In the first round of 2018 Andrea Dovizioso topped the podium in the Grand Prix of Qatar beating Marc Marquez to the chequered flag by less than three one-hundredths of a second. Valentino Rossi completed finished on the bottom step of the podium.
Suggested Bet: Vinales win at 13/4
One of the most interesting stats about this race is we have had 5 different winners in 5 years and that suggests it could be more open than most races. Vinales is one of the men who has won it and based on his performances in testing I am expecting a strong season from the Yamaha riders.
