What you might have missed from Thursday at Valencia

The paddock is abuzz ahead of two title-deciding races at Circuit Ricardo Tormo this weekend

It’s time for #TheDecider and, naturally, there was plenty of focus on the fight for the MotoGP™ World Championship between Francesco Bagnaia and Fabio Quartararo. We got the inside word from the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ camp thanks to Maio Meregalli in the Last on the Brakes podcast, and heard from Quartararo about his post-season surgery plans. However, that was not all the news from the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, with even on-track action in MiniGP on the Thursday before the Grand Prix field is let loose for the final round of the season.

Yamaha Team Director Maio Meregalli joined Last on the Brakes to preview #TheDecider and how the Iwata factory can challenge Ducati.

The two title contenders were out on track on Thursday as they prepare for one of the biggest weekends of their lives at #TheDecider.

The MotoGP™ Legend will be present at #TheDecider, and his protégé hopes he’ll play a role as he targets a maiden World Championship.

The Frenchman sustained a finger injury after a crash in Malaysia, and will go under the knife post-Valencia to rectify the issue.

Alberto Puig and Marc Marquez discuss their plans to test new biofuels from Repsol in preparation for 2024.

Augusto Fernandez and Ai Ogura take to the stage to preview the weekend ahead, where one of them will be crowned World Champion.

Ana Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports Talent Promotion Director, Jorge Viegas, FIM President, and Fabio Quartararo reflect on a superb day of racing.
