MotoGP 2018

  • Telah berlaku begitu banyak kemalangan dalam setiap hujung minggu perlumbaan dalam musim 2018.
  • Marc Marquez ternyata penunggang yang paling kerap terbabas dalam kelas perlumbaan MotoGP.
  • Namun, yang paling kerap terbabas dalam ketiga-tiga kelas perlumbaan adalah Stefano Manzi.


  • There were so many crashes over every race weekend in 2018.

  • But it was Marc Marquez who topped the MotoGP crash list.

  • However, it was Stefano Manzi who crashed most often over the three classes.

Marc Marquez may had captured his fifth MotoGP crown in 2018, but he also tops the crash list.

Marquez hit the ground 23 times last year, ahead of Alvaro Bautista who found the kitty litter on 21 occasions. The former would have destroyed many more bikes if not for his superhuman feats in saving sure crashes. However, 23 crashes are an improvement over the 2017 season during which he wiped out 27 times.

The world champion crashed mostly in practice sessions as he pushed his tyres and bikes to discover their limits. He will then know how much he could push during the race.

Other Top 5 crashers were Xavier Simeon (18), and Cal Crutchlow tying with Jack Miller at 17.

Malaysia’s Hafizh Syahrin fell 9 times.

However, Marquez’s number of crashes pales in comparison to riders of the other classes. Stefano Manzi (whose front brake lever was squeezed by Romano Fenati) went belly up 31 times in Moto2.  Manzi was followed by Lowes (27), Marco Bezzecchi (24), Jorge Navarro (24), Gabriel Rodigro (22). Marc Marquez would have slipped in 5thplace.

There were 303 crashes in MotoGP, 418 in Moto2 and 356 in Moto3. That totals up to 1,077. The number is a reduction from 1,126 in 2017.

  • Alex Rins dan Suzuki merupakan yang terpantas selepas FP2 pada hari Jumaat.
  • Keputusan yang memberangsangkan ini telah diperolehi mereka walaupun jentera Rins telah mengalami kebakaran di lorong pit semalam.
  • Kedua-dua sesi FP1 dan FP2 berlangsung dalam keadaan cuaca kering.


  • Alex Rins and Suzuki were the fastest after FP2 on Friday.

  • The great result came about despite Rins’s bike caught fire in the pitlane yesterday.

  • Both FP1 and FP2 were run in dry conditions.

Alex Rins’s Suzuki may have caught fire yesterday at the Shell Malaysia MotoGP 2018 but that was clearly not a hindrance.

Rins his bike to the fastest time after FP2 (Free Practice 2) by dipping under the 2:00.00 mark. He posted 1:59.608, a mere 0.089 second faster than Andrea Dovizioso of Ducati MotoGP Team and 0.093 second ahead of Marc Marquez of Repsol Honda Team.

The MotoGP field was lucky to escape a huge deluge in the latter part of the afternoon, allowing the riders to post good times in both FP1 and FP2. Indeed, Dovizioso has recorded his best lap in the first session.

The newly-crowned MotoGP World Champion Marquez had a mad day after saving his Honda many times from crashing.

Valentino Rossi rode his improved Yamaha YZR-M1 to fourth fastest, only 0.159 second from Rins. The Italian’s placing meant that there are four manufacturers in the top four spots. Rossi’s fastest 1’59.767 time was inherited from FP1 where he actually finished second fastest.

Behind Rossi, Jack Miller was the first rider to dip below the 2:00.00 mark. The Australian posted grabbed the fifth spot after putting in a 1’59.771 lap in FP2.

Finally, Rossi’s teammate, Maverick Vinalez improved on his FP1 time to set 1’59.802 for sixth.

The Top 6 covered by less than 1 second, as a result.

Hafizh Syahrin seemed to have a challenging day. He was in 17th in FP1 and 20th in FP2. The Malaysian is hoping to improve on his standings in the Rookie’s category.

FP3 tomorrow will provide the riders their last chance to improve on their times and the Top 10 will qualify automatically for Q2 (Qualifying 2). The remaining riders will start in Q1 and the top 2 from that session will be bumped up to Q2 to qualify for grid spots 1st through 12th.

So, yes, the Free Practice sessions are just important as final qualifying.
