Bastianini brings out the beast inside him and breaks the record

Enea Bastianini lived up to her nickname, The Beast, in the first part of the second day of testing for MotoGP in Sepang. The 1:58.131 that the Italian set before the lunch break is the fastest lap ever on two wheels to Sepang, with which breaks official Malaysian track record (1:58.303 from Quartararo in 2019 with the Yamaha to take pole) and also the unofficial one, when Danilo Petrucci flew with the Ducati also three years ago to stop the clock in 1:58.239.

Bastianini’s reduction is important, of 108 thousandths, and it is not by chance, because last year he already exhibited a very important evolution in his debut year that took him to the podium on a couple of occasions, with two third parties in the two Misano races, and yesterday he started fourth with his Ducati of 2021 on the first day of this very important Malaysian test. The one from Gresini Racing MotoGP on the first day finished behind Aleix, Maverick and Rins, three pilots that at the moment reappear for the first positions.

Aleix went to eat in second position, improving his great time from yesterday, which has left him 26 thousandths of The Beast. The one from Granollers, like the Italian and many other riders, took advantage of the first hour, which is when the asphalt is best in Sepang, to set his best lap. He has done it in the eighth of the 23 he has.

The third in the time table is now Jorge Martín, 0.112 from his factory partner, although with less status than the Madrid rider because he has official driver treatment for Ducati and has the 2022 version of the Desmosedici. Fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh are Rins, Maverick, Bagnaia and Quartararo. The champion has been located 0.182 from the head, with which the first seven walk in a handkerchief of less than two tenths in a circuit of five and a half kilometers. An amazing equality is seen again and extends to the top 13, because Nakagami occupies that position less than half a second (0.476). It begins to not value that of there are x pilots in the same second, because this time in the same second there are up to 20 pilots. Let’s go, that MotoGP is becoming more and more like Moto3, which is good for the show.

The eighth in the time table is Marc Márquez, who repeats for the moment the result of the first day. The Repsol Honda rider is 0.201 behind the first and behind him are Pol and Zarco to close the top ten places. Further back, Mir 12th (fall without consequences with the Suzuki), Álex Márquez 17th and Fernández 19th.
