Jorge Martin is the fastest on Friday MotoGP in 1’47 ″ 402, but many seem strong: Fabio Quartararo is 2nd in a track he fears, Enea Bastianini starts on the ball and is 4th in 1’47 ″ 493, behind of Zarco and in front of Pecco Bagnaia, winner of the last 4th races and expected from the five, Alex Rins, who won here in 2020, chases him, preceding a Maverick Viñales in great dust and a Marc Marquez who immediately leads the Honda in the first 10. The top 8 all start off on the right foot and look ready for a great weekend. Looking at Misano Pecco, Mav and Bestia seem to be in the best shape, but Martin is at home, Quartararo does not want to give up an inch and Marc Marquez seems to be back to show us the pre-2020 rider. Marco Bezzecchi is struggling 17th, as is Aleix Espargaro 1 ° in the morning, but slipped twice, once per session, and 11th at the end.
Martin does best of all and wants victory on his home track, El Diablo does not raise the white flag on a track that he knows is the worst for his M1 among those of the season finale, he appears at the limit but remains at the top. Ducati here, as in almost all the circuits, is very strong and Pecco appears energized, today we will see him fighting for pole, as well as an excellent Enea. «We got off to a good start, even if the track was very dirty – says the Rimini rider – we are working on the front which is still not perfect and I like Aragona a lot. Who do I see as favorite? Maverick hit me on the track, Pecco also drives well, while Marc is already strong and it’s not a surprise ».
In the Aprilia house they have a really radiant and charged Mav: his great step. When she started to be strong, did Aleix come down, a coincidence? Yesterday the number 41 of the RsGp made a couple of big mistakes, after starting at his best in the first round. Marc amazes up to a point. In the tests carried out in Misano he appeared satisfied and charged. We’ll see if he can go fast again today and then keep the pace in the race. The first 10 are completed by Miller and Marini, to certify the competitiveness of the GP22 and the good form of both. There are 6 reds in the top 10: as usual, Ducati appears to be the most competitive vehicle. Bez struggles, but is at the first in Aragon with the MotoGP. For him a 17th in 1’48 ″ 475, not far from the time trials that are worth the first 10 places.
«It wasn’t one of my best Fridays, but I didn’t find myself on the tire and I wasn’t able to keep a good pace. Let’s look at the data and improve ».
The Rimini player would have to file more than half a second to get into the top 10 and play with the best. In Moto2 best lap of Aron Canet, in 1’52 “852, preceding Augusto Fernandez, next year on the last free seat of the MotoGP in KTM Tech3, and Alonso Lopez (Boscoscuro) winner of the last race. Fifth Arbolino, 17th after a crash Celestino Vietti, continues his period no. Same mistake for his teammate Niccolò Antonelli, 27th. Alessandro Zaccone is 21st after a modification that has satisfied him (the others on Kalex). Gresini Racing has not confirmed this for 2023: it needs results to find a seat. Dennis Foggia is first in Moto3 in 1’58 ″ 507, followed by Sasaki, Holgado and Nepa.CopyAMP code.
