The race to win is now an internal affair of the Ducati racing team with Petrucci and Dovizioso.
Leading the personal rankings and full of confidence entering the home race at Le Mans with the advantage of winning the pole, however cold rainy conditions in France deprived Fabio Quartararo’s chances of being crowned. Instead, fans welcome the return of a raining expert at MotoGP and the 7th winner of this 2020 season.
Fabio Quartararo won the third pole of the year with an impressive performance at the Le Mans Bugatti racetrack, leaving the opponents behind at least 0.22 seconds. However, race is a completely different story.
If it rains and the temperature is low, the steering wheel of the Petronas SRT has a lot of difficulties with the Ducati behind the wheel, Jack Miller or Danilo Petrucci, respectively. A surprising person has the third starting position at this stage.
And unfortunately, that happened just before the race, the rain fell on Le Mans causing the tire tactics of all riders to change.
A. Marquez excellently won the first podium MotoGP
From the very first seconds of the race started, three Ducati from Petrucci, Miller, and even Andrea Dovizioso from the sixth place overtook Quartararo to take the first three spots. The # 20 French driver continues to fall deeply towards the bottom of the top 10 and has no chance of winning this stage.
In contrast, the 3 Ducati cars run very stably at the top and preserve their position throughout the length of the race. The turning point came in round 19 when Miller’s car had a technical problem forced to give up unfortunately while competing for a podium and win.
In addition, Alex Rins (Suzuki) is on track to finding the second victory of the year, but he made a mistake in the 20th round to continue having an empty race this year.
Thus, the race to win is now only an internal matter of the Ducati factory racing team with Petrucci and Dovizioso. In the back suddenly a strange but unfamiliar name appeared and competed fiercely for a podium position, Alex Marquez.
