Takaaki Nakagami started the 2022 MotoGP World Championship in solid style with a hard-fought top-10 finish at the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix. The LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider showed patience and consistency to claim 10th position, having begun Sunday’s race from the sixth row of the grid at the Losail International Circuit.
Encouraged by his strong display in FP4 on Saturday, Taka got the fast start he was looking for as he climbed from 16th into 13th spot on the opening lap. With a number of fallers ahead of him, the Japanese star maintained his focus throughout to ensure he saw the chequered flag and secure six valuable championship points.
