Ducati’s Jack Miller went fastest in MotoGP’s final warm-up session before this afternoon’s Portuguese Grand Prix.
Australia’s Jack Miller led the field in Sunday’s warm-up in the final session before the Grand-Prix later today. The Ducati man was a tenth faster than polesitter Fabio Quartararo on the Yamaha.
Joan Mir defied his qualifying struggles to take third place in the session. Rounding out the top five were Aleix Espargaro on the Aprilia and Franco Morbidelli on the Petronas bike.
Valentino Rossi’s difficulties continued as the legendary Italian was only 18th fastest. That was one place ahead of the returning Marc Marquez, who seemed to nurse his shoulder injury this morning.
Championship leader Johann Zarco was seventh fastest, ahead of Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales and behind the premature polesitter Pecco Bagnaia. Brad Binder and Danilo Petrucci rounded out the top ten.
Usual suspects Iker Lecuona and Lorenzo Savadori finished bottom of the session; meanwhile, Taka Nakagami, Alex Rins, Alex Marquez and Pol Espargaro packed into the top end of the midfield.
Doha GP pole position hero Jorge Martin took no part in the session as the doctors ruled him out of the weekend after his crash yesterday.
