SKOR.id – Seperti di Sepang, Malaysia, Ducati kembali mendominasi timing sheet saat juara dunia MotoGP Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) mengklaim posisi teratas untuk tes kedua berturut-turut. 

Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) menjadi pembalap tercepat non-Ducati, seperti yang terjadi di Sepang, namun dalam hal kecepatan untuk satu lap (time attack pace), sekali lagi ada kesenjangan yang cukup besar.

“Bukan di level lain tapi mereka (Ducati) satu langkah lebih kompetitif daripada kami,” kata Aleix Espargaro kepada MotoGP.com, usai hari kedua atau terakhir tes MotoGP Qatar, Selasa (20/2/2024) malam waktu setempat atau Rabu dini hari WIB. 

“Pada time attack, jika ingin bertarung dengan mereka, kami memerlukan tenaga sedikit lebih banyak. 

“Kami bisa lebih dekat saat balapan. Tetapi, sebelumnya Anda tentu perlu melakukan kualifikasi dengan baik tetapi kami melewatkan sesuatu. Dengan cengkeraman ekstra, kami tidak bisa memaksimalkan keuntungan itu.”

Bukan karena kurang berusaha, Espargaro mengatakan dia sudah melakukan segala daya untuk menutup kesenjangan dengan Ducati

Delapan besar hasil tes hari terakhir di Qatar menempatkan lima pembalap Ducati di dalamnya, dengan Espargaro (ketiga), Raul Fernandez (kelima), dan Maverick Vinales (keenam). Ini tentu menjadi tantangan terbesar pada hari kedua di Qatar.

“Saya mencoba segalanya selama beberapa hari ini untuk bisa lebih dekat dalam satu lap karena saya tahu ini sangat penting,” tutur Espargaro.

“Saya merasa seperti berada pada batas kemampuan motor. Dalam simulasi balapan, saya mampu menyelesaikan beberapa lap dalam waktu di kisaran 1:51 menitan. Namun saya mampu melaju lebih cepat dengan ban lunak (soft).

“Dengan ban medium saya senang dan sangat cepat, namun dengan ban lunak kami perlu meningkatkannya.”

Catatan waktu lap terbaik Espargaro jauh di bawah rekor lap resmi. Namun, Bagnaia unggul lebih dari tiga persepuluh detik. Sebagai catatan, pada hari pertama tes Qatar, Espargaro juga berada di P3 dengan terpaut 0,292 detik dari Bagnaia yang juga menempati P1. 

Itulah sebabnya Espargaro melihat sang juara dunia sebagai favorit. Termasuk saat ditanya untuk memprediksi siapa pembalap yang harus dikalahkan. 

“Juara dunia. Inilah mengapa dia mendapat nomor satu di fairing-nya. Juara dunia dua (2022, 2023) musim terakhir itu terlihat kuat. Dia terlihat kuat sejak awal. Dialah pembalap yang harus dikalahkan,” ucap Espargaro.

Hasil Hari Terakhir/Kedua (FP2) Tes MotoGP Qatar, Selasa (20/2/2024) Malam:

  1. Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) 1:50,952 menit 
  2. Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo) +0,120 detik
