Video: Espargaro loses P2 after blunder in MotoGP Catalan Grand Prix


Aleix Espargaro bizarrely dropped from second to fifth place in Sunday’s MotoGP Catalan Grand Prix when he mistakenly thought the race had ended one lap too early.

Easing off the accelerator and waving to the crowd after crossing the finish line at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Espargaro only realised his mistake once he had been overtaken by Jorge Martin, Johann Zarco and Joan Mir.

To add insult to injury for Espargaro, who lies second in the championship, his costly mistake saw him lose further ground in the 2022 MotoGP title race to series leader Fabio Quartararo, who won the race.
