This weekend a new speed record was recorded in MotoGP. Johann zarco, at the controls of the Ducati of the team Pramac it registered 362.4 kilometers per hour, pulverizing the previous mark, also given with a Ducati, which was at 356.7 kilometers per hour. However, some pilots, such as Valentino rossi, expressed their concern about this brand: «I find it very dangerous«Said the Italian.
The record came in Saturday’s qualifying session, in which the Ducati were able to make the difference in speed. There, Valentino Rossi showed himself at a superlative level, setting the fourth best time of the day, being very close to the Ducati. However, in the race that difference in speed was noticeable, so Valentino fell quickly in the classifier.
Valentino was frustrated by the speed of the Ducati, although he also called attention to MotoGP on this record. It should be noted that Italian motorcycles have great braking power, and lose a lot of time in cornering, which is why during Sunday’s race Maverick Viñales made the difference.
“Going more than 330 kilometers per hour already seems very dangerous to me. So 360 kilometers per hour seems like an incredible number to me. All motorsport fans are very excited about this data, because it is impressive, but this speed is very dangerous, without a doubt, ”said Valentino Rossi after the weekend of the Qatar Grand Prix.
Difference with Ducati
On the other hand, Valentino explained that they are still a long way from Italian motorcycles in terms of performance. “If you want to overtake, you have to do it in the corners and you have to push the tires more, and then you lose positions on the straight. Franco Morbidelli he was the one who played the Yamaha best last year. It will be hard to fight, but no one knows what can happen in the race if we are all together, “said ‘Il Dottore’.
