Pol Espargaro heads Yamaha trio in MotoGP™ Warm Up

KTM set the pace on Sunday morning in the premier class, but the Yamahas are in close pursuit

A 1:57.037 gave Pol Espargaro (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) the number one spot on the MotoGP™ Monster Energy Czech Republic Grand Prix Warm Up timesheets as the KTM rider heads a trio of Yamahas ahead of the race. Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) and Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) sit second and third.


That leading three were covered by just 0.037 on Sunday morning as Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT) sat 0.100 off Pol Espargaro’s time in fourth, with Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) having another strong showing to finish 5th – KTM looking mighty again here in Brno.

It really is going to be a race of attrition at the Czech GP as the last handful of laps will be a journey into the unknown for the premier class. How will those rear tyres hold up? What pace will be set at the front and what sort of attack can the likes of Jack Miller (Pramac Racing) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) mount from P14 and P18 on the grid? And let’s not forget the leading Ducati on the grid – Johann Zarco (Esponsorama Racing). The Frenchman will be hoping he can stay at the front for as long as possible, but that’s going to be far from an easy task.


Qualifying was MotoGP™ at its unpredictable best. Sunday will be the same. The third MotoGP™ race of 2020 kicks off at 14:00 local time (GMT+2) – do not miss it!
