What time is the qualifier for the Argentine GP of MotoGP 2022

The announcement of the suspension of Friday’s session of the Argentine Grand Prix due to logistical problems, forced the promoters of the championship to condense into a single day, on Saturday, all the training sessions that are usually held over two days, with some cuts and variations that we explain below.

As far as MotoGP is concerned, a normal grand prix starts on Friday with two free practice sessions, FP1 and FP2 of 45 minutes each. While FP3 (45′) is held on Saturday, after which the 10 drivers who go directly to Q2 (the fastest of the three training sessions combined) are established; FP4 (30′) and then the official time trials, Q1 and Q2, from which the poleman and the starting order on the grid finally emerge.

In total we are talking about the fact that, usually, the drivers have 165 minutes of training, in addition to the official timed sessions (Q1 and Q2) between Friday and Saturday.

With the suspension of Friday at Termas, the new program establishes that MotoGP will have an FP1 on Saturday morning and an FP2 in the afternoon of 45 minutes each, after which the 10 riders who go directly to Q2 will be established . There will be a 30-minute FP3 that will not count for qualifying, which will be held immediately before the start of Q1 and Q2, which will remain at its usual 15 minutes. Therefore, compared to the normal grand prix, the drivers will have 45 minutes less free practice.

Of those three-quarters of an hour of training that the riders lose, a part will be made up on Sunday morning, in the warm-up, which usually lasts 20 minutes in the premier class and, this time, has been set at half an hour, so, in the end, the Argentine Express Grand Prix will only end up skimping on 35 minutes of practice for the drivers, completing 130 of the usual 165.
