Can anyone stop the Yamahas in San Marino?

It was pure dominance from Yamaha in qualifying at the Gran Premio Lenovo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. The duo looks very comfortable in the mid 1:32s on used front tyres and slightly used rear tyres, with Quartararo looking ready to set 1:32.4-1:32.7 in the early stages of the race. To compare the other two Yamaha riders in FP4, Morbidelli’s best on a new rear tyre was a 1:32.8, Rossi’s was a 1:33.0. Is there anyone from another manufacturer that can take the challenge to Yamaha? Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) set a 1:32.9 on a 15-lap old rear tyre in FP4, with teammate Alex Rins posting a 1:32.8 on a nine-lap old rear tyre – again, promising, but the Suzukis are on Row 3.
