30 Aug Mega Misano test for Quartararo and Morbidelli
The PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team duo of Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli have set themselves up perfectly for the San Marino Grand Prix by ending a two-day test at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli first and third respectively. Capitalising on a strong day one where they finished first and second, the pair were able to work through their testing program as well as ending fast on both time attack and race pace.
Making his MotoGP debut at the track, Quartararo was able to get up to speed rapidly by completing 170 laps in two days. Concentrating on understanding the Misano track ahead of the race, he heads home confident that his pace and outright speed means he won’t be at a disadvantage when practice gets underway.
Working on making marginal gains in small areas for the two days, Morbidelli was able to finish the opening day only 0.02 behind his team-mate before ending the test in third overall. Content that he and his team have improved their understanding of the Yamaha YZR-M1 ahead of his home race at Misano, Morbidelli says he’s leaving the test more than happy with their progress.
Action gets back underway in the 2019 MotoGP championship at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on Friday 13th September, ahead of the San Marino Grand Prix on Sunday 15th September.
