The final section of the World Championship takes the MotoGP riders to Asia and Oceania in a journey that is extended this year, since the calendar is added to the GP of Thailand. A new stop that brings us to the Chang International Circuit, in Buriram, a track that will be decisive for the competition and that could dangerously close Marc Márquez (Honda) to his seventh world title, fifth in the premier class. To have a first match ball in two weeks in Japan, the Honda should finish the race ahead of Dovizioso. The Spaniard will start from the pole to try his goal.
After the Aragon Grand Prix last September 23, in which Márquez took victory After a duel with Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati) and Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati) fell on the first corner, this great prize adds to the Yamaha equation, much more competitive than in recent months. And discards Lorenzo, who will not run after a new fall on Friday that complicated his physical situation.
As for the Thai layout, Buriram premiered on October 4, 2014 and since 2015 celebrates the WorldSBK. Thailand will be followed by the great prizes of Japan, Australia, Malaysia and, finally, Valencia on November 18th.
