As the Moto2 and Moto3 riders carry the weight of the season opener on their shoulders, the MotoGP riders, teams and fans wait patiently for the start of the race weekend.
So let’s narrow in a select few riders from both Moto2 and Moto3… Today, we are going to cross check 2019 Qatar data with 2020 Qatar Test data to get an idea as to who has a strong foundation and out of those, who is rapidly building off of that this year. To be more specific, we are going to identify the top 5 riders from each series who:
- Fall within the top 10 ranked riders after the 3 combined days of testing at Qatar
- Maintained a superior Consistency Index in last year’s (2019) Qatar Grand Prix
This cross check will allow us to identify riders who have already established a strong foundation in regards to maintaining consistency throughout a race and have recently proved their ability to match it with superior lap times. Remember, it takes more than 1 fast lap to win a race. A certain level of consistency is crucial for a rider to lead the pack.
