 Motorcycle Market sets vigorously - Europe new registrations 2021 The motorcycle new registrations in Europe put in 2021 by 7.8 percent compared to 2020.

After the first MotoGP race at the Losail International Circuit, doubts about Yamaha hang in the air. However, Franco Morbidelli remains calm: 'We wait until we reach Europe before panicking'.

Morbidelli started the season with an 11th place finish, 16.712 seconds ahead of winner [Enea] Bastianini, in a weekend that had started well, at the top of the free practice sessions. The final outcome resulted in just five points in the standings.

Doubts appear about the YZR-M1, which evolved little, while its rivals are taking the step forward. Not only in terms of top speed, but also in the lack of grip: 'We lacked grip and top speed. These are two problems we already know about. We'll see how things go in Mandalika, and I'm sure we'll try to solve them, especially the grip issue,' said the Italian-Brazilian rider.

NFT and metackers: The Sotheby's auction house goes on digital

An auction house founded in 1744 starting in NFTs and metackers? A logical sequence in Sotheby's history, with regard to the audience and interest "absolutely huge" for these digital objects, according to his boss Charles Stewart. "The reason why Sotheby's exists for 277 years is that we have a story that embraces innovation.

Morbidelli believes he could have done more: 'I expected a bit more, and I could have done a bit more, but I had a very bad start. I lost a lot of positions in the first two laps. I wasn't smart enough to make the right moves in the first laps, and I lost a lot of time. I wasn't really prepared in the first phase of the race.'

Yamaha find themselves in last place in the constructors' standings after the conclusion of the first stage in Qatar, with their seven points. Morbidelli is keeping his hopes up: 'I would at least wait for the championship to come to Europe before panicking.'
