10.59 The 11.10 session is officially called Free Practice (FP), not P3. In fact, it’s a session in itself, which drivers need to find the right setup and tires for Sprint Race and racing. The Q2 live qualifier takes place with P1 and P2 on Friday. You have to get used to this new regulation.
10.55 Yesterday in free practice we saw a Ducati that is certainly competitive, but not as dominant as one would have expected. In fact, KTM and Aprilia finished ahead on the flying lap, underscoring how unpredictable motorcycles can be.
10.48 announces a very balanced World Cup. In every race, many riders will be able to strive for victory, not to mention the Sprint. Obviously, consistency is going to be critical, but the current format ensures that even a few falls aren’t unrecoverable. In 2022, Francesco Bagnaia closed the gap to 91 points, which is a record.
10.45 It’s obviously going to be a very different World Cup than it was in the past. It would be like playing a tournament and a half. Sprint Race favors a front start after qualifying a lot, plus tire degradation won’t be a factor, so everyone can push hard.
10.43 will run half the laps in the Sprint race compared to the Sunday race. In this case, in Portimao, there will be 12 face-to-face rounds.
10.41 The winner of the Sprint race wins Jamal 12 championship points, while the other drivers in the podium area return 9 and 7 points, respectively. Fourth place assigns a 6, then gradually drops a length (5 to 5, 4 to 6, 3 to 7, 2 to 8) until the ninth place assigns 1 point for the championship.
10.39 at 16.00 We will then see the first Sprint in MotoGP history.
10.37 At 11.10 the last free practice session will start which will last 30 minutes: in fact, it will replace last season’s FP4. From the 11.50 qualifiers that will determine the starting grid for both the Sprint Race and tomorrow’s traditional race.
