09 Sep PETRONAS Yamaha SRT head to San Marino GP with perfect preparation
Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli are heading into this weekend’s Gran Premio di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini hoping for a strong start to the weekend, after the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team duo ended a pre-race test at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli two weeks ago in first and third respectively.
Topping the test at Misano by nearly half a second a fortnight ago, Quartararo goes into the weekend bursting with confidence and ready to make his mark in Sunday’s race. Unfortunately failing to finish last time out at Silverstone, he’s not only planning on making amends in Misano but knows that he’s got the pace and the outright speed to challenge for the podium again.
Morbidelli is also going into his home race confident that he can deliver a strong result. Using the test to resolve some of the small niggles with his set-up he had at Silverstone last time out, he knows that with a more comfortable feeling from his bike he too can be on track for one of his best results of the season so far as he lines up for what will be his 100th Grand Prix race.
Action gets underway at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli on Friday 13th September with free practice at 0955 local time (1555 Malaysian time), ahead of Sunday 15th September’s San Marino Grand Prix.
