Saturday finally came in MotoGP. The most important day of the weekend started very early. Under a dense rain, the drivers decided to take risks and hit the track to prepare for qualifying. The day was marked by the return of Valentino rossi, who after three weeks of absence, went back up to the Yamaha.
Johaan Zarco It was the fastest of the Spanish morning. The Frenchman showed his ability in difficult conditions and took almost 8 tenths from the second classified. However, these lap times do not mean much, since when a dry session is played on Friday, they do not serve to qualify for the direct fight for the pole position.
Maverick Viñales finished in second position. The Spaniard said this Friday that they must show their full potential during qualifying, to try to leave out of the fight any direct candidate for the championship. However, whatever the time set, he must start from the pit lane, since he was sanctioned for starting the sixth engine of the season.
To close the top three was Takaaki nakagami. The Japanese will look for his second pole. In the first one he had a hard fall that meant abandonment after leading the race. This morning he finished just over a second behind Zarco. Valentino rossi had a very good performance on his return. Taking into account that he has not trained in three weeks, eighth place this morning is a good finish.
Starting at 10:00 AM in Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Asunción and Montevideo, the classification of the European Grand Prix will begin. At 09:00 AM from Caracas and La Paz. As for Bogotá, Quito and Lima at 08:00 AM. In Mexico City it will be at 07:00 AM. The transmission will be through ESPN Extra and the MotoGP premium platform service.
