The spectacular Losail International Circuit hosted the first race of the 2022 season with the Moto2 race taking place over 20 laps with a 16.20 start.
After achieving a spectacular double front row start on Saturday, Elf Marc VDS Racing Team duo, Sam Lowes and Tony Arbolino, showed their excellent potential for the season ahead after being involved in a brilliant four-rider fight for third place.
In the end Lowes took the final place on the podium by just 0.078s and the Italian ended inside the top 5.
In his first race for the team, Tony started well, holding second place early on before being shuffled back to fourth.
A small mistake when braking at turn 6 on the ninth lap moved the Italian back to sixth, but Tony stayed right in the fight for third until the final lap.
