Monster Energy Yamaha Team racer, Maverick Vinales managed to become the first to reach the finish line in the First Series 2021 season Losail, Qatar. What about the other riders?
In fact, many think it is more precise to predict that the Ducati riders will appear to dominate in this first series, this is because they always look good when the race takes place at the Losail Circuit.
Meanwhile, in the first race of the 2021 season, there were three Yamaha riders who finished 2nd to 4th on the Starting Grid, including Quartararo, Vinales and Valentino Rossi. However, it can be said that the three of them started the race badly.
As a result, Johann Zarco and Jack Miller took advantage of this situation, they also occupied the top three slots, while at the front line was Francesco Bagnaia.
However, the Yamaha Riders didn’t just give up, they took the opportunity to overtake the Ducati riders through corners, as the YZR-M1 was not that good on a straight track.
As a result, Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo slowly overtook the Ducati riders. Vinales himself shot to pole position, while Fabio Quartararo failed to maintain his position during the race with 11 laps remaining.
Another Yamaha rider, Valentino Rossi even bounced far away to 12th position. Meanwhile, two Ducati riders, Johann Zarco and Francesco Bagnaia, managed to finish in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
