Bagnaia remained unaffected and broke the circuit record in the third free

Date:

The Italian Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia (Ducati Desmosedici GP22), broke the record on the German Sachsenring circuit as the first dropped below one minute and twenty seconds on several occasions, to establish a new absolute record at 1: 19.765, with up to five pilots rolling in the same second.

Bagnaia mounted a soft tire fifteen minutes from the end of the session and in two consecutive sessions he lowered the circuit record and defeated Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia RS-GP), who was the first “fast” reference in the category later in that session and the first to break the previous MotoGP record on this track.

Italian Marco Bezzecchi (Ducati Desmosedici GP22) was not very lucky and crashed fairly quickly at the turn twelve exit of the German track, although he was able to return to the workshops on his own feet to continue the session using second bike. .

Portuguese Miguel Oliveira (KTM RC 16) was one of the first to lower his personal best time taking advantage of the good condition of the track and the fact that on the first day he was not very successful, although this improvement only allowed him to rise to the fourteenth position, which on his second attempt was tenth place , with 1: 20.554, which temporarily “put” him in the second direct classification.

Next to leave was 2020 world champion, Spanish Joan Mir, who placed her Suzuki GSX RR in tenth place, leaving Miguel Oliveira with just five thousand a second, but all the drivers rushed into the race. wheels with fifteen minutes of free practice ahead of them.

And then came the surprise, with a new category record for Aleix Espargaró (Aprilia RS-GP), who stopped the clock at 1: 20.013which reduced by five thousand a second (1: 20.018) the record set yesterday by Italian “Pecco” Bagnaia.

And he again lowered the category record on his next lap, 1: 20.007.

Attending workshops to change tires has become prescient, since after Aleix Espargaró came “Pecco” Bagnaia and Frenchman Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1) looking for a new record.

Bagnaia achieved his goal and set a new record of 1: 19.833, the first rider to lap in that second, and then he was the Spaniard Jorge Martín, also riding a Ducati Desmosedici GP22, who hit 1 : 19.969, but the Italian was still on track and at record speed, with the new absolute best set at 1: 19.765 on his next lap, then he returned to his workshop.

After Bagnaia and Martín, Aleix Espargaró watched from his workshop the “beats” of his rivals, with the third fastest chance, ahead of Fabio Quartararofourth with a time of 1: 20.038, with Joan Mir (Suzuki GSX RR) in fifth place, 60 thousandths of a second behind the reigning MotoGP world champion.

There is still time for a new track outing in search of the fastest time on the last set of soft tires for almost all drivers.

Alex Márquez was the first to die in the busy moment of the session, suffering a fall and the next was Frenchman Fabio Quartararo, who inexplicably lost his helmet visor from its position and had to abort his fast lap attempt, as well as the Japanese Takaaki Nakagami (Honda RC 213 V), but in his case also by the fall.

After Bagnaia and Martín, Aleix Espargaró also dropped to one minute and 19 seconds for second, 64 thousandths of a second behind the Italian, Australian Jack Miller (Ducati Desmosedici GO22) and Frenchman Johann Zarco (Ducati Desmosedici GP22). ).

Quartararo finished sixth last position, ahead of Joan Mirthe Italian Luca Marini (Ducati Desmosedici GP22), Takaaki Nakagami, and Maverick Viñales (Aprilia RS-GP), who entered the second direct classification, leaving Pol Espargaró (Repsol Honda RC) tall riders 213 V), South African Brad Binder (KTM RC 16) or Alex Rins (Suzuki GSX RR), whose left wrist injury takes more damage than he expected.
