul Fernandez impressed in 16th position, having missed FP3 due to a stomach ache. Much less impressed was Maverick Viñales, who spent almost as much time off track as he did between the white lines and finished a disgruntled 17th on the grid, in between the Tech 3 machines of Fernandez and Remy Gardner.

2022 Buriram MotoGP FP4 Result: Zarco Leads The Ducati Show

The final practice session of the premier class was yet another opportunity for the Ducatis to show off, with Johann Zarco back at the helm, ahead of Motegi winner Jack Miller and the ever-impressive Marco Bezzecchi. Brad Binder was also in the mix, posting an identical time to Jorge Martin – the two completing the top five of the session, covered by two tenths of a second. Another half a tenth behind was the somewhat unexpected Yamaha battle, with Franco Morbidelli finishing just ahead of Fabio Quartararo, for the first time in quite a while. Alex Rins added a Suzuki to the top eighth, ahead of Enea Bastianini and Miguel Oliveira – the top 10 covered by less than four tenths of a second.

Another impressive performance in FP4 was that of Cal Crutchlow, Yamaha’s test rider still showing some good speed and pace from 11th position, while Marc Marquez rested for a good part of the session, before doing a solid run on used rubber and claiming 12th position. Pecco Bagnaia, Aleix Espargaro and Luca Marini rounded out the top 15, while Maverick Viñales continued to look particularly unimpressed down in 16th, eight tenths of a second off the lead.

2022 Buriram Moto2 Qualifying Result: The Makings Of A Fairy Tale

Even the sun came out to spectate the qualifying battle for the intermediate class and, to the delight of the home crowd, Somkiat Chantra secured a first career pole position on his favourite playground. The Thai rider started off with a sizeable advantage while yellow flags halted his rivals for a while, but Tony Arbolino eventually closed the gap to only eight hundredths of a second. The Italian will be surrounded by the Honda Team Asia duo on the front row of the grid, with Ai Ogura climbing into third, two tenths off pole.

Fresh off the announcement that he’s staying with the Ajo squad next year, Pedro Acosta secured a solid fourth place, while Celestino Vietti picked up the pace to cruise through Q1 and claim fifth on the grid. Alonso Lopez joins them on the second row, while Jake Dixon opens row three, ahead of championship leader Augusto Fernandez and compatriot Jorge Navarro. Having had to miss the previous race due to injury, Manuel Gonzalez making the top 10 was all the more impressive, sharing row four with Cameron Beaubier and Filip Salac.

Q1 escapee Bo Bendsneyder leads the way on row five, ahead of Jeremy Alcoba and with Albert Arenas much less celebratory of his new contract with the Ajo team, the Spaniard dropping to 15th after a scary tangle with Joe Roberts early in Q2. The American was slow on his feet but looked generally unharmed and will have to start down on row six, in between local favourite Keminth Kubo and the unlucky Aron Canet, who crashed before posting a time. Meanwhile, the returning Sam Lowes missed out on Q2 by only one hundredth of a second and will be starting 19th on the grid, ahead of Lorenzo Dalla Porta and Fermín Aldeguer.

2022 Buriram Moto3 Qualifying Result: In A League Of His Own

Perfect conditions with a hint of blue sky set the scene for the first qualifying battle of the day and pole position had a hint of sky blue as well, with Dennis Foggia dominating Q2 by almost three tenths of a second and securing another all time lap record. Best of the rest was Jaume Masia, who left it late to post a fast time but eventually made his return onto the front row of the grid in second position. Ayumu Sasaki continues his impressive run of results by completing the front row of the grid for tomorrow’s race.

Speaking of solid results, Stefano Nepa secures fourth, as the final rider to post a time within half a second of the poleman, while rookies Diogo Moreira and Dani Holgado complete the second row on their first visit to Buriram. Riccardo Rossi opens row three ahead of John McPhee and Ryusei Yamanaka, with Q1 graduate David Muñoz completing the top 10 positions.

The championship leader had a tricky Saturday in Thailand, Izan Guevara having to go through Q1 before settling for 11th position, in the middle of fourth row, ahead of Joel Kelso. Fellow Q1 escapees Taiyo Furusato and Lorenzo Fellon sandwich Andrea Migno on row five, with Deniz Öncü, Kaito Toba and Tatsuki Suzuki making up a rather underwhelming row six. On the topic of underwhelming performances, Sergio Garcia will be the first to admit that these couple of days in Thailand were not his best work, the Spaniard stuck in Q1 and having to start the race from the middle of seventh row, in between Adrian Fernandez and Elia Bartolini.

2022 Buriram MotoGP FP3 Result: Martin Leads, Marquez Misses Out

Another fully dry session in Thailand sparked a few surprises throughout the field, the men quickest in pace not necessarily quickest over one lap. After Luca Marini and Marc Marquez stole the show early on, trading places at the top and showing off with their rhythm, it was Jorge Martin’s turn to claim the top of the pile in the final shootout, after starting the session in the gravel. The Pramac man was trailed by colleague Jack Miller by only one hundredth of a second, the Australian’s session also ending with a slight tumble. Meanwhile, Fabio Quartararo endured a few moments here and there on his way to third, with Brad Binder making a late impression on the timesheets to claim fourth.

Alex Rins in fifth was two tenths off top spot, while Johann Zarco was sixth in the session but third overall, courtesy of his Friday-topping time. Enea Bastianini did not seem to be having much fun throughout the session but found some late speed to climb into seventh position, ahead of teammates Marco Bezzecchi and Marini. Although Pecco Bagnaia was an underwhelming 17th in the morning session, the Italian’s benchmark from Friday was enough to keep him inside the combined top 10.

Meanwhile, a mix of traffic and mistakes left Marc Marquez 11th in the closing stages of FP3, the Honda man missing out on Q2 by only seven thousandths of a second and being only three tenths off top spot. He will be in familiar company in Q1, however, with compatriots Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales continuing their struggle on the Aprilia – Top Gun quite evidently unhappy throughout the session and finishing almost a second down.
