ITALIAN GP – FREE 1 MOTOGP10:00 Nakagami lowers the times of Aleix Espargaró and Bagnaia by 30 thousandths and takes first place

5 o’clock This is the classification with 15 minutes to go, with the Márquez brothers
in positions 17 (Marc) and 18 (Álex)

ITALIAN GP – FREE 1 MOTOGP25:00 It’s the turn of the
Ducati. Bagnaia sets the fastest time and begins to mark ground on the home circuit

ITALIAN GP – FREE 1 MOTOGP35:00 Aleix Espargaró takes commandwith Bastianini and Nakagami just behind

At the moment it is Pirro who commands the classification, ahead of Viñales and Bezecchi. Pol Espargaró is fourth, Quartararo fifth and Marc Márquez ninth

09:55Green traffic light! The first drivers take to the track

09:49That is certainly not what the Mattighoffen engineers expected at the beginning of the season, so both Binder and Oliveira have a lot of homework to do.
Maverick Viñales is another of the riders who must take a step forwardbecause after his departure from Yamaha much was expected of him with his arrival at Aprilia, but he has not yet shown his true potential and all this when both in his case and in that of Aleix Espargaró they are in the process of negotiating for the renewal of their respective contracts

09:49Despite Suzuki’s decision to withdraw from racing at the end of the season, its prototypes and drivers, Alex Rins and Joan Mir, excel at almost every grand prix., although in the end two mishaps left them without scoring in France, where they were among the best in the category until they crashed and that is reason enough to have them in the list of contenders in MugelloAs for the pilots As far as KTM is concerned, both the South African Brad Binder and the Portuguese Miguel Oliveira give one of lime and one of sand and although both have stepped on the podium, the first as second and the second winning in Indonesia; in the rest of the World Cup participations they reflect many ups and downs

09:49In the case of Marc Márquez and Pol Espargaró, the situation is very different since the Tuscan track is not one of the most favorable for their Repsol Honda RC 213 V under normal conditions, since now they are not due to the innumerable technical problems they are having with the prototype of the manufacturer of the Ala DoradaMárquez, with his contract renewed for several seasons, he is not in the same situation as Pol Espargaró, who needs to demonstrate his worth as soon as possible if he wants to keep his position in the Repsol Honda team, which at the moment seems to be very much up in the air

09:32Aleix Espargaró arrives with just four points behind Quartararo and the Mugello track is one of the Noale manufacturer’s test scenarios, which suggests that the Italian engineers have a lot of information that can allow the Granollers track to be very competitive practically from the first practice sessions

09:31Among his “factory” rivals, the Frenchman Johann Zarco must be taken into accountalways among the fastest in the category, but also the Spaniard Jorge Martín, who is playing for his place in the official team, in which Jack Miller does not seem to have many options to continue, although he will surely try to prove the opposite with a good performance
But this time Quartararo will have a unique opportunity to gauge the real situation of his Yamaha against a Ducati that is always very strong on the Tuscan circuit. It can also be a unique moment to see how strong Aleix Espargaró’s Aprilia RS-GP is or at what level the Repsol Hondas of Marc Márquez and Pol Espargaró are.

09:31Bastianini and Bagnaia, in addition to their “factory” rivals, may face strong opposition from both the current MotoGP world champion and championship leader, Fabio Quartararo, who won last year

09:30However, the main focus of attention will be on the Italian Enea Bastianini, the rider who has accumulated the most victories so far this season (three), who will be looking for a new victory that will consolidate his path to the leadership of the standings, but everything to get a place in the official Ducati team
Enea Bastianini is currently the clearest candidate for italthough it is disputed with the Spanish Jorge Martín, because what seems more than clear is that the Australian Jack Miller will not occupy that position next year

09:30Except for the 2021 victory of Frenchman Fabio Quartararo on the Yamaha YZR M 1, the Ducati riders have prevailed in the 2017, 2018 and 2019 editionsbecause in 2020 and as a consequence of the coronavirus pandemic, the race on the Tuscany track was not held. This fact already makes the Ducati riders favorites, which will have the widest representation of the starting line-up with up to nine motorcycles,
being also registered as a “guest driver”, the factory tester, Michelle Pirro

09:30Hello! We start the live of the
first free practice of the Italian Grand Prix in the MotoGP category

The Italians
Enea Bastianini and Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia, on Ducati Desmosedici paths, want to surprise Mugelloa scenario in which the prototypes of the manufacturer from Borgo Panigale always stand out for their speed
