This will be Morbidelli's first home race as a PETRONAS Yamaha SRT rider and his recent results give him reason to be positive. The Italian has finished inside the top ten at the last three races and was seventh at the French GP just over a week ago. Now, Morbidelli arrives at a circuit at which his best result came in 2017, when he achieved pole position and finished fourth in the season in which he was crowned Moto2 World Champion.
Quartararo remains the top rookie in the MotoGP class and made an impressive fightback at Le Mans last time out. At Mugello, the Frenchman's target is to keep up his good results. His highest finish there is fifth in Moto3 in 2016.
The 23-lap MotoGP race will be held on Sunday, June 2nd at 2pm local time.
