The bikes had been running for more than twenty-four hours on the Portimao circuit, but only started this Saturday afternoon during the Portuguese Grand Prix final qualifying round. The trail finally dried up after heavy rain, and it was a big time test battle. Johan Sarko won the toss and elected to field.
In the handle of his brawl, the Frenchman allowed the other riders to advance. He did this by finishing out John Mir (Suzuki) and Jack Miller (Ducati) in the final sprint at 1’42”003. “Honestly, I’m very happySarco whispered on the Canal + microphone as he arrived. I did not expect this to work so well. ⁇
Performance will allow him to imagine the best. Because in 2020 Miguel Olivera, then in 2021 Fabio Guardarro and Francesco Pacna won each of the three riders who scored in MotoGP in Portimao.
Guardarro was blocked by the yellow flag
Guardarro, to be precise, got into the fight and gave him color after 3 free exercises. He will finally start in the second row (5th 0 ”713), but he could have started from a height if his last fold was invalid due to the yellow flag.
The same thing happened with Mark Marquez, who placed 9th on the grid and paid even more. Francesco Bagnoya is still unhappy about going last Sunday, having fallen in Q1 and unable to get back on the bike. He was also taken to the hospital for examination.
