Why MotoGP’s newest winner can be a menace in the coming races

Enea Bastianini etched himself into the history books as MotoGP’s newest winner with a stunning ride to victory in last Sunday’s 2022 season-opening Qatar Grand Prix. He has pricked the ears of a number of rivals and can prove to be a real menace in the early races of 2022

Enea Bastianini’s maiden MotoGP victory will long live in the memory of those within his Gresini Racing team, not least that of team owner and principal Nadia Padovani.

The 2022 campaign marks Gresini’s first since 2014 where it has run as a truly independent team, having been used as Aprilia’s factory entrant since it returned to MotoGP in 2015. Towards the end of 2020 Fausto Gresini, the double 125cc world champion who founded the team, announced his squad would be cutting ties with Aprilia and moving forward on its own.
