2022 Buriram MotoGP Race Result: Rain Throws A Spanner In The Works

Sunday’s action in Thailand got underway with the premier class not having done one single lap in wet conditions, so it only made sense that a downpour would wreak havoc in Moto2 and leave MotoGP in a bit of a pickle. Riders were still drinking coffee in their teamwear by the time the race was supposed to get underway, proceedings delayed until conditions allowed for a more sensible opening lap. Not that the premier class grid is able to do sensible, as demonstrated an hour later, when the race finally got underway to a backdrop of lightning bolts – but more reasonable levels of rain. At the end of 25 tricky laps on a drying track, Miguel Oliveira claimed his second victory of the season, ahead of fellow rain shaman Jack Miller, while Pecco Bagnaia overcame recent wet weather woes and the oopsie in Motegi to return to the podium in third place.

The start of the race was a very different story, with poleman Marco Bezzecchi making a good start, only to run wide at the first corner and invite a slight nudge from Jorge Martin. Both Ducati riders took to the run-off but Martin was off worse, losing a few positions, while Bezzecchi opted to shortcut the track and resume control of proceedings. Meanwhile, Miller, Marc Marquez and Luca Marini had launched from the third row of the grid straight into the top six, followed by Oliveira, Enea Bastianini, Johann Zarco and Brad Binder in the early top 10. Having started 13th, Aleix Espargaro progressed a couple of places early on, knocking on the doors of the top 10, while teammate Maverick Viñales lost a lot of ground at the start and dropped down to 22nd position. The expectation that Fabio Quartararo would be the one taking on the Ducati armada was quickly shattered, as the Frenchman was another of the victims of turn one, where he found himself on out outside of Miller and guided off track, followed by a few more mistakes that dropped him all the way down to 17th position by the end of the opening lap.

Back at the front, Bezzecchi had stretched a one second gap over the first lap but was soon prompted to drop one position for gaining some of that advantage off track. By the time the rookie saw the message, Miller was the beneficiary of that penalty, having gotten past Bagnaia on lap three. The chasing group now led by Oliveira was seven tenths back, including Martin, Marini and Marc Marquez, with Zarco not too far back and a fast-starting Alex Marquez leading the next group one second behind.

Miller got handed the lead at the start of lap four, Bezzecchi slotting back into second position ahead of Bagnaia, while teammate Marini suffered an uncharacteristic crash out of fifth. Having lost one challenger, Oliveira was soon attacking Bagnaia for third, with Marquez fending off Martin, Zarco and the other Marquez. As for the rest of the title contenders, Bastianini was another second back in ninth, Espargaro kept steady in 11th position and Quartararo struggled to recover any places early on.

Miller carried on untroubled at the front until Oliveira became his main challenger on lap six, the KTM rider being the fastest man on track at that stage. An unsettled Bezzecchi soon allowed Bagnaia and Marquez past, although the trio had dropped over a second behind the two leaders and never truly recovered that. There was a threat from behind as well, where Alex Marquez was harassing the Pramac riders for sixth position. Bastianini and Espargaro were still inside the top ten, but the Spaniard was soon slapped with a long lap penalty for an earlier tangle with Binder, which had lost the South African some good ground. The sanction dropped Espargaro down to 14th position, behind teammate Viñales, who was slowly starting to pick up the pace. While Espargaro was still inside point-scoring positions, things went from bad to worse for Quartararo, who had dropped to 19th by lap 10.

Back ahead, Oliveira first attacked with 18 laps to go but it was short lived, and Miller resumed control of proceedings, the duo further dropping Bagnaia and Marquez two seconds back. Meanwhile, baby Marquez had ditched Zarco, Martin and a fading Bezzecchi into Bastianini’s clutches and seemed keen to catch up and spend some more time with his older brother.

At the halfway point of the race, Miller and Oliveira were holding station at the front, although the KTM man was still sniffing around for an opportunity. With Bagnaia and the Marquez brothers not within reach of each other at this stage, eyes were on Binder and Espargaro, who were trading places once again, while charging towards the top 10. Poleman Bezzecchi continued his decline, down to 16th at that stage, while Quartararo was going nowhere down in 18th.

Oliveira finally made a move stick at the end of lap 14, taking over the lead of the race and fending off Miller’s attempts to retaliate. Bagnaia and Marquez were not fully out of victory contention with 10 laps remaining, the Italian’s gap to the leaders down to one and a half seconds, however, much of the progress was down to Miller losing touch with Oliveira, the KTM putting one second’s worth of asphalt between itself and the Ducati within a couple of laps. Although Miller was relatively within reach, Bagnaia had trouble brewing from behind, with Marc Marquez glued to his rear wheel with eight laps remaining. The Honda man bided his time to actually make a move, but got a hurry-up from Zarco, the fastest man on track at that late stage of the race. The Frenchman had gotten past the other Marquez a few laps earlier and closed within a second of the elder with six laps remaining, quite significantly faster than the four men ahead on the drying track.

Oliveira and Miller were managing their respective gaps for the remaining handful of laps and although Miller got reasonably close on the last lap, victory stayed firmly with Oliveira. Meanwhile, all eyes were on the battle for the final podium position, where Zarco had squeezed past Marquez at turn eight and set his sights on Bagnaia. The Frenchman was a little more cautious in attacking his colleague and although he was glued to his rear tyre for the next few laps, he never had a go and allowed the Italian seven tenths of breathing room going into the final lap. Marquez let his podium ambitions go for final couple laps, cruising home into fifth position, while Bastianini found some late pace to claim sixth in the final three laps. Meanwhile, Viñales got over the underwhelming start to show good speed late on, overtaking Alex Marquez for seventh position on the last lap. Martin and Binder rounded out the top 10 places, with Espargaro 11th but still making up a significant bunch of points in the world title battle, as Quartararo couldn’t muster anything better than 17th, one place behind poleman Bezzecchi.

After another shocking day at the office, Quartararo heads to Australia with only two points of advantage over Bagnaia in the championship standings. Espargaro is 20 points back and Bastianini also slightly reduced the gap to 39 points, with Miller another point behind.

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.
