If you were unable to watch the MotoGP race from Qatar it was another very close race that came down to the last corner and a sprint to the finish line between Andrea Dovioso and Marc Marquez with Dovi winning by 0.0284.  It was almost a carbon copy of the 2018 race. 

Following the race Honda, Suzuki, KTM, and Aprilia all protested Ducati using a new device mounted to the swingarm which Ducati says cools the tire.  If you take a look at the Moto Matters link you can see the device as well as the little cooling/aerodynamic  ducts on the front brakes plus the Tri-Wing fairing.  You have to look closely to see the swingarm device under the rear of the fairing and in front of the tire. The protest was over ruled and now Honda, Suzuki, KTM, and Aprila are going to an Appeals type court for a decision.

I cannot find a short video of the last lap or last corner of the race.

Dovi, Dovi, Dovi!!!  Petrucci finished in sixth on the other Ducati.
