Héctor struggled a little with some chattering problems, but these small issue seems to be no cause for concern for the Pramac Racing Team, that tomorrow will use also the twenty-minute warm up to adjust the bike set up, trying to help Héctor to fight for a brilliant result.

Héctor Barberà – Pramac Racing Team Rider – 7th place in 2’01.294: “I’m very happy about today. The Sepang circuit is one of my favourite tracks and I always went quite fast here. I achieved a good result in today’s qualifying session, finding a good pace.

The 7th place of today, allows me to arrive on the grid tomorrow, with confidence to battle for a great race and it was what I needed.

I’m feeling good on my Ducati and I know we can hunt for one of our best results, in this 2012 MotoGP season.

Today I rode with the same lap times I set during the winter test (even if during the preseason test we found different weather conditions compared this weekend) and this improved a lot my confidence for tomorrow’s race.”
