The Yamaha trait that might just tame “stressful” Portimao
By:

MotoGP's first visit to the Algarve circuit has caught a number of its riders by surprise and, despite the venue's "aggressive" nature, riders have found that a deft touch is more suited to tackling the track. Which, of course, plays into Yamaha's hands...

The fact Dorna Sports, the International Race Teams' Association and everyone else involved in ensuring MotoGP's running managed to get its full 14-race calendar completed in this coronavirus-hit year is a truly amazing feat near-impossible to offer enough gratitude for. That Dorna is capping off its maddest year at one of the world's wildest circuits is merely a very pleasing cherry on top.

MotoGP's first Portuguese Grand Prix since 2012 has taken the series from the butchered version of Estoril it last raced on to the rollercoaster Algarve International Circuit at Portimao.
