LIVE UPDATES: Friday practice from the San Marino MotoGP at Misano

Coming into the weekend off the back of three consecutive MotoGP wins, Francesco Bagnaia has a chance to create history as the only rider to win four races in succession for Ducati at Misano. 

Hoping to stop the Italian and with it halt Bagnaia’s momentum is reigning world champion Fabio Quartararo. 

A brilliant second place finish for the current championship leader in Austria saw him extend his points lead over Aleix Espargaro. 

The big news leading into the San Marino Grand Prix was that Joan Mir put pen to paper on a two-year deal with Repsol Honda, while Miguel Oliveira and Raul Fernandez have joined the new RNF Aprilia project for 2023. 

Crash.net will bring you all the latest news and updates throughout the Misano MotoGP weekend.
