Four riders were found to be under the specified tyre pressures in Sunday’s Qatar MotoGP race.
The riders mentioned – Alex Marquez, Jack Miller, Johann Zarco, and Augusto Fernandez – received their first offense for breaching tire pressure regulations. They join a list of riders who have already received an Official Warning this season. If any of these riders breach the regulations again in the upcoming Valencia finale, they will receive a 3-second post-race time penalty, except for Aleix Espargaro who risks a 6-second penalty due to previous offenses. In contrast, riders without an Official Warning can use a deliberately low tire pressure without risking their race result. The remaining riders who have not used their low-pressure warning are Fabio Quartararo, Takaaki Nakagami, Brad Binder, Joan Mir, Fabio di Giannantonio, Alex Rins, and Miguel Oliveira, who are either full-time or injured.
