Defending champion and current MotoGP points leader Fabio Quartarara (Yamaha) broke the Misano lap record today to top the timesheets at the end of the 2-day official test. More importantly for Quartararo, he tested the new engine designed for next year (Yamaha cannot change its engine this year) and found significant improvements in acceleration and top speed. Quartararo said this is the first iteration of the 2023 engine, and that Yamaha engineers believe they can find even more power before the 2023 races begin. The top speed of the Quartararo was already competitive with the Ducatis at this test.

Marc Marquez returned to this test on his MotoGP Honda after 4 months of recovery from his fourth operation on his right hand. Impressively, he completed 100 laps in 2 days and was 13th fastest. He left open the possibility of racing in Aragon in 2 weeks.
