Season bursts back into life as Quartararo and Morbidelli head for Brno

2019-07-30 08:56
The PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team duo of Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli are raring to get the MotoGP season back underway at this weekend’s Czech Grand Prix at the Automotodrom Brno as the championship bursts back into life. The tenth round of the 2019 season comes three weeks since the championship broke up for the summer break after the German Grand Prix.

Quartararo, who currently sits eighth in the championship, will be looking to bounce back strongly in Brno after not scoring points last time out at the Sachsenring. However, with plenty of time to recover from the surgery he underwent in May to cure arm pump issues, he’s confident that he’ll be able to return to the form that has seen him take two podiums already this year when action gets underway in Brno.

Team-mate Morbidelli is also looking forward to a strong weekend, to build on his strong run of form that has left him sitting in 11th in the championship. Heading to a circuit that suits both his style and the Yamaha YZR-M1, he’s confident that he can return to the top ten come Sunday’s race.

Action at the Automotodrom Brno gets underway on Friday 2nd August with free practice starting at 0955 local time (1555 Malaysian time) and the race starting at 1400 local time (2000 Malaysian time) on Sunday 4th August.
