Mooney VR46 Racing Team rider who is also Valentino Rossi’s half-brother, Luca Marini, will start the MotoGP Argentina 2022 race from the front grid
Live broadcast schedule and live streaming link for MotoGP Argentina 2022 will be available at the end of the article.
MotoGP Argentina 2022 is the third series of the World Championship this season which will be held at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit.
The Argentina 2022 MotoGP race is scheduled to take place on Monday (4/4/2022) starting at 01.00 WIB.
On Sunday (3/4/2022) early morning WIB, Luca Marini and 23 other riders have completed two free practice sessions and the Argentina 2022 MotoGP qualification.
As a result, Luca Marini with a Ducati Desmosedici GP22 motorcycle successfully ranked third in the Argentina 2022 MotoGP qualification.
Luca Marini has the right to rank third after carving a lap time of 1 minute 38.119 seconds.
The Italian racer only lost 0.431 seconds to Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) who won the MotoGP Argentina 2022 pole position.
The second place in the 2022 MotoGP qualification is occupied by Pramac Racing’s Jorge Martin, with a lap time of 1 minute 37.839 seconds.
For Luca Marini, this is his second success in getting a front row position since his debut in the MotoGP premier class last season.
Luca Marini’s first success in starting a MotoGP race from the front of the grid occurred at the 2021 Emilia Romagna MotoGP.
Luca Marini at that time also started from third, the same as the Argentina 2022 MotoGP this morning.
After qualifying, Luca Marini thanked the entire Mooney VR46 Racing Team crew who had worked extra hard before qualifying.
Luca Marini’s gratitude this time relates to the delay in the arrival of the cargo plane that transported the Mooney VR46 Racing Team logistics and several other teams to Argentina.
“Ducati prepared two perfect bikes for me to face qualifying. It was really not easy for them,” said Luca Marini quoted from Speedweek.
“They work a full eight hours. Usually it takes two days,” said Luca Marini.
“Of course I am very happy because I will start the race from the front grid. So, all team crews can sleep well before the race,” said Luca Marini added.
Regarding the Argentina 2022 MotoGP race tomorrow morning, Luca Marini is optimistic that he can get the best results.
Luca Marini currently admits that he is more confident because he feels comfortable with his Desmosedici GP22 motorbike.
“I already feel comfortable with the bike, especially when chasing lap times,” said Luca Marini.
“We did have some problems at the start of the season. However, I think we continue to develop in a better direction at this time,” said Luca Marini.
“From the start, I was very optimistic to be fast and strong at this track. You have to remember that it’s my first time racing at this track in the MotoGP class,” said Luca Marini added.
Starting the race from the front grid, of course, opens the opportunity for Luca Marini to get on the podium at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit.
In the first two series this season, Luca Marini always failed to enter the top 10.
Luca Marini was only able to grab three points from the Qatar 2022 MotoGP series opener after finishing in 13th place.
Two weeks later, Luca Marini had to settle for finishing in 14th place in the 2022 Indonesian MotoGP race at the Mandalika Circuit.
Reaching five points from two races makes Luca Marini now stuck in 15th place in the MotoGP rider standings for 2022.
Luca Marini is temporarily behind by 25 points from Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing) who sits at the top of the standings.
The Argentina 2022 MotoGP race in the early hours of the morning will be broadcast live by a private television station starting at 01.00 WIB.
