The Misano Circuit remained open for almost a week to host the San Marino Grand Prix and the official MotoGP tests that were held on the following Tuesday and Wednesday, and in which he reappeared, after his fourth operation on his right arm and more three months off, Marc Márquez to complete two days of work satisfactorily concluded.
Like every week, Uri Puigdemont and Germán Garcia Casanova analyze, in the M otorsport.com podcast, everything that happened in the intense activity experienced on the Italian track.
On Sunday, Pecco Bagnaia took an important victory, the fourth in a row, which puts him absolutely in the fight for the title defended by the leader of the contest, Fabio Quartararo. The Frenchman begins to feel the breath on the neck of the Italian, who continues to cut points at lightning speed. Aleix Espargaró, who suffered a fall in the tests and broke the little finger on his left hand, suggests that he will be fine now to attack Aragón, next week, one of his favorite circuits and where he has always been fast.
After the Grand Prix weekend, there were two intense days of testing, in which Yamaha was able to test the new 2023 engine that offers greater top speed, and in which Aprilia began to work on next year’s prototype with good results. sensations. Honda, as requested, was finally able to count on its reference rider, Márquez, to be able to start putting together the pieces of the puzzle of the new RC213V.
The big question now is whether Marquez will be at Motorland. The pilot finished the test satisfied and with no problem in the arm bone operated on for the fourth time, but he will wait to see how his body reacts after the effort so that, during the weekend, he will decide whether or not to go to Aragón. The impression is that it will be there and that, if all goes well, it could become an element that conditions the final part of the season, in which Quartararo, Bagnaia and Aleix will play for the 2022 title.
