Quartararo was able to make the most of the day’s eight hours of track activity, with new carbon front forks among a host of parts trialled by the Frenchman. Delighted by his progress and able to be not only fast but consistent, he’s set himself up perfectly for this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix.
Team-mate Morbidelli was able to bounce back in fine form during the test as well, after getting taken out of yesterday’s race. Finishing third, the big set-up change for the Italian-Brazilian was working on adapting to a thumb-operated brake for the first time.
There’s no break for Quartararo and Morbidelli, with back to back races meaning they go directly to the next round of the 2019 MotoGP action at the Red Bull Ring, with practice getting underway on Friday 9th August for the Austrian Grand Prix.
