The victory of Portugal, the previous date, was revalidated this Sunday in Montmeló and with it the great level that Fabio Quartararo is promoting with his Yamaha in the Iberian circuits, which allowed him to establish himself at the top of the MotoGP championship and project an encore in the obtaining the world title as in 2021.

The Frenchman managed to prevail in the race on the Catalan track with a resounding dominance during the 24 laps, after starting from third place and achieving his tenth victory in MotoGP, managing to lead Jorge Martín by more than six seconds, who made a great comeback from position twelve, and Johan Zarco, who escorted him to the podium.

The great disappointment for the locals was the unusual delay of Aleix Espargaró, who lost his concentration on the last lap and thought that the race was over, and therefore slowed down briefly when crossing the control line and lost a place on the podium, falling to fifth place after being overtaken by Zarco and Joan Mir, after starting 17th.

The one who achieved pole, Francesco Bagnaia could do little due to the blow he had when Takaaki Nakagami lost control of his bike in the first lap of the competition and forced both to retire from the race, as well as Alex Rins, who was also involved in the incident.

The season will have its next appointment at the Sachsenring, on June 17, 18 and 19, to run the German GP, ​​where Quartararo will arrive leading the contest with 147 points, beating Espargaró by 22 units, and Enea Bastianini by 53 (he he fell three times and retired on the seventh lap).
