Hernandez almost in Q2
Exciting qualifications for the Pramac Racing Team once again Andrea Iannone will start the race in the front row, this time riding the new GP 14.2. Yonny Hernandez instead qualifies thirteenth after Q1.
Andrea Iannone confirms himself once again the showman of qualifying, gaining for the second time in a row the first row. Tomorrow Andrea will start from third position thanks to the fantastic lap time of 1.47.685. The result is exciting because it was obtained with authority, alone, without the help of a slip stream.
What can I say! I'm happy It’s another front row...
In Aragon it is also vital to start from the front due to the short distance between the starting line and the first turn Andrea is thrilled with his performance and continuity that he is having in Q2. The hope is high to replicate the good results of Misano and also to do better if the GP 14.2 proves to be competitive in the race as well.
In qualifications Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing), missed for a hair access to Q2 taken away by Barbera right under the checkered flag. Despite the good lap time obtained (1.49.051) Yonny settled to start from thirteenth position. The Colombian rider anyway today showed all his grit and tenacity, tacking on the Q1 after he crashed during FP4. Yonny clearly is not very happy with his result, but it is certain that in the race can fight for better positions.
Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing): "What can I say! I'm happy It’s another front row, I put down a great lap time and this time alone. We knew that using the soft tire we had the potential to do a good qualification. Too bad for the FP4 because at the beginning of the session we decided to try a different setting but it did not give me the same feeling as the previous one, I could have been a little faster. I'm happy with the race pace, I think tomorrow we can point for a good result. "
Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing): "I'm happy I was able to compete again for Q2 and I almost made it! I'm sorry didn’t get in but I managed to make my lap time alone and this is important. Tomorrow if I make a good start I can point to re-enter the top ten. It will not be easy because this is a very fast track and the official bikes accelerate more than mine on the straight gaining a few tenths compared to me. I'm sorry for the crash, but I have a good feeling and I point to do well. "
