Yamaha designó esta semana a Gerloff como sustituto de Valentino Rossi tras volver a dar positivo por coronavirus en el último test PCR que realizó. No obstante, el italiano, que ya se perdió las dos carreras en Aragón por este motivo, quiso apurar los plazos para estar presente en Valencia y volvió a pasar otro test el jueves.

Así, el estreno de Gerloff estuvo en el aire hasta este mismo viernes por la mañana después de que Il dottore diera negativo y recibiera el permiso para viajar a Valencia. A la espera del segundo negativo que le permitiera el acceso al paddock, Yamaha hizo debutar al estadounidense en el FP1 del Gran Premio de Europa.

Gerloff acabó 16º, a 1,582 segundos de Jack Miller, en una sesión pasada por agua. El piloto de Spring (Texas) dio un total de 21 vueltas, antes de volver a tomar parte en el FP2, donde fue 19º a 1,579 del australiano otra vez.

"¡Qué experiencia! Fue increíble pilotar la YZR-M1. Hay tantas cosas que son increíbles en la moto. Me recuerda a la R1, pero al mismo tiempo son diferentes, es otro nivel de moto. Fue genial! Gracias a Yamaha por darme la oportunidad, veremos qué pasa en la segunda sesión. Estoy muy contento de estar aquí", dijo Gerloff tras el estreno.

Lío en Yamaha:

Confirmado: Viñales abre el sexto motor y saldrá desde el pitlane el domingo Confirmada la sanción a Yamaha por infringir el reglamento de motores Ducati y Suzuki explican su decisión de no recurrir la sanción a Yamaha

El piloto de 25 años, que reside en Santpedor (Barcelona), pone fin así a una racha de cuatro años sin estadounidenses en MotoGP, desde que Nicky Hayden participó en el Gran Premio de Australia de 2016.

En todo caso, después de que Rossi haya vuelto a dar negativo en el test PCR que se realizó este viernes, el italiano volverá a subirse a la M1 y Gerloff tendrá que ver el resto del Gran Premio desde el box.
