Top 5 things we learnt from the 2023 Portimao Test

So that’s it, 2023 pre-season testing is officially in the history books. However, only one person was able to set a 1:37s lap time across the two days of testing – and it was the #1 plated 2022 King. At the end of the penultimate day, this was still a massive issue. But gains were found on the final day of testing, with Quartararo and Yamaha basically going backwards to make a step forwards. After a below-par Sepang Test, the Portimao Test is where things started to click for KTM – and just in the nick of time too. Nothing new was brought to the table for the last two days of testing, it was all about their riders trying to find their own pathway to success.
