Net of spectacular performance by Bezzecchi (half-service due to the blow suffered in Barcelona), Marc Marquez’s caress to Pedrosa he says more at the end of the pre-qualifying which decides direct access to Q2 on Saturday. The super KTM test rider, when he returns to the track, delivers memorable driving lessons. The character of the champion is still there, the talent has not been lost along the way. He demonstrated it in Jerez, he reiterated it in Misano (circuit that he really likes).
Bezzecchi and Bagnaia, the feat of the two friends
Pedrosa riding an experimental Ktm (with carbon frame) he adjusted his best time twice, before settling into third place. Marc Marquez, who followed him in the final laps, is grateful: the wake of his former teammate, during his time with Honda, helped him set a good sixth time. But the feat was achieved by the two friends, Bezzecchi and Bagnaia. Pecco, sipping his effort, ended up in seventh place, a good result considering the great pain with which he has to contend after the fall of Barcelona. Not even Bezzecchi was jumping for joy this morning, his hand hurts, as does his back and leg. But in front of his audience and on his track, he even touched up the track record signed shortly before by an excellent Vinales. Then Marco came down exhausted, but still full of that adrenaline that allowed him to forget about the pain for a few laps (“Grinding his teeth”, Bez admitted). The virtual front row is worth highlighting: a Ducati, a Ktm and an Aprilia which confirms the growth now evident from several races. Noale’s captain, Aleix Espargaró, has passed away, only twelfth and also crashed badly at the end of the session. “Aleix hasn’t found the right set up yet – explained Massimo Rivola, head of the racing department, who was also happy with Fernandez’s tenth position -. Vinales, on the other hand, thrives on the tracks with decisive braking”.
Watch out for Aprilia and KTM
The Aprilias and KTMs are a respectable opponent for Ducati on its home circuit. Binder he hit the top ten with the ninth time and Pol espargaro, without the final crash (he was sixth at the time) he could even have brought the Austrian bikes to three in the top ten. As well as Martin he will be an opponent to take into consideration, because the Pramac Ducati rider took to the track very motivated and achieved fourth place ahead of Luca Marini, but after having posted considerable times with the medium tyres. Besides Aleix espargaro (12th), they also finished outside the top ten Quarterly (13°), Morbidelli (14°) e Zarco (18°).
