MotoGP Tests Misano LIVE: live events are here! Bagnaia in front of four other Ducati, Quartararo is happy with the new Yamaha engine

It’s off to the first of two days of IRTA MotoGP testing at the Misano circuit, a track that hosted the San Marino Grand Prix last weekend, won by Pecco Bagnaia by a fraction ahead of the other Ducati from Enea Bastianini, his future 2023 teammate in the factory team. From 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (break from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.), we inform you of the latest events on the shores of the Adriatic, starting with this one…

It is GPOne which reveals itself, with an illustration of its own, the arrival of Monster on the fairing of the Ducati red. The energy drink can therefore be found both on official Italian machines and on Yamaha factory.

This first day of testing is of course marked by the return of Mark Marquez on the RC213V…

The start of the work is the prerogative of Aprilia with Maverick Vinales and Lorenzo Savadori. The first city puts the mark at 1’34.964. Savadori took the lead, 1:34.963. Still little action on the track. There are 25° in the air and 24° on the runway.

Hard blow for Honda: there will be no Pol Espargaro wrist injury in Sunday’s Grand Prix. On the other hand, we note the presence of Dominique Agerter which will make its debut in the category on the official Suzuki GSX-RR…

Behind the scenes are also agitated and this news concerns a Remy Gardner in the tournament. He posted a message on his social network not giving reason to his father Wayne who pointed the finger at the management made by his manager. ” I’m really sorry about Wayne Gardner’s proposals to meet my manager Paco Sanchez. Paco is not responsible for my exit from KTM and I have developed confidence in his professionalism and honesty. Together we will find a new project to continue enjoying this sport that I love so much”. But how can the Australian keep his composure on the bike. And will he finish the season?

And here is the long-awaited moment! Marc Marquez on track! He starts in eighth position.
