Bastianini closes the Sepang test breaking the absolute record

Sepang.- On a day marked by equality – with the top 18 separated by less than nine tenths, the Italian from the Gresini team, who has a Ducati from last year, lowered the absolute track record by one tenth, which was in possession of Danilo Petrucci since the 2019 pre-season, also with Ducati .

The second best record was from Aleix Espargaró, who was only 26 thousandths of the time from the Beast and who also surpassed the previous mark, from Petrux.

Third place went to Jorge Martín, the first among the Ducati riders with a prototype for this 2022 course, and who finished just one tenth off the lead.

Alex Rins finished fourth, in the same exact thousandth as Maverick Viñales ( fifth ), while Pecco Bagnaia finished sixth. Unlike what happened on Saturday, Ducati focused on sweetening the engine of its new prototype, and left the refinement of the front height adjuster for later.

Fabio Quartararo, the world champion, was the seventh fastest, less than two tenths behind Bastianini and only 19 thousandths ahead of Marc Márquez (eighth).

Unlike the majority, who chose to end the training when the heavy rain appeared at lunchtime, Márquez chose to go out again despite the fact that the asphalt was not dry, and he hurried until the last moments ( completed 48 laps, after 55 on Saturday).

Johann Zarco (ninth) and Pol Espargaró closed a very tight top 10, in which the first and tenth were separated by less than three tenths.

Joan Mir finished 12th; Alex Márquez, who suffered a fall without consequences, was 17th, while Raúl Fernández was 19th.

The MotoGP World Championship caravan will travel this Monday to Mandalika, where from Friday to Sunday of next year, the preseason will be completed before the season starts, in Losail ( Qatar ), on March 6.
