He turns around only with the “rain”, the wet tires, even if in the final on the circuit there is also a bit of sunshine.

In the end, the fastest are the riders who changed the pair of soft ones to one in the final medium pair, with the tires that raised water only on the straight.

2’15”872 for Marc Marquez, always at ease on this track, even if his physical condition will have to be checked in dry conditions: in the wet it is definitely one of the favorites, with a Honda that seems to work well, as confirmed by fifth place Pol Espargaro and the sixth of Alex Marquez.

In 2020, the young Marquez had taken a big step forward after the Misano test: who knows that it won’t happen this time too.

Quartararo and Yamaha thoroughly on the mixed

As long as the track was completely wet, Fabio Quartararo he defended himself more than with dignity, but when the asphalt gradually dried, the Yamaha showed once again all the great difficulties in mixed conditions, with Quartararo 15th, Franco Morbidelli 17esimo, Valentino Rossi 20th and Andrea Dovizioso 21 essimo.

Worrying, if you were to run with this asphalt, which, among other things, has highlighted all its own depressions: it’s a pity that such a beautiful circuit is like that penalized by the asphalt.

Competitive Ducati

For Quartararo, the situation is even more delicate because the Ducatis are all strong: Jack Miller, the first to mount the averages, is second, Johann Zarco is third after the operation nine days ago in his right arm for compartment syndrome, Pecco Bagnaia he is seventh, always on the track with the same (soft) tires.

In conclusion, the DesmosediciGP works well in these conditions, Pecco is running strong.

Ktm growing

Ktm is growing, fourth with Miguel Oliveira, ninth and tenth with Brad Binder e Iker Lecuona, among other things with the same, identical time (2’17”596).

Yesterday Oliveira said he was very optimistic, convinced that the solution to the problems had been found in the Misano tests. In fact, in the wet it would look like this. Only 14th for Aprilia with Aleix Espargaro.
