Quartararo would be champion with a result like that of FP1

It is only the FP1 of the Valencia GP, but a result in Sunday’s MotoGP race like the one seen in the first session of the weekend would bring one of the biggest surprises in the history of this sport. And it is that Fabio Quartararo, who reaches 23 points in the general of the leadership that Francesco Bagnaia occupies, has begun fulfilling his part, which is to occupy the first place, while the Italian has started in a disappointing seventeenth place that, if repeated on Sunday, combined with the Frenchman’s victory, would surprisingly take him away from the title.

It is true that it is only Friday and that Pecco he is a specialist in going from less to more throughout a GP, but also the one from Yamaha begins to believe a little more in the miracle, as reflected by the wide smile he exhibited in the box at the end of the session, aware that his first and his rival’s seventeenth is an ideal combination for him.

The 1:31.388 of the Yamaha rider is still far from the track record, held by Lorenzo since 2016 with 1:29.401, but from the outset it has given him an advantage of six tenths nailed over a Bagnaia that will presumably go further in the afternoon session. Otherwise, a very bad night would await him and not even the arrival scheduled for today of his friend Valentino Rossi would help him scare away the occasional ghost.

Those who have done their homework with a place in the top ten with provisional direct access to Q2 have been Quartararo, Márquez, Binder, Miller, Rins, Zarco, Martín, Oliveira, Aleix and Mir. Among those ten there are three Ducati that would have no problem letting Pecco through on Sunday, however embarrassing it might seem. In addition, Marini (11th) and Bastianini (14th) also qualified ahead of him with one of the Borgo Panigale bikes, with which he would surely gain six free positions in the race by applying factory orders.

It should be noted that Marc’s second place was 35 thousandths off the lead and despite having a crash 23 minutes from the end. Turn 2 (Doohan) was one, when the direction was closed, but without consequences. He was able to get back on track and continue racking up laps, with a very good pace.
