The Qatar Grand Prix ended with the victory of Maverick Viñales and the Portuguese driver, finishing in 13th place, was the best of the KTM and added his first 3 points this season.
Miguel Oliveira, who started in 15th position, managed to run in 10th position for a few laps, however, he lost positions until the end, but even so, he was the best among KTM riders, with Brad Binder finishing in 14th position, Iker Lecuona in 17th and Danilo Petrucci who, due to the crash on the first lap, did not finish.
At the Losail International Circuit in Qatar, KTM’s difficulties were visible from the start and the places on the starting grid mirror that.
But at the front, this was a race full of emotions, with the duel between Pecco Bagnaia and Maverick Viñales, Ducati riders, who again confirmed the top speed they showed in training and qualifications, with Bagnaia, Yamaha rider giving an excellent reply and fighting until the end for the first position.
Bagnaia would eventually lose the second position to Pramac Ducati’s Johann Zarco, finishing in third place on the podium, Joan Mir in Suzuki and Fabio Quartararo in Yamaha were fourth and fifth respectively.
