On the occasion of its second anniversary, the live sports streaming platform DAZN has presented the MotoGP schedules and the one recently added to its Formula One catalog for this 2022, plus sports at the same price of 9.99 euros per month. A telematic act in which they have joined the two teams of commentators -the MotoGP also took the plane to Doha- plus Fernando Alonso and Joan Mir who have connected from Bahrain and Qatar where they were
Veronica Di Quattro, Director of Innovation and Customer Service, explained that “in 2019 we said that the goal was to reach 20 countries by 2020 and since December it can be seen in more than 200 territories globally and this 2020 due to the covid no It has been as we had planned, but users continued to consume more than 49 and a half million hours of streaming despite the date changes, we offered great stories and relevant formats for users “
“The objectives in Spain continue to be that more users enjoy more sport and we achieve this with increasingly personalized product and technological innovation and producing original content”, has abounded.
This 2021, F1 is added to the DAZN catalog and now the entire engine is there together with MotoGP, Superbikes, Formula-E and Dakar, “and it is here to stay,” he said. The Formula 1 and MotoGP seasons can be seen exclusively in Spain on DAZN and Movistar + after the agreement reached by both.
Antonio Lobato is still the voice of F1 15 years later also on DAZN and has headed the segment dedicated to F1 together with Pedro de la Rosa, Noemí de Miguel and the reincorporated Nira Juanco. Ernest Riveras, for his part, leads the DAZN MotoGP team for the third year, which remains intact with Izaskun Ruiz and former riders Carlos Checa and Àlex Crivillé, all of them present at the presentation together with the master of ceremonies Lucía Villalón.
At the time of ‘getting wet’ with the most committed questions, the F1 team has won MotoGP by a landslide. Asked Lobator on whether the 8-year drought can end without a title in F1 for the Spanish, he said that “I like to be optimistic, but not exaggerated either. Fernando frankly has it complicated, there are teams that will be ahead with more speed than Alpine. Perhaps in a crazy race, with rain and abandonments he will get the most out of it. If I had to bet I would not do it for Alpine, Ferrari has leapt forward and will be closer to the place they want although not yet with options to fight for the championship. Podium options and for some victory. I think Carlos may be close to winning a race this year ”.
Joan Mir vs Marc Marquez
Ernest riveras He pointed out that “there are no technical innovations in MotoGP, only advances in peripheral things. Joan Mir was the unexpected champion without Marc being on the track, now he has the opportunity to win again or be fighting every weekend and to endorse that he was not champion because Marc was not there. There is a changing of the guard that has to make the leap Like Miller, Quartararo and Viñales and Marc when he will return, you have to see if he will be as he should be, he is the favorite when he is on track as well as world champion. They will be races with any brand winning with Marc’s correction factor ”.
And DAZN commentators warn that Mir’s World Cup has no buts. “He was the strongest and marked the differences at the level of managing the result and gave a lesson and that is why he was champion and also wants to fight for the world championship to achieve it in another way, regularly fighting for races and podiums, improving the classifications in grid, I lacked the Marc Márquez factor because it takes everyone to a higher level, makes them get the best out of each training session, that he wasn’t there gave us other things. “
The witness Riveras picked up: “Milagro was not, Mir’s title is unquestionable, Marquez was not kidnapped, he was injured doing the same as the others. What Mir needs is endorsement, I want to see the fight on top of everything “
For Alex Criville “It will be a very even season, even the last one can win a race. It makes us think that it will be better than the last one, amazing and I would highlight Marc’s return after standing for many months and with the energy to get back in front, although he has to take it easy at the beginning ”.
