CANEPA THIRTEENTH DURING INDIANAPOLIS QUALIFYING SESSION. ESPARGARO SIXTEENTH

Qualifying session on dry track after yesterday's rain that has characterized the first free practice session. Pramac Racing riders, Niccolo Canepa and Aleix Espargaro, have worked hard progressively improving during the session valid for the starting grid of the Indianapolis Grand Prix. Niccolo was in eighth position after thirty minutes, but notwithstanding he improved his best lap time he couldn't manage to maintain the position concluding in thirteenth. His teammate has done quite well as first timer in MotoGP qualifying, finishing in sixteenth position. The white and red duo will try to improve tomorrow at the starting of the Indianapolis Grand Prix that will start at 3pm local time.

Niccolo Canepa - Pramac Racing rider - 13th in 1'41.910

"Unluckily I made a mistake as I didn't change the front tyre that already had more than twenty-five laps on it. I wanted to follow someone at the end of the session, but if I had entered the box I would have lost too much time. Anyway we will start from an acceptable position on the starting grid. I want to do really well here: this is a track that I like and I know I can have fun on it. This will be a really important race for me."

Aleix Espargaro - Pramac Racing rider - 16th in 1'42.577

"Today the weather helped us to ride for many laps. My feeling with the bike has improved even if I am not too happy: I hoped to do better in the classification. We have found a problem with the rear brake that has limited our performances. I wanted to ride with faster riders in the last couple of laps but I couldn't make it. I feel good on the bike and I believe we can have a good race tomorrow. We will have to make a good start to stay with other riders and fight for good positions."
