For the first time since his return after the operation on his left knee, Franco Morbidelli he hit the entry point in Q2, without even going through Q1, and for the Italian-Brazilian that of Misano was a great qualifying, which ended in sixth place. Morbidelli confirmed to be in great recovery and to have more pace in the wet and in mixed conditions than team-mate Fabio Quartararo: the # 21 also settled in fourth place after the second attempt, before setting a 1: 33.526 which brought him to less than half a second from Bagnaia and in the second row.
“It was a good day for us. The team did a great job of making the right moves at the right time and fixing the bike with the necessary changes. Right from the start I felt more comfortable on the bike than yesterday, we have made good progress. This morning I was able to go straight to Q2, that was what we wanted“, These are Morbidelli’s words after qualifying at Misano. “In the wet it was really difficult, but we still managed it. And this afternoon we did a good qualifying in still tough conditions. This means that I always feel better on the bike. We achieved everything we had planned from Austin to here. We will have to see how the weather will be tomorrow and try to improve also in the race“.
