Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP's Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli enjoyed a productive day of riding at the Circuito de Jerez – Ángel Nieto today. The teammates used the eight hours of track time of the one-day official IRTA Jerez Test to evaluate some new items. They wrapped up the session in 3rd and 17th place respectively.
Yamaha had prepared a new front fender and a new swingarm for both riders to try. Besides that, the duo also tried the bigger Brembo disks and some setting updates they couldn‘t try during the Spanish GP race weekend.
Quartararo was greatly motivated to get back into action, knowing he had various items and settings to put to the test today. He was the first rider out on track as the clock hit 10:00 and ran a total of 78 laps throughout the day as he completed his carefully though-out testing plan. He secured third place with a 1‘37.438s, 0.302s from the top.
Morbidelli was looking to confirm the good feeling he got from the new setting he found during Warm Up yesterday. The Italian showed his determination, getting a total of 83 laps in over the entire session. His fastest time, a 1‘38.077s put him 17th place in the overall timesheets, 0.941s from first.
The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team will be back in action in two weeks‘ time for the Grand Prix of France.
