Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP's Fabio Quartararo and Álex Rins wrapped up the Grand Prix of The Americas Practice session in 17th and 18h place respectively, putting them on the Q1 entry list.

After some hard work during the FP1 session in the morning, Quartararo held a top-10 position in the early stages of the 1h afternoon Practice. However, he struggled to find Q2 pace as the times dropped throughout the session. A 2'02.839s on lap 19/20 put him 17th in the rankings, 1.442s from first.

Rins enjoyed riding at the COTA track again, one of his favourites on the MotoGP calendar, but the Spaniard's Friday didn't play out as hoped. He put in a total of 17 laps in the afternoon Practice. His best time, a 2'02.875s, had him finish the session in 18th place, 1.478s from the top.

On Saturday, the teammates will be back in action for FP2, held from 10:10 - 10:40 (GMT -5). The qualifying sessions will follow from 10:50 - 11:30, and the Sprint will start at 15:00.
