Pecco Bagnaia allowed himself to destroy Marc Márquez’s record at Sachsenring. Without ‘The King’, the Ducati dominated.
the temperature rose, especially on the track, where it was 46 degrees compared to 24 in the environment. More heat is expected for tomorrow and the day after.
It was time to try hard tires, front and rear, with those who are expected to start the race. With them, Aleix he managed to make a great record right from the start, improving quite a bit from the morning.
Aeneas Bastianini if iba largo into turn 1, although he controlled his Ducati GP21 in the gravel.
Aprilia was still using the new fairing. They tried it in the morning and went on. In fact, Maverick Viñales has it on his two bikes, with which he has homologated it.
Despite continuing with those hard tires, almost everyone improved their times compared to the first free practice.
Bagnaia used to get mad at Darryn Binder for not departing from the good line going slowly.
Rins, despite the injury to his left wrist, moved up the table. His boss, Livio Suppo, said on DAZN that if it were up to him it should be reserved for Assen. They’ll decide in a few hours.
Despite the two accidents in the morning, Pol Espargaró went out in the afternoon. He had pain in his ribs and a shoulder, but he was even able to count on his two motorcycles, repaired in his garage. However, it took a bit of effort.
Joan Mir took a step forward and was placed closer to the head. Since Barcelona he has found more confidence with the front end.
With six minutes remaining, several competitors mounted new tires. A) Yes, Jack Miller He made an excellent record: 1:20.211. At 16 thousandths of the absolute record of Marc Márquez of 2019. The Australian is ‘plugged in’ after his departure from Ducati and his contract with official KTM became official.
Aleix replied quickly, staying 8 thousandths from the ocean. Granollers is competitive in one lap and in pace.
until Bagnaia arrived and destroyed the record with a bestial 1:20.132. But, as if that were not enough, on the subsequent lap, he set the time at 1: 20.018. Awesome. Like Luca Marini, who could also with that time of Marc Márquez. The Ducati dominated. The man from Turin is 66 points behind Quartararo, but he still believes in being able to fight for the World Cup.
Thus, in the top 10 they stayed: Bagnaia, Marini, Miller, Aleix, Zarco, Martín, Quartararo, Viñales, Di Giannantonio and Mir. Outside are: Rins, Nakagami, Bastianini, Pol, Morbidelli, Bezzecchi, Oliveira, Álex Márquez, Darryn Binder, Bradl, Brad Binder, Gardner, Dovizioso and Raúl Fernández.
Therefore, no Honda in the cut. Seeing is believing, as it is the brand that has dominated at the Sachsenring since 2010, since before Marc, it won with Dani Pedrosa. Also disappointment at KTM, very far.
In Moto3, the surprise was that the leader Sergio García Dols did not improve his time in the morning and was left out of the top 14. Neither did Guevara, but he was second in the combined table, only surpassed by Suzuki. Foggia was third. David Muñoz, Holgado and Masiá, in the ‘top 14’. All in all, it is expected that the times will improve tomorrow in the third free practice.
