First day in Portimao, which this Sunday will see the last race of the 2020 MotoGP Championship at the Algarve International circuit.
At the end of the first day Jack is in top ten and Pecco fifteenth in the combined standings.
Jack Miller and his Team used the first day of free practice to adapt his Ducati to the track working on the set up and electronics.
In the afternoon session Miller continued the work started in the FP1, during the fourth and final run the Australian rider did the time attack by setting his best time of 1:39.820, a time that allows Jack to close the day in ninth position.
Pecco Bagnaia as his team mate took advantage of Friday’s free practice to work on the set-up trying to find the best possible feeling on the track.
In the FP2 he continued to work hard, Pecco was very fast and managed to be in the top ten for almost the whole session.
He closed in fifteenth position with a time of 1:39.977 only 1 tenth from the top ten.
I had a really great time today.
In the afternoon I felt much better and we took a step forward, i was very fast for all the FP2.
I have very good feelings about the track and the bike, I like it very much, I am very satisfied with the work we are doing.
Definitely a positive day,
I like the track very much and I had a lot of fun, there are some very difficult points like turn one, eight and nine. As a first day I feel very satisfied and have a good feeling with the bike.
We hope to do well tomorrow too.
