The Pramac Racing Team had to settle for starting from tenth position on the grid for tomorrow's race.
Good day despite the crash on the last lap of the Q2, Andrea Iannone was facing an outstanding lap that would have earned him at least the first row, but the crash in turn 15 did not allow him to finish the last lap available. The Pramac Racing Team had to settle for starting from tenth position on the grid for tomorrow's race.
The work, however, took place during the two practice sessions gave good results, the bike is now less rough and more intuitive entering the turns. This important progress give hope for being able to fight for top positions in the race tomorrow.
Yonny Hernandez finishes the FP3 in eleventh position and loses direct access to the QP2 for just 26 milliseconds. The EnergyTI Pramac Racing rider significantly improves the lap time from yesterday but does not hold the position. The Q1 starts with a slight drizzle but Yonny, however, pushes the as hard as he can, during his final lap he had to slow down because of the flags red / yellow flag signaling slippery track and loses the opportunity to improve his time.
Yonny therefore will start from the thirteenth position, however, that will allow him to stay in the colse to the riders in the top ten from the first laps of the race.
Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing): "Even if I crashed I'm happy with the work done today. I arrived at T3 with the "red helmet" and I had the chance to close the Q2 in the front row but unfortunately I crashed. This morning I struggled a lot to ride the bike it was very difficult to go into the curves, for qualifying we found a setting more suited to my driving style. For tomorrow's race we are extremely positive and I think I can do a good result, it will be important to make a good start. "
Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing): "I was hoping to do a little better in qualifying, but on the last lap I closed the throttle when I saw the yellow/red flag. Tomorrow morning I will try a few more things to be a little faster. I'm confident because I like this track and we have improved the bike a little more from yesterday. "
