Nightmare for teams as virus sends MotoGP into chaos

PETALING JAYA: A logistical nightmare awaits for the Petronas Yamaha Sepang Racing Team (SRT) with the opening rounds of the MotoGP world championship thrown into chaos by the Covid-19 outbreak.

This weekend’s event in Qatar will now take place without the premier class race after the country introduced harsh entry restrictions for recent visitors to Italy. Moto2 and Moto3 will still go ahead as teams and riders are already present in the country following their final pre-season test at the Losail track.
