Zapping Sports Auto Moto F1 Season Calendar 2024
The new MotoGP season started in small groups, Thursday in Sepang. In fact, only seven motorcycles took to the track, bringing together six test riders and one starter, benefiting from his rookie status, namely the young Spaniard Pedro Acosta (GasGas).
This shakedown in Malaysia is primarily intended for testers and rookies, beginner drivers. However, depending on the technical concessions granted to Yamaha and Honda, some much more experienced holders are free to ride until the end of this shakedown, on February 3.
Several owners concerned at Yamaha and Honda
The French clan is doubly concerned by this state of affairs. Thus, according to information communicated by the official MotoGP website, this second day of riding should mark the entry on stage in 2024 of Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha) etc Johann Zarco (Honda).
The Niçois and the Cannois are expected on track this Friday, along with Alex Rins at Yamaha, as well as Joan Mir, Luca Marini and Takaaki Nakagami at Honda. As a reminder, the first of three days of this shakedown resulted in the best time of Dani Pedrosa (KTM), a tenth of a second ahead of Pedro Acosta (GasGas), outgoing Moto2 champion.
