Round Losail with Loris Capirossi

The runaway winner of the first Grand Prix of the season and current World Championship leader, Loris Capirossi also holds the honour of being this week's featured rider guide for the Qatar track.

In the following video, the Ducati Marlboro rider will reveal some of the keys and secrets to the Arabian track.

Losail's 5,380metres of circuit are made up of a series of linked corners, where the bikes reach great speeds. In the main straight, speeds of 330 kph are reached. With 10 right turns and 6 lefts, the track's twists mean that it is extremely important to get ahead of the pack early.

The peculiar location of the circuit in the middle of the desert poses problems for the track. Although immaculately laid, sand blowing onto the track and the intense humidity can become a headache for riders and teams.
