P.ortimao – Finally it is not raining in Portimaoeven if they are still there several clouds. Great attention to Pecco Bagnaiaback on the bike after yesterday’s injury to his right shoulder.
The response it’s not that bad: Pecco finished in 12th place, but second Davide Tardozzi the pain is there, and how. Pecco did not take painkillers in the warm up, he will do it for the race, but it is clear that his performance is greatly compromised, even considering that he will start from the last position.
Great attention also to Enea Bastianiniwhich yesterday has violently beat his right wrist: Carletto Pernat explained that his driver feels pain, his hand is a little sore. Even for Enea, 13th in the warm up, a painful GP is expected.
Quartararo that I pass, pay attention to Marquez
QAlmost all pilots have used the soft at the front and medium at the rearbut the front averagejust as he did Marc Marquez during the warm up. Here, considering this aspect, his third place finish is very significant: Marc can play it.
As well as Fabio Quartararoclearly the more constant in this session: he closed with the first half and that’s what he did fastest laps of all. He looks very good: if he starts well, he can aim for success.
Very effective too Jack Millersecond at 0 ”058, fourth Aleix Espargaro, which however ran with a pair of soft, difficult to use in the race; same choice for Maverick Vinalesgood sixth, ahead of Joan Mirwhich was less brilliant than expected.
In the ten Andrea Doviziosoat 0 ”573 from Quartararo: a small step forward for the Yamaha rider.
