Brad Binder surprises with fastest time at Qatar premiere

Losail.- Although the track conditions will have nothing to do with this afternoon, when the temperature starts to drop, there are some elements that can already be illustrative in a certain way. Like, for example, the apparent difficulties of Ducati, who saw how Pecco Bagnaia suffered the first and only fall of the training session, and how none of his eight Demosedici could get into the top ten.

On the opposite side, Honda positioned itself, with its four RC213V among the ten fastest motorcycles of this first contact.

The first of them, that of Takaaki Nakagami, was 56 thousandths behind Binder, in second place, while Alex Rins was placed with the third fastest time, one tenth behind the first despite riding all the time with the same rubber game.

Pol Espargaró positioned himself fourth, with only 11 thousandths of a margin over Marc Márquez, his neighbor in the HRC workshop. Franco Morbidelli, sixth, was the first among the Yamaha representatives, while Joan Mir finished seventh, already half a second off the lead.

Aleix Espargaró, who led the first half of practice, was eighth, and Alex Márquez (ninth) and Miguel Oliveira (tenth) closed a most striking top ten, of which Fabio Quartararo (eleventh), the champion, stayed outside.

Also Jorge Martin (12th), Jack Miller (13th) and Bagnaia (18th), as well as Maverick Viñales (15th) and Raúl Fernández (21st), who finished almost two seconds from the first.
