MotoGP: Acosta lines up Bastianini and Morbidelli in Mugello warm-up

Pedro Acosta finished ahead of everyone in the last free practice session at Mugello before today's Grand Prix. In fact, the Spaniard took the top spot in the warm up, which fortunately did not offer any surprises in terms of weather, with clear skies welcoming the riders on race day. Enea Bastianini finished with the second fastest time, while rounding out the virtual front row was a Franco Morbidelli who is increasingly appearing in the upper reaches of the standings with his Ducati Pramac.

Alex Marquez does better than his brother Marc and takes the 4th chrono ahead of Di Giannantonio and Martìn, who yesterday after the Sprint expressed several doubts about the set-up of his Ducati. In fact, after a few laps, Jorge felt an abnormal consumption of the front tire, a problem that on the long race could create worrisome headaches for a rider who in any case will leave Mugello as leader of the world championship standings.

Aleix Espargarò brings the first Aprilia in the standings to 7th place, ahead of Raul Fernandez and Marc Marquez, who finished on the podium again yesterday in the Sprint but has yet to score a GP victory this season. Should he succeed today, it would be victory No. 93 for Ducati in MotoGP just with the rider wearing 93 on his fairing. Vinales rounds out the warm-up top ten, while to find Pecco Bagnaia you have to go all the way down to 18th. The two-time MotoGP champion probably simply decided not to push this morning, having clear in mind the strategy to be applied today in the race. Another victory would definitely relaunch him in the world championship, allowing him to reduce the points gap from Martìn, which today is 27 points.

This is the classification of the MotoGP warm-up at Mugello:
