Live Moto 3 Grand Prix of the Netherlands 2022

There are many pilots sanctioned for having taken a straightaway from one of the circuit's chicanes. That was precisely the reason for the penalty that Dennis Foggia had to serve.

The top five have almost a second ahead of the chasing pack. Complicated ballot for Sergio García, who is going to have a difficult time defending the leadership of Moto3 today.

Dennis Foggia has just made the long lap penalty and the transalpine falls to 13th position.

In the leading group are Izan Guevara, Tatsuki Suzuki, Ayumu Sasaki, David Muñoz and Jaume Masia.

The race is breaking up and problems for Sergio García... The first six have seven tenths with respect to the chasing group, currently led by the current Moto3 leader.

No one is capable of separating Izan Guevara from the head of the race and the truth is that the Spaniard is putting on the table a tremendously demanding pace for the rest.

Attention because Dennis Foggia has been sanctioned with a long lap penalty !!! It will be necessary to see how much time the Italian loses, but he can stay out of the fight for victory.

Out of the race also Scott Ogden due to a crash...

Izan Guevara continues to pull with everything, but Sergio García has already reached the head of the race. Both Dennis Foggia and Jaume Masia are also in prominent positions, so the riders with options to fight for the title are in the top positions.

Fall of Elia Bartolini !!! The first of the day. The Italian driver is forced to put an end to his participation in this Grand Prix in advance.

Izan Guevara continues to occupy the first position, but he is unable to open a gap, so everything seems destined to see a group race.

At this time, Izan Guevara would take first place in the Moto3 general classification, so the pressure is maximum for Sergio García who is still installed in 9th position.

FIRST PLACE FOR IZAN GUEVARA!!! And he has also achieved the fastest lap. The Balearic driver now has options to shoot at the head of the race and it will be necessary to see if he can open a gap.

Sergio García continues to improve positions and the Burriana rider is already in 9th position, with options to improve.

Izan Guevara moves into second position and glues himself to the wheel of Ayumu Sasaki, who regained first position just before the first lap of the Assen track was completed.

We see one more David Muñoz race in the top positions, consolidating his great breakthrough in the Moto3 championship.

Tatsuki Suzuki is made with the first position. Izan Guevara is currently in 5th position, while Sergio García has gained positions, beginning to build his comeback and getting closer to the top positions.

And if Ayumu Sasaki starts today from pole, another Japanese driver also starts from second position. This is Tatsuki Suzuki, who starts from the front row for the second consecutive race and will try to achieve his first victory since the 2020 Andalusian Grand Prix.

Today Ayumu Sasaki starts from pole, the first of the season and the first since the 2019 German Grand Prix. Today he aims to get his first victory.

Dennis Foggia is presented as the most solid alternative to the two Gas Gas riders to fight for the Moto3 crown. The Italian is third in the standings, 51 points behind Sergio García and, with his second place last Sunday at the German GP, ​​he put an end to a streak of two consecutive races with abandonment.

Izan Guevara starts today from third position on the starting grid and starts from the front row for the third consecutive race. Sergio García had many more problems in yesterday's qualifying session and the Burriana driver starts from 18th position, so he will have to make a big comeback if he wants to score a competitive position in the race.

Sergio García maintains the lead for the time being, but the truth is that he sees how race by race the advantage is reduced with respect to Izan Guevara, who is emerging as the best driver on the grid, with five consecutive podiums in the last five races and three victories in this period, including the last two.

We are now focusing on everything that may happen in a few minutes in the Moto3 race. As we said, swords are high between Sergio García and Izan Guevara, the two riders of the Gas Gas Aspar Team, great dominators so far in the smallest of the three categories.

We review the scheduled schedule for today's races. The action begins at 11:00 a.m. (peninsular time) with the dispute of the Moto3 test. At 12:20 p.m. the Moto2 race starts, while at 2:00 p.m. the MotoGP test gets underway, the highlight of the day.

Meanwhile, in Moto3, everything indicates that we will be able to attend a new duel between Sergio García and Izan Guevara, the two Gas Gas Aspar Team riders. The difference between the two is only seven points after Guevara accumulated five podiums in a row, achieving victory in three of them.

In Moto2 the situation is much tighter with Celestino Vietti leading the table, but gradually losing the advantage he managed to amass at the start of the season. Thus, the Italian has 133 points, eight more than Ai Ogura and 12 more than Augusto Fernández.

In the MotoGP standings, Fabio Quartararo has 172 points, 34 more than Aleix Espargaró and 61 more than Johann Zarco. In this way, whatever happens, the 'Devil' is already assured of going on vacation as leader of the highest category.

'Pecco' Bagnaia is facing one of his last opportunities to rejoin the fight for the title, but everything happens because his reliability in the race improves. And it is that the Italian has suffered four abandonments this season in MotoGP (ten races), twice as many as in the entire previous campaign (two in 18 races). He has not abandoned so many times in the same MotoGP season since 2020 (six).

Francesco Bagnaia has won in two of his last five participations in the Dutch Grand Prix in all categories (in 2016 in Moto3 and in 2018 in Moto2) and could become the first rider to win at the 'Cathedral' in the three categories since Marc Márquez, who won MotoGP in 2014 after having achieved victory in Moto2 (2011 and 2012) and in 125cc (2010).

Only Francesco Bagnaia seems capable of riding in Assen at a higher pace than Quartararo. The Ducati rider scored pole position yesterday and will start from the top of the starting grid for the fourth time this season.

Quartararo already achieved victory last year in this Grand Prix of the Netherlands. No rider has achieved two consecutive victories at Assen in MotoGP since Valentino Rossi in 2004 and 2005.

Once the halfway point of the competition is over, Fabio Quartararo will try to continue establishing his advantage at the top of the MotoGP riders' standings. The French driver has won the last two races, finishing on the podium in five of the last six, so he is going with a firm pass in his goal of revalidating the title that he already won last year in the premier class.

Hello !! Welcome to the live broadcast of the Dutch Motorcycle Grand Prix from the Assen circuit, the 'Cathedral of Speed'. Ready? We start…
