The warmup

With places on the grid settled, the riders all set to ride and the Grand Prix mere hours away, race day also sees the riders from all three classes undergoing a morning warmup.

20 minutes is all that is allowed for the riders to reacquaint themselves with their bikes, run through their lines and assess their form. It is also a chance for the mechanics to go through changes in wheels, look at the spare bike's set up and refuel ahead of the race.

In the following video, we go behind the scenes with Fortuna Honda for the entire warmup at last Sunday's Grand Prix, followed by an interview with Team Manager Fausto Gresini in which he talks about the importance of the procedure.
