2017 MotoGP Grand Prix of Qatar Preview
The MotoGP World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the tens of millions, and the MotoGP Grand Prix of Qatar will certainly be a big part of this season’s success. The 2017 Grand Prix in Qatar, hosted at the Losail International Circuit in Doha, is the first fixture on the championship calendar.
Spain’s Jorge Lorenzo took the points last year, claiming pole position, fastest lap and the Grand Prix itself, and will look to duplicate that performance first up after his success in the pre-season testing. Lorenzo can take comfort in his results at Qatar of late, winning three of the past five editions of the race. The other riders that bear watching include veteran Valentino Rossi, the active win’s leader in Qatar with four, as well as last year‘s driver‘s champion Marc Marquez, who won the event in 2014.
