Andrea Dovizioso was on superb form in the opening round of the 2016 MotoGP World Championship – the Grand Prix of Qatar – which was held this evening at the Losail International Circuit on the outskirts of Doha.

Dovizioso rode a fast and aggressive race and remained in the top three positions throughout the 22 laps. The Italian got a great start from the second row to finish the opening lap in third place, and he then moved into second on the next lap. On lap 6 Andrea took the lead but after three laps he was passed by Lorenzo, who went on to win the first round of the 2016 season. In the last few laps Dovi came under pressure from Marquez but he managed to hold off the Spanish rider and defend his second place till the chequered flag.

Andrea Iannone’s race came to an unlucky end after he had powered away to a great start. After taking the lead on lap 1, Iannone led up until the fifth lap but on lap 6, while he was battling with his team-mate, the Italian lost the front at Turn 13 and retired from the first GP of the year.
