D.opiette by Jonathan Rea who takes advantage of a crush of Razgatlioglu in the Superpole Race and manages not to be mocked by Bautista in race 2, as it happened yesterday to the outgoing world champion.
After two tracks that Yamaha did not consider as favorable as Aragon and Assen, Toprak's hopes for a comeback were all for the Portuguese track where he had conquered his first pole position and had won two races out of three in 2020. Instead, even on the winding track near Lisbon, the R1 was not able to get the better of the Panigale V4 and the Ninja.
B.chauffeur seems to be running for savings, but pulls out his claws at the right time. Rea is back the cannibal who never appeases his hunger for victories, the only one missing is Toprak, who was also unlucky at Estoril, because without the skid of the last lap in Superpole Race, perhaps he would have interrupted a fasting that lasts from 17 October 2021 (Superpole Race in Argentina). In Portugal the young Turkish remains at "zero tituli" as a famous character born in these parts would say.
Behind the magnificent three is confirmed Andrea Locatelli, highlights itself Iker Lecuona and review itself Alex Lowesfourth in race2.
