In Thailand, Miguel Oliveira gave the Red Bull-KTM team their second victory of the season. Team manager Francesco Guidotti was very excited about the Portuguese’s performance.
Second victory of the season for Red Bull-KTM in the 2022 MotoGP season, for the second time after Mandalika (Indonesia) in April, with Miguel Oliveira and at another Southeast Asian circuit after a race where Miguel Oliveira was once again the “Rain King”.
“Miguel did an amazing job.“, said Francesco Guidotti, Team Manager at Red Bull-KTM since the beginning of this year. “In the beginning he was in tenth place in the first few laps, but visibility was severely hampered by the spray and riding in a group from eleventh on the grid, he started practically from zero. Miguel was very fast and very intelligent, and made excellent ‘moves’ in his overtaking manoeuvres. He did everything very skillfully and brilliantly prepared every attack. He was on ‘mission’ today.”
And Guidotti continues: “We know how strong Miguel is in such circumstances in the rain. But today his task was particularly difficult because of limited visibility. Once he took the lead, that was fine… he was then able to relax and regain his rhythm quickly and confidently. He did it again! It is unbelievable under these conditions.”
