The Pramac Racing Team and his rider, Héctor Barberà, achieved the 7th spot on the grid in today’s qualifying session at the Malaysian Grand Prix scheduled for tomorrow at 10:00 GMT.
Setting a best lap time of 2’01.294, the Spaniard will start from a promising third row, putting in for a strong performance for tomorrow’s 20 laps race.
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.”
