The champion Quartararo does not forgive at the start of Portimao

If anyone thought that after winning the MotoGP world championship in the last race Fabio Quartararo was going to relax, the start of the Algarve Grand Prix made it clear that this would not be the case and the Frenchman managed, on his last lap and with the clock already zero, beat Pecco Baganaia to lead FP1 with a time of 1:40.192, 45 thousandths faster than Ducati, who finished second. The third fastest time in the morning went to Jack Miller, all of them far from the 1.38.862 with which the Frenchman set the pole position time last April at this circuit.

Alex Rins achieved the fourth fastest time, just ahead of his teammate Joan Mir, who had one of the scares in the morning, although he was able to save the fall. Luca Marini was sixth, ahead of the first Honda, Pol Espargaró’s. Maverick Viñales was eighth, as the first Aprilia, and Aleix Espargaró and Alex Márquez closed the top 10 of this FP1.

Jorge Martín, who yesterday acknowledged that after the serious accident suffered on this circuit in April he even thought about leaving the bikes, took it easy to finish 17th, closing the classification in his penultimate active race Valentino Rossi, at 1.888 seconds from Quartararo.
