MotoGP™ recap: The Americas GP. In spite of Marc Marquez’s incredible recovery from the back of the pack, a new king of COTA was crowned at the conclusion of Round 4, and that king was not Marc Marquez.
This new king won by a larger margin than Marc Marquez did in Round 4.
The fourth round of the 2022 Championship was held at the Circuit of the Americas, which is widely considered to be one of the most recognizable locales on the whole schedule. This location is consistently placed among the top three of the schedule’s most popular venues.
Due to the fact that Austin was chosen to serve as the tournament’s location, the competition will be held in Austin. In spite of the fact that it was Marc Marquez’s first race back from injury, the Texas circuit has through the years earned a reputation as a hunting ground for Marc Marquez. This reputation was cemented during Marc Marquez’s victory in the most recent race there. In light of this, the rider for Repsol Honda was a heavy favorite to win the race, despite the fact that it was his first race since returning from injury. This was due to the fact that the rider for Repsol Honda had a significant advantage over his competitors.
REWIND: CHAPTER 4 – 500GPS: MAKING HISTORY
COTA Cowboys are currently doing the math to determine how much money the rodeo is going to cost them behind the scenes.
AT THE RODEO, WATCH MARQUEZ RIDE THE ROLLERCOASTER. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO AVOID IT.
The eight-time World Champion, on the other hand, was not meant for a storybook ending with a happily ever after climax. Due to some technical difficulties on the starting grid, he was forced to begin the race from the back of the pack. As a result, he finished the race in last place. He started off in the sixth position on the grid but ended up in the very last slot because of his poor performance.
Marquez demonstrated to everyone why he has had such success at COTA over the years by making his way through the competition in an astounding comeback that allowed him to salvage a top-six result. This allowed Marquez to finish in the top six positions in the overall standings. However, his day was not over yet because Marquez was able to work his way through the race and recover a position in the top six. He was successful in accomplishing this by vanquishing the competition in a decisive manner.
Now that Marquez was no longer a contender in the competition, it was time to find someone else to succeed him as King of COTA. Enea Bastianini of the Gresini Racing MotoGPTM made a strong charge late in the race to win his second race of the year and capture his second victory of the season. Jack Miller of the Ducati Lenovo Team led for a considerable portion of the race; however, Enea Bastianini of the Gresini Racing MotoGPTM made a strong charge late in the race. Bastianini turned forth a performance that was on par with the one he delivered on the very first night of the competition in Qatar.

“IT’S POSSIBLE” – BASTIANINI’S TITLE DREAM BEGINS AND CONTINUES WITH THE WORD “IT’S POSSIBLE”
Alex Rins, riding for Team Suzuki Ecstar, passed Jack Miller on the final lap to grab second place and ensure that a Suzuki rider will be on the podium in each of the next three races. Rins’ victory guarantees that a Suzuki rider will be on the podium at each of the upcoming three races. Miller, on the other hand, did not manage to triumph over his challenges quite yet. During the race, which was held to celebrate the 500th Grand Prix since the commencement of the Racing Together era — the time when Dorna Sports, IRTA, MSMA, and FIM began cooperating with one another — the Spaniard’s podium result also signified a significant achievement for the Hamamatsu plant. It was the 500th time that the factory had finished in the top three in any category that it competed in.
