ANALYSIS: Who’s the favourite for the Spanish Grand Prix?

Our 2021 title rivals, Fabio Quartararo and Francesco Bagnaia, have gone toe-to-toe all weekend long at the Red Bull Spanish Grand Prix. He was even below lap record pace with a remarkable 26 laps on his rear tyre in the cooler temperatures of this morning. Bagnaia, meanwhile, has only been able to post six laps under 1:38 with a medium on the rear. First, just like Quartararo did in FP3, Bagnaia was able to be within a tenth of the lap record with 23 laps on the rear. The 2020 World Champion has posted three sub-1:38 laps throughout Saturday, including a 1:37.8 with 17-lap-old tyres in FP3. Despite not managing to find a lap below 1:38, the Spaniard was half a second shy of Quartararo’s 2021 lap record in FP4 with 27 laps on his rear tyre.
