2022 Qatar Moto3 FP1 Result: Foggia Hot Out The Gates

The new MotoGP season got its usual soft opening in Qatar, with the lightweight class starting the traditional FP1 cleaning sessions. Although the hierarchy was unlikely to give much of a hint at the contenders come Sunday, Dennis Foggia reminded us of his status as a favourite by claiming the lead early on. Although the Italian was momentarily challenged by the likes of Carlos Tatay and Andrea Migno, in a late and brief time attack, Foggia swiftly resumed control to end the session almost one second quicker than his rivals. Migno and Tatay settled for their brief time in the limelight in second and third, while Leopard Racing recruit Tatsuki Suzuki climbed into fourth position.

Riccardo Rossi in fifth was the last rider to post a time within a second and a half of the runaway leader, with Alberto Surra ahead of a compact group on the timesheets, including Lorenzo Fellon, Jaume Masia and rookie Daniel Holgado. Kaito Toba closes the top 10, with familiar names completing the top 15 in Xavier Artigas, Ryusei Yamanaka, Stefano Nepa, John McPhee and Deniz Öncü. The GASGAS duo of Izan Guevara and Sergio Garcia didn’t make much noise early on, ending the session over two seconds behind Foggia.

Thanks for the Qatar Thursday preview David.

It is a good peice of writing. I appreciate your thoughts in these turbulent times.
