  • MotoGP Indonesian: Miguel Oliveira Wins Rain-Hit Indonesian MotoGP in Mandalika

  • Before the race of Indonesian Grand Prix, Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) announced he would withdraw this event due to violent warm-up crash on Sunday morning.
    The race was delayed for 75 minutes by heavy rain and was shortened from 27 laps to 20 due to safety concerns.
    Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM) took his fourth victory of the premier class in rain-affected the race.
    Pole sitter Fabio Quartararo (Monster Yamaha) finished 2nd behind Miguel Oliveira by 2.205 seconds.
    Johann Zarco (Pramac Ducati) was 3rd, which is his first podium since the 2021 Catalan GP.
    Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo) was 4th ahead of Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar) and Joan Mir (Suzuki Ecstar). Yesterday, receiving penalty Franco Morbidelli (Monster Yamaha) finished 7th.
    The 2nd position start, Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati) crashed out at Turn 1 on lap eight.
    Andrea Dovizioso (WithU Yamaha RNF) was forced out with a mechanical problem.
    Miguel Oliveira started on 3rd row, and led the race after overtaking Fabio Quartararo and Jack Miller, then he through to the chequered flag while maintaining his lead.

    Miguel Oliveira said, “Without this good start the race could have been a bit different for me. I really couldn't see anything behind the riders. With all the spray and the rain on the visor, it was definitely hard to see the lines and be precise. Also to judge the grip level. I think by the end of the race I could understand more and how much I could push, but to ride 20 laps in a row in the rain or compared to a practice is quite different. You can explore a bit more the braking points in the practice, or going wide, or cool down the tyres. Fortunately, I made a good start and after that I was following Jack [Miller] a little bit and could understand a bit more. Then it was just about building up the gap and controlling the race. If the race had seven laps more I don't know (if a win was possible) because Fabio [Quartararo] was coming pretty strong. I think it's very early to say because we only had two races. For sure, we want to keep this strong form going into other races. We don't want to perform just three or four times in the season and then just be average. We want to be here more often. We are aware that we need to work really hard, that's normal for this category. Everyone is so close together and you can see the difference it makes to be in Q2 or not. It can turn your whole weekend around. We are focused on being fast first of all, before finishing the races and scoring points.”
