This weekend will see PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team, with riders Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli, in action at the Catalan GP – the final round in the September triple header.
After closing the gap in the championship standings to just one point last time out, Quartararo will be heading into the Gran Premi de Catalunya hoping to retake his position at the top of the riders’ championship. The Frenchman has good form at the circuit, after converting his pole position last year to a second place finish.
Team-mate Morbidelli, who continues to recover from a stomach bug, will be aiming to go into the eighth round of 2020 fighting fit and challenging for another podium finish. Despite a slightly disappointing result last time out, the Italian has moved up into fifth in the championship standings and will be looking to further close the gap to those ahead of him.
The Gran Premi de Catalunya will get underway for the PETRONAS Yamaha SRT riders on Friday with Free Practice 1 at 9.55am local time (3.55pm MYT). Sunday’s 24-lap race will get underway at 3pm local time (9pm MYT), one hour later than usual.
