S.achsenring – It goes very fast: the first five riders drop below 1’20 “, a wall never broken before by any rider. The faster continues to be Pecco Bagnaia in 1’19 “765, 64 thousandths faster than Aleix Espargaro and 108 of Jack Miller: Bagnaia is doing very well even over the distance, he seems to have no problems, if not a I stumble in the starting test with the GP22 that has surged.
As has been the case for quite some time now, it is a Ducati domain – four bikes in the first five places, five in the ten -, with only Aprilia able to hold its own, again thanks to Aleix Espargaro, very determined to redeem Montmelò’s mistake, but also with Maverick Vinales finally in the ten: Maverick obtained in the ninth time of the session, the tenth of the combined.
Well Jorge Martinfifth behind his teammate Johann Zarco always effective and constant, while Luca Marini he is the only one who has not improved compared to yesterday (together with Alex Rins, slowed down by his left wrist injured in Barcelona).
Unfortunately, Enea Bastianini is still in trouble, only 18th, always in crisis with the front and once again forced to pass from Q1. It is a difficult time for Aeneas, we have to hold on.
Quartararo, problems with the helmet
THEthe reigning world champion closes with the sixth timebut could not make the last attempt for a helmet problem: the visor detached from the left support and Quartararo had to return to the pits early.
Fabio is still driving well the trajectory he manages to make in setting the one shows how he has the M1 perfectly in handwho is struggling more and more with the other riders, with Andrea Dovizioso 19th and Franco Morbidelli even 22nd.
Mir is growing
B.an overall performance of Joan Mirseventh at the end of the session with a Suzuki that it clearly moves out of the last corner. Joan has taken a step forward compared to yesterday, the feeling is that here she can be more effective than in the last GPs.
A Honda in the tenthe one of Takaaki Nakagamidropped in the final as well as Alex Marquez, always in great difficulty. All KTMs are out of the top ten.
