Marquez and two Yamahas split by 0.076 on Sunday morning

The Repsol Honda Team rider topped MotoGP™ Warm Up as we look forward to the opening race of 2020

Third place on the grid Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) began Sunday at the Gran Premio Red Bull de España by going fastest in MotoGP™ Warm Up. The reigning World Champion set a 1:37.883 to finish 0.051 ahead of Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT), with Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) just 0.076 shy as we now get set to go racing.

Track temperatures were sitting as a cool 32 degrees on Sunday morning, a good 20 degrees lower than what the MotoGP™ riders look set to endure at 14:00 local time. Completing the top five in Warm Up was LCR Honda Idemitsu’s Takaaki Nakagami, with Danilo Petrucci (Ducati Team) fifth as 0.9 seconds covered the top 19.

At the end of the session, Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) took a nasty tumble at Turn 8. The front washed out from underneath the Brit but thankfully Crutchlow was back up on his feet, albeit slowly. The number 35 went to the medical centre for a check-up, before the team confirmed he has headed to Jerez hospital for further checks. 

It’s time to go racing. MotoE™, Moto3™, Moto2™ and then the main event – MotoGP™. Be in front of your TVs at 2pm (GMT+2) to see who will take the first 25-point haul of 2020.
