Oliveira carves out 11th  Lecuona scores points in tough San Marino GP

The Red Bull KTM Tech3 team faced a challenging sixth round of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli today. Launching off from P12, Miguel Oliveira lost some positions in the beginning to cross the line in 15th at the end of the opening lap. Step by step he found his rhythm, picked his way through and managed to pass some of his contenders to be in P12 around halfway stage of the race. Towards the end, he made up another position to eventually see the flag in 11th.

At the same time, Iker Lecuona stalled his KTM RC16 at the start of the warm up lap and during the initial stages of the race received a long lap penalty for this grid procedure infraction. Following the long lap, the MotoGP rookie queued in P20, but grit his teeth to find himself back in 17th after 12 laps. With fast times, he caught up even more in the latter stages of the race and even took over 14th on the final lap to score two more points.

It was a tough race. To be honest, it was quite hard to make up positions, especially in the beginning of the race. We had many riders with different tyre choices, so it made our life very difficult, but we had a good pace, where just too far away. Now we are focusing on Tuesday, trying a couple of things during the test in order to have a better weekend and especially a better Qualifying the upcoming weekend.

In the Warm Up this morning, I felt really good with the bike. Like in FP3, I felt very fast and constant and my pace for the race was strong. I knew that my grid position was not ideal to fight for the top 10. Finally, in the race, I did that mistake in the Warm Up lap. I stopped the engine and eventually, I needed to do the long lap. I was very nervous, because I knew my potential. In the end, I could manage the situation with the penalty and lap by lap I improved. For many laps, I was the fastest KTM rider on the track, overtook many riders and finished in the points, so finally, Im really happy. Sorry to my team for that mistake, but at the same time thanks to them for their great work.

ALEIX BATTLES AND CONFIRMS GOOD RACE PACE

SUNDAY COMPROMISED BY A CRASH FOR BRADLEY

As has happened often in this first part of the season, the end result does not do justice to the hard work done by Aleix and Aprilia. In a race that was more than 20 seconds faster than last years, the Spanish rider finished just 15 seconds behind the winner. In 2019, that gap was 34 seconds.

This is undeniable progress and Aleix confirms it in no uncertain terms, but the thirteenth-place finish is no reward for this satisfaction.

Bradley Smiths Sunday took an unpleasant turn straight away with a crash in the early stages of the race. The British rider was able to re-join but, with a damaged RS-GP, he had to settle for crossing the line when the chequered flag came out.

Both riders will have a day of testing on Tuesday on this same track, which will host the MotoGP round a second time next weekend.

The final position does not reflect reality. We are doing very well and my feeling is still very good with the new RS-GP. Today I had fun and the numbers confirm our improvements. The only difficulty is in overtaking. We are lacking the acceleration to get past our rivals and that forces us to hang back even when our pace could be better. Our growth is undeniable. Well get there, we just need to be patient and keep working.

Unfortunately, the crash in FP3 compromised our weekend. The sensations were good on Friday, but when I had to switch to the second bike, it wasnt the same feeling in qualifying or in the race. Today I crashed on a bump and then, despite the bike being damaged, I was able to re-join and finish the race. Well use the tests on Tuesday to take a closer look at what is causing our difficulties so we can be better prepared for the next race.

Qualifying masks potential of Alex Marquez in Misano race

Despite flashes of promise throughout the weekend, the Repsol Honda Team leave the first of two races in Misano unrewarded despite the efforts of Alex Marquez and Stefan Bradl.

Putting a difficult Saturday behind him, Alex Marquez showed his maturity as he approached Sunday with an open mind. A strong performance in morning Warm Up, ending ninth and only 0.321 off the fastest time set by Takaaki Nakagami, proved there was promise in his race pace. A steady start as the lights went out saw Alex make up a handful of places early, the MotoGP rookie spending much of the race working on getting past Petrucci. Matching the speed of the leaders during the closing stages, Alex was forced to settle for 17th his qualifying position meaning he could do no more even with his speed at the end of the race.

Stefan Bradl pushed hard with gritted teeth as the German rider battled through right elbow issues. A strong start to the race saw his Honda RC213V shoot forward, making up a number of positions. But with the issue in his elbow, he was unable to match the pace he had shown during the weekend and entered damage limitation mode to bring the bike home in 18th.

Takaaki Nakagami took top Honda honours in ninth, his sixth top-ten finish of the 2020 season.

Theres little time to rest as Alex Marquez will be back out on track on Tuesday, September 15, before the Gran Premio dellEmilia Romagna e della Riviera di Rimini begins on Friday, September 18. With a weeks racing at the circuit under their belts, the Repsol Honda Team are determined to take their learnings and come back stronger next week.

Our pace today was good, especially towards the end of the race where I was able to lap at a similar speed to the leaders. My fastest lap of the race was my last one. We have made a big step from yesterday with the bike and it felt good today. It was a good race; I had a hard battle with Petrucci and we touched a couple of times. But it was really the grid position that hurt us today, otherwise I think we could have been up with Binder and Oliveira. Compared to where we started this weekend its not so bad, but we still need to be more consistent.

It was a frustrating race, I had a problem with the nerve in my right elbow that started yesterday but in the race it became worse. Its not arm pump, but my two small fingers were going numb. Because of this I was about one second off my normal pace. Already it was not in the plan for me to test here Tuesday, so I will use the time to rest the arm. Hopefully we can come back next week stronger.

TAKA CLAIMS ANOTHER TOP 10 IN MISANO DESPITE PENALTY

13 September 2020  San Marino GP Race

Takaaki Nakagami had to settle for ninth position in the Gran Premio Lenovo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini on Sunday after being demoted a place for exceeding track limits on the final lap. Staring from 14th on the grid, the LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider battled his way through the field and looked to have secured eighth after passing Jack Miller on the final lap but was handed a penalty following the chequered flag.

The Japanese star laid down a marker in the morning as he posted the fastest time in Sundays warm up session and then produced a fine start to the race proper as he made up three places on the opening lap. Having battled past Johann Zarco at the midway point, Taka then moved through Jack Miller late on but ended up behind the Ducati man in the final standings after being penalised by officials.

Today was definitely quite a positive race for us because yesterday and Friday we were losing time and we did not put in a good enough performance in qualifying 14th on the grid is not good for the race. But with the new holeshot device we are definitely improving at the start, and during the race the lap times were quite consistent around 33.1 or two. But this morning we got the top time which was really, really good for the team and were able to do a 32, but in the race we were not able to do that so we need to understand what the difference was between the warm-up and the race. Its another top-10 and we need to see how we can improve for the next race, but definitely in the next race we can fight for the podium again. We are really looking forward to another Misano race weekend, well stay positive and keep working hard to get that first podium.

THE ESPONSORAMA RACING FINISHES THE SAN MARINO GRAND PRIX

Esponsorama Racing has concluded the San Marino Grand Prix at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. Johann Zarco was 15th and Tito Rabat could not finish the race.

After showing a promising pace during the free pratices sessions and in the qualifying, Johann Zarco has started 10th. Despite making a good start and having a good pace, in the final laps of the race the French rider was unable to maintain his position due to the loss of grip from his rear tire and finally crossed the finish line 15th, getting one more point.

Tito Rabat has had a difficult race start. The Spanish rider lost several positions during the first few laps and with five laps to go, he suffered a crash in turn 9 which forced him to retire of the race. Despite this, Rabat has completed a good weekend, showing a good pace and taking a step forward to face the following races with extra confidence.

Next week, at the same Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, Esponsorama Racing will have a new opportunity to continue working and return to the positions the team deserves.

I think the positive part of this race, seeing the result (P15) and 20 seconds away from the winner, far from the top of the race, is that I got a lot of positive things from the start. The step we took this morning in the warm up has helped me a lot in this start of the race to follow Dovizioso and Bagnaia. The start was good for me, but as the laps went by I suffered a lot with the rear tire, especially the last seven laps, I couldnt keep the pace and I lost a lot.

I think that this weekend I have taken steps forward, in terms of the fastest lap, the race pace and the first laps of this. My fastest lap in the race was similar to that of my teammate, as well as the pace, which was very even for both. Now we have to stay focused, arrive rested for the test on Tuesday and the following weekend and give 100% of myself.

MONSTER ENERGY YAMAHA MOTOGP PICK UP 4TH AND 6TH IN SAN MARINO MATCH

Misano Adriatico (Italy), 13th September 2020

GRAND PRIX OF SAN MARINO E DELLA RIVIERA DI RIMINI

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGPs Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales pushed to the limit at the GP di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, taking fourth and sixth place respectively.

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGPs Valentino Rossi was a strong contender for the podium during the GP di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. He spent most of the race positioned in second place but came just short to greet the Italian fans from the rostrum. Maverick Viñales had a more difficult day at the office. Though his pace improved in the latter stages, he crossed the finish line in sixth position.

Rossi made a lightning fast start from P4 on the grid, slotting into second place. He got into an early scrap with Franco Morbidelli for the lead but completed the first lap in second. Over the next couple of laps the two Italian Yamaha riders stuck together, breaking away from the pack.

The Doctor wasnt quite able to stick with Morbidelli, so it was mostly a lonely race for him. He had a strong pace, riding consistent low-133s laps, but with eight laps to go, Francesco Bagnaia, Joan Mir, and lex Rins reeled him in. The number-46 rider made his Yamaha as wide as possible, riding brilliantly until the very end, determined to be on the podium in Misano. However, in the last stages he was unable to keep Bagnaia and Mir behind him and took the chequered flag in fourth, 2.643s from first.

Viñales had a bit of a scare at the start of todays race, as the team suspected a technical issue when he arrived on the starting grid. It was a false alarm though, and the Spaniard was able to start from pole position as originally planned.

He had a decent start but found himself in fourth place after the first couple of corners. Being the only rider on the hard rear tyre, he had to wait for the tyre to come to him. Meanwhile, he tried to defend his position from charging riders. He was in seventh place with 17 laps to go, but never stopped pushing. With nine laps left, the Spaniard was making strides again. As his pace improved, he soon overtook Jack Miller to take sixth place over the start-finish line, 5.383s from the lead.

After todays race Viñales holds fifth in the championship rankings, 18 points from the top. Rossi moves up to sixth place, also with an 18-point gap to first. Yamaha remains first in the constructor standings, and Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP also stay in second place in the team classification.

Rossi and Viñales will return to the Misano track coming Tuesday for a scheduled IRTA Test before next weekends Gran Premio dellEmilia Romagna e della Riviera di Rimini, held from 18 20 September.

We knew this race was going to be tough and that the tyres would play a decisive role. We had hoped to fight for the victory today, but unfortunately that wasnt possible. Valentino had a good start and his pace was really good throughout the whole race. Its a shame he wasnt able to get a podium result, because that would have been a real treat for the team and also the fans. But the way he performed is encouraging, so for sure he will try to be fighting at the front again next time. Mavericks pre-race experience was a bit unsettling, because we saw smoke coming from his bike when he arrived on the starting grid. We had a thorough check, and it turned out it was fine. However, the race was tough for him, because he didnt feel as good with the hard tyre today as he had done earlier this weekend. Its really disappointing, because we know how fast he is. But we get another chance next week. We will take todays experience on board, and we have the opportunity to test some new parts here on Tuesday, so we will push to come back stronger.

Its a great shame because the podium is always special, here in Misano even more so. Also, to share the podium with Franco and Pecco would have been like a race at the ranch. I made a small mistake and Mir was very strong in that moment, he did very good lap times in the last part of the race. At the end he was able to beat me, which is a shame with just 2km to go. On the other hand, it was still a good race, a good weekend, because I rode well. We had a very good pace and I feel good with the bike. So, even without a podium, I enjoyed it. It was a good weekend for our team and for me, because we were always competitive. This is so important. I think that we can improve three or four things for next week, when well have another chance. This makes me even more happy, because we can try again.

I dont know what happened today. Im really disappointed. I dont know why I lost grip in the race. I tried everything I could, but I wasnt getting enough feedback from the tyre. At the end of the race I did three or four really good laps, but that was too late. We will work on it. We have a test here on Tuesday. We will try to stay relaxed. We need to reset our minds for next weekend. We know we are fast here, so we can start in front again.

Masterful Morbidelli takes first MotoGP win at home

First premier class victory for Morbidelli, race to forget for Quartararo

It was a fairytale weekend for PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Teams Franco Morbidelli, who took his first MotoGP race win in front of his home fans at Misano in the San Marino GP. Unfortunately, team-mate Fabio Quartararo had a race to forget after crashing out.

Home-hero Morbidelli had a great start off the line and immediately moved into the race lead. Despite the early attention of fellow Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi, Morbidelli was soon able to take control. Over the course of the 27-lap race Franco pulled away from the chasing pack, taking his first premier class win in front of his home fans at the first event of the year that has included a fan presence. He now moves to seventh in the World Championship standings.

Unfortunately it was a day to forget for fellow PETRONAS Yamaha SRT rider Quartararo. After a bad start, a Turn 4 crash on lap eight saw him rejoin the race at the back of the field. After a quick pit stop to check the bike on lap 19, Fabios day came to an end with another crash on his out lap. Although he falls to second in the riders standings, the gap to the leader is only six points. PETRONAS Yamaha SRT is still leading the teams championship.

There will be no rest for the MotoGP pair as they take part in a one-day test on Tuesday, ahead of the seventh round of the season just days later (18-20 September).

This weekend was the best so far for PETRONAS Sepang Racing Team, as a collective. It was a fantastic win for Franco: very well deserved, especially considering his crash in the first Austrian race. Doing it at his home Grand Prix as well is amazing. It was unfortunate for Fabio; he crashed while trying to catch the front-runners. He is still second in the championship, so its not too bad and Im sure hell come back stronger next week.

In Moto2 we saw another big improvement from Xavi, finishing fourth. He was very close to the podium and we know that he can do well next weekend, when we are here again. Its been a learning curve for Jake today; its only his second time at Misano. Im sure next weekend will be better for him.

In Moto3 John had his first win of 2020 today and after the ups and downs of the last few races this was really nice to see. To get his championship back on track again is great. For KIP, to be coming back from major surgery like he has is incredible. We do expect him to improve further in the second GP at Misano too.

I feel like this has been a magical week for me. Everything had been going well, so going into today I was thinking that maybe something good would be possible. Turns out, it was something great! I have never won a World Championship race at home before, so to do it in MotoGP is the greatest achievement in my life. Im really proud to be able to say that. I want to say thanks to all the people that work with me, it isnt just me. This win is a result of teamwork. Right now Im just so proud of what we have achieved, not just today but in general. Seven years ago I was racing here with a stock 600, now Im winning a MotoGP race. Its just amazing, especially as its the first race with a crowd this year. It felt great to be able to salute the crowd after the race. We do this for them, so to celebrate with them was such a great feeling.

First of all I want to congratulate Franco, because he really deserved the win today. It was a really tough race for me but it is what it is, I will learn from it. I made a mistake: I was trying too hard to overtake Maverick [Viñales] and it overheated the tyre. I made the move, and was the correct move to make, but Jack [Miller] was in front and I wanted to catch him as well but too quickly. I braked too late and lost the front end. We are struggling to overtake with our bike, which is something we need to work on. Of course I am disappointed, as we had the speed to fight at the front, but we learn from the experience and I wont make the same mistake next weekend. We have seen five different winners in six races and it is one of the closest championships weve had, so Im going to continue to give my best and try to make it ours.

ESPARGARO LEADS RED BULL KTM TRAIN ON THE EDGE OF SAN MARINO MOTOGP™ TOP TEN

MotoGP 2020 Round 06, Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli (San Marino, Italy) Race

Pol Espargaro captured 10th position ahead of fellow Red Bull KTM riders Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder at a hot Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the first of two San Marino-based rounds of 2020 MotoGP.

All four KTM RC16s score world championship points with Iker Lecuona in 14th

KTM sit 3rd in the MotoGP Constructors Championship

The Gran Premio Lenovo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini represented the first appointment of a busy week at Misano. The sixth MotoGP fixture of 2020 was the opening race of a back-to-back stint in San Marino and with a MotoGP IRTA test also part of the program.

Red Bull KTM rued some misfortune in Qualification on Saturday that led to some mid-grid positions. The 27-lap main event on Sunday then became a tricky challenge. Once the red light disappeared Pol Espargaro led the orange charge on the KTM RC16s on the fringes of the top ten. He had Styrian GP winner Oliveira for company and Brad Binder soon joined the scrap. Iker Lecuona was handicapped by a long-lap penalty (after stalling his bike on the warm-up lap) but pushed hard to enter the top fifteen and register championship points. At the checkered flag Espargaro was less than half a second in front of both his fellow Red Bull KTM riders.

KTM are 3rd in the Constructors standings after six rounds and in only their fourth season in the premier class.

Pol Espargaro:Not so much to say today. I had trouble to stop the rear of the bike from the first lap and I was stuck behind Johann [Zarco] for quite a long time. It wasnt really safe to make it happen cleanly and I could only manage when the pace dropped and then the others caught me. We paid a bit for the mistakes on Saturday and we need to solve our problems before next weekend. Im confident we can do it and we can have a better race.

Miguel Oliveira:It was a tough race. It was quite hard to make up positions, especially in the beginning of the race. We had many riders with different tire choices, so it made our life very difficult, but we had a good pace. We were just too far away. Now we are focusing on Tuesday, trying a couple of things during the test in order to have a better weekend and especially a better Qualifying next time.

Brad Binder:I didnt start well and from then I tried my best to recover positions. The first 10-12 laps I didnt have a good feeling but then it got better and better. I dont feel I can complain too much. We have to take advantage of this test on Tuesday to make a few improvements. It was cool to be part of that KTM battle and I could see we were all having the same issues. Its very tight in MotoGP right now but my attitude stays the same: Im trying to enjoy and take the best of each race.

Iker Lecuona:I made that mistake on the warm-up lap. I stopped the engine and eventually, I needed to do the long lap. In the end, lap by lap I improved. For many laps, I was the fastest KTM rider on the track, overtook many riders and finished in the points, so finally, Im really happy. Sorry to my team for that mistake but at the same time thanks to them for their great work.

Mike Leitner, Red Bull KTM Race Manager:It was not the best results for us and the fact that the boys could not get a fast lap in qualifying made it difficult today to get near the front of the group because the rhythm of the riders is very similar. After the last few races we are not so happy with the results but the race pace today was positive. All four riders did well in their respective battles and brought the bikes home for points, especially Iker who came back from a long-lap penalty. Well try everything we can to be better for next weekend.

Masterclass! Morbidelli takes magical maiden win at Misano

The Italian is the fourth maiden winner in six races, with Bagnaia on the podium for the first time in second as Mir outfoxes Rossi for third

Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT), take a bow! On home soil, the Italian produced 27 inch-perfect laps to secure his maiden MotoGP™ victory in a dramatic Gran Premio Lenovo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. Morbidelli took the chequered flag 2.217 ahead of compatriot Francesco Bagnaia (Pramac Racing), who celebrates his first premier class podium, with Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) getting the better of home hero Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) on the last lap to claim his second podium finish. Meanwhile, now former Championship leader Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) crashed out twice at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.

From the middle of the front row, Morbidelli out-dragged both Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and Quartararo off the line and headed into Turn 1 leading, with fourth place Rossi getting a superb start to slot into second ahead of the equally fast starting Jack Miller (Pramac Racing) from the second row. Viñales slipped to P4, with Quartararo slotting into P5 as Morbidelli and Rossi sent the Italian fans into raptures on the opening lap.

Rossi got a good run down into Turn 8 on Lap 1 and showed a wheel to Morbidelli, but the latter was late on the brakes and closed the door. The numbers 21 and 46 then started to create a bit of a gap to third place Miller, with Viñales holding off both Quartararo and the two Team Suzuki Ecstar machines of Alex Rins and Joan Mir. Viñales was the only rider on the grid to select the hard Michelin rear tyre, and the lap record holder seemed to be taking his time to get it up to speed with Quartararo looking impatient behind.

The riders then settled into their rhythm, with Miller hauling in the leading duo to sit a couple of tenths behind them and Viñales and co just over half a second back from the Australian. Meanwhile, Millers teammate Bagnaia was setting fastest lap after fastest lap, and the injured Italian had soon latched himself onto the back of the Viñales-Quartararo-Rins-Mir train. On Lap 7, Quartararo then made his move past Viñales at Turn 14 and his eyes were firmly set on the podium trio just a stones throw up the road.

However, the Frenchmans progress took a swift dive only moments later as he went in a little hot at Turn 4, and it would prove costly as the Championship leader tucked the front and crashed out of fourth place in another 2020 MotoGP™ title twist. Quartararo remounted but was down in P20, over 15 seconds down on Stefan Bradl (Repsol Honda Team). The number 20 would later enter pitlane, suffer a tip off and then retire from the race.

Back up front meanwhile, Morbidelli was still easing round in the lead, although Rossi was able to keep his protg close for the time being. Miller was also holding firm in P3 but Pecco was on the move and the Italian was through on Viñales down the back straight into Turn 11, that Ducati grunt being put to good use.

Bit-by-bit, Morbidelli was starting to pull away from The Doctor. By Lap 12 the gap was creeping up towards a second as Bagnaia and Rins continued to make formidable progress further back, and Miller was clearly starting to struggle. Rins produced the classic Turn 2 Misano move to grab 4th from the number 43 and then, heading down into Turn 8, Pecco was through on the Aussie too. Now, Rins and Pecco had Rossi 1.8 seconds up the road, with The Doctor, in turn, losing touch with Morbidelli. The gap between the Italians was 1.1 seconds and rising but it was Mir who was now the fastest man on track

With 11 laps to go, the gap was down to below a second as the podium scrap started to bubble up in the San Marino sun, and a lap later Rins and Pecco were just half a second down on the nine-time World Champion. The podium battle was well and truly game on.

Into the last 10 laps the riders went, and Mir had got the better of Miller. The sophomore was 1.9 seconds back from the podium scrap, with Rins and Pecco now right on the back of Rossi. The first move was Pecco slicing underneath Rins into the scintillatingly quick Turn 11 and on the next lap, Bagnaia was at it again. This time his good friend Rossi felt the wrath of the Ducati power and Pecco who fractured his leg just over a month ago was up into second and on the way to a maiden podium.

By this point, Mir had closed the gap to the trio ahead of him and was doing so at a significant rate of knots. The gap was 1.4 to his teammate, and it seemed the fight for  the podium was going to heat up even more. The fight for victory, however, was between Morbidelli and only Morbidelli. A dream debut premier class win was in sight as the number 21 was 2.8 seconds up the road, and Bagnaia was
