Our Malaysian rider, Hafizh Syahrin (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) again showed everyone that he’s the fastest MotoGP by qualifying in P14 for tonight’s race.
The Moto3 race will start at 5.00pm (local time) followed by Moto2 at 6.20pm and MotoGP at 8.00pm. Will Zarco triumph in front of his home fans or will Marquez disappoint the Frenchman once again by taking yet another win for the season? Our advice? Don’t forget to watch the race!
