With the first six rounds in the books, the legendary Bugatti Circuit in Le Mans, France - a favorite for riders, teams and fans - will host the seventh race of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship season this weekend. While the weather is traditionally playing a major role in Le Mans, the forecast promises a sunny weekend so far.
Although he couldn’t score points last time out in Jerez, Spain, WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team’s Andrea Dovizioso found some minor improvements throughout the official test on Monday at the same circuit in terms of setup and riding. Yet, the Italian is eager to arrive in France to implement what he learned during the test on the Grand Prix weekend.
On the other hand, Darryn Binder following a tough weekend in the South of Spain, found a decent feeling in the race on Sunday, but didn’t manage to finish it. Like his teammate, the MotoGP rookie experimented on some settings of his machine on Monday after the last race, and is now eager to start the seventh round at the Bugatti Circuit, which historically suited the Yamaha YZR-M1.
The weekend will be classically opened with Free Practice one on Friday at 09:55 local time for the premier class, followed by the second session at 14:10 local time.
