Quartararo completes a perfect sweep of the Friday timesheets during day one of the Valencia MotoGP season finale.

Rossi, who fell at Turn 4 this morning, fell at Turn 10 early in the afternoon session. Miller was another afternoon faller, at the Turn 2 hairpin.

Lorenzo is taking part in his final MotoGP event before retirement. 2020 MotoGP rookie Iker Lecuona is making an early Tech3 KTM debut in place of the injured Miguel Oliveira.

The Ducati Team starts the season finale with a two-point lead over Repsol Honda in the Teams’ Championship.
