This Sunday will see MotoGP and F1 hold a joint minute of silence to remember double motorcycle world champion and MotoGP team owner Fausto Gresini.

Gresini, who was born in the city of Imola, where the F1 Grand Prix is taking place this weekend, sadly passed away earlier this year after a lengthy battle with complications caused by Covid-19.

As a tribute, the minute of silence will be observed during both the Formula 1 and MotoGP events on Sunday, at 13:42 in Imola and 12:42 in Portimao.

At the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali will be joined in parc ferme by members of Gresini’s family to observe the minute of silence.

At the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, venue for this weekend's Portuguese MotoGP, the bikes, riders and team members from the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 class Gresini teams will gather in front of the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini box ahead of the MotoGP race, joined by FIM President Jorge Viegas and Dorna Sports CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta, to pay their respects.
