Martin in favor of longer free practice

Pramac rider Jorge Martin, spoke to his team’s official channels at the end of the first free practice session in Motegi, Japan, the quintultimate round of the Motomondiale.

The Spaniard finished with the 15th fastest time, in what was his first time at the Japanese circuit since joining MotoGp in 2021.

Martin commented on the new free practice format, which lasted 75 minutes: “I like this new format, I like the idea of having longer sessions.”

Then the 1998-class centaur explained what he focused on on this first day on the track, “Today we focused on trying to get familiar with the track and tried to change something on the front. Tomorrow hoping it doesn’t rain we will try to get into Q2.”

MotoGP is the top category in circuit racing motorcycle championships. This category came into existence in 2002, replacing the 500 class, following the change in the displacement regulations. Currently, 24 riders take part in the MotoGp championship, with two riders per team.
