LIVE LIVE FROM FP3 AND QUALIFYING AT THE AZERBAIJAN F1 GP AT 11.00 AND 14.00

10.55: Appointment at 13.30 for FP4 where the pilots will simulate the conditions of the race, to precede the qualifications (2.10 pm). Greetings from the editorial team of OA Sport.

10.52: An important turn, therefore, to define the balance in which Ducati conformed quite well in the simulation of the time-attack, but not on the pace. Tire degradation for Bagnaia and associates is a problem.

10.49: Analyzing the race pace, Morbidelli has a really comforting performance because his succession of laps is on the low 1’40 “, with some peaks from 1’39” high. Even better performances than Quartararo!

10.46: Marc Marquez expelled from Q2, only 14th with his Honda at 0 ″ 772 from the top. The Spaniard is having a hard time changing direction and when it comes to finding the limit he doesn’t have the right answers.

10.43: Great performance by Franco Morbidelli who gets the time of 1’38 ″ 929 to precede by 0 ″ 046 Quartararo and 0 ″ 122. A real masterpiece of the “Morbido” which, despite a two-year-old bike, literally flies on this track. Ducati also did well with Bagnaia in fourth position at 0 ″ 144. To underline the qualification in Q2 of Valentino Rossi who, with grit and determination, proved to be able to go fast (+0 ″ 497). Q2 also centered for Mir, eighth in this session at 0 ″ 395.

10.10: To understand what will happen when the temperatures rise, given that the level of grip will be different. In FP4 we will have some important answers.

10.09: Valentino Rossi is eighth at 0 ″ 879 with two averages. Several riders are also lapping with an average on the rear.

10.08: 1’39 “566 for Morbidelli who moves into second position at 0” 118 from Oliveria. The Italian centaur is shooting with a couple of medium size.

10.07: Bagnaia improves his response in this FP3 reaching 0 ″ 424 from the time trial of Oliveira, in fourth position, preceded by Vinales (+0 ″ 321) and Morbidelli (+0 ″ 403).

10.06: Valentino Rossi is seventh in this round with an average pair at 0 ″ 879 from the top.

10.04: Oliveira leads with a time of 1’39 “448 with the KTM ahead of 0” 342 Vinales and 0 “424 Bagnaia. The first two riders run with a couple of soft / medium, while Bagnaia and with two medium.

10.02: Bastianini crashed at turn-5: front loss for him without consequences on the rider’s body.

10.01: Oliveira takes the lead with a time of 1’39 “677 ahead of 0” 644 Bagnaia and 0 “650 Valentino Rossi, who is running with a pair of mediums.

10.00: The first times arrive with Lecuona in front of everyone with a time of 1’41 ″ 082 with KTM to precede the other standard bearer of KTM Binder by 24 thousandths.

9.58: First returns without pushing for the drivers who have to bring the tires up to temperature

9.55: GO TO FP3!

9.54: The pilots ready to enter the track for a decisive FP3 to establish their presence in Q2 and Q1.

9.51: A particularly interesting turn is therefore expected.

9.49: Both are far from the top positions they would like to occupy and the reasons are different: the native ace from Cervera struggles to push a very nervous Honda on the front to the limit.

9.46: Another theme of the weekend is that concerning two champions in difficulty, namely Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi.

9.43: Tire degradation is one of the critical issues that the Borgo Panigale team has to face and will have to take this into account if it wants to hit the best possible spot on this track.

9.40: From this point of view Ducati showed good things on the flying lap, as evidenced by the best time of the Red Team Pramac of Frenchman Johann Zarco, but the same cannot be said of the performance with petrol in the tank.

9.37: The two in yesterday’s free practice impressed with their consistency of performance: many laps ringed on the 1’39 “high and 1’40” low pace, testifying to an excellent feeling with the bike and the Michelins. Two excellent conditions in view of today’s time-attack and even more so of tomorrow’s GP where it will be important to put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

9.34: We expect a confrontation that is not new in this premier class championship, namely the one between Yamaha and Ducati. During free practice, the M1 showed that it was particularly on the ball thanks above all to two riders: Franco Morbidelli of the Petronas Team and Fabio Quartararo (World Championship leader), standard bearer of the Factory Team.

9.31: The appointment of today’s qualifications is important because now, with the level reached in the premier class, the conquest of a place on the starting grid in the front rows is a necessary and not sufficient condition to achieve victory on Sunday. Not enough precisely because the rest of the work will be done during the race and in the latter case the management of the compounds will be a determining factor.

9.28: Another topic of the weekend concerns the moment experienced by Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi. The two champions in crisis of results are looking for something that can comfort them, but at the moment the way out at the end of the tunnel is far away: the Iberian still suffers tremendously from the changes of direction at the wheel of the Honda; the “Doctor” is slow overall in all the dynamics on the track.

9.24: At the moment, however, the transalpine is proceeding quickly on his way, exhibiting an excellent consistency of performance and a remarkable pure speed. For the Borgo Panigale bikes, however, there are some critical issues regarding tire degradation.

9.21: The first theme will be the confrontation between Ducati and Yamaha. The Rossa, after the blow of the Mugello GP, needs to reverse the course and make it clear to the French Fabio Quartararo that it won’t be all too easy.

9.18: On the Barcelona track the teams and drivers will have to maximize their performance to get the pass for Q2 and then focus on the afternoon time-attack.
