The top three from today’s qualifiers are unanimous in choosing the top favorites for tomorrow’s win. Despite not the best starting point, it is still supposed to be both Suzuki racers. Alex Rins and Joan Mir were in the forefront of free practice, both in terms of achieving the fastest times and the rhythm of the race simulation. That is why they were among the main favorites for the highest places before the start of the qualifications. Despite Suzuki's progress in the new powertrain, the qualifiers did not go according to their wishes, as they will only start the race from eighth and tenth place, respectively. Despite the best rhythm, the racer has to work extremely hard if they want to fight for victory.
Despite the slightly worse starting position, the top three from today's qualifiers are convinced that Suzuki are the main favorites to win.
“I think Rins and Mir will be the strongest tomorrow. I hope to be able to fight them, ”said Martin after the qualifiers.
“Suzuki and Honda are the teams that have made the biggest step forward compared to last season. The Suzuki engine is visibly more powerful. In the past, they were the best, especially at the end of the race, as they knew how to watch for tire wear. Due to the stronger engine, overtaking will no longer be so easy. ”
The surprise of the day, Enea Bastianini and Marc Marquez, also agreed with him.
“If we focus on FP2 and FP3 then the main favorites are Suzuki. In the fourth practice, the Ducati were fast as well as the Quartararo, which will start a little further behind. We are on a very specific track so it is difficult to say exactly which motorcycle is the best. But the best motorcycle doesn't always win. It is a combination of a racer and a motorcycle, ”concluded Marquez.
