How to follow the qualifications and the Sprint Race on TV/streamingThe news of the pre-qualifications

Good morning and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the qualifying and Sprint Race of the Malaysian GP, ​​third to last round of the 2023 MotoGP World Championship. On the circuit of Sepang we will witness a particularly intense Saturday in which the pilots will be called to maximize their performance and, at the same time, work with a view to durability.

The global duel between Francesco Bagnaia and Jorge Martin. The official Ducati rider arrives at the event with a 13-point margin over the Spaniard. Martin was thrilled in Thailand and is firmly intent on repeating on a track he particularly likes. However, Pecco has also shown that he is strong in the past. For this reason the challenge will be decidedly interesting.

We’ll see who can join the fight. Marco Bezzecchi, third in the world rankings, will want to assert his qualities aboard the Mooney VR46 Racing Team’s Red. The Romagna player hopes to have fewer shoulder problems, recalling the accident in training which resulted in a fracture to his left collarbone. It remains to be seen whether Enor Bastianini will be able to assert itself with the other official Ducati, while Aprilia, KTM, Yamaha and Honda will want to show signs of vitality.

OA Sport offers you the LIVE LIVE of the qualifying and Sprint Race of the Malaysian GP, ​​third to last round of the 2023 MotoGP World Championship: real-time news and constant updates. We start with FP2 scheduled for 03.10 Italian time, preceding the qualifying (03.50), while the Sprint Race will start at 08.00 Italian. Good fun!
