Kallio and Canepa will look for comeback in the Grand Prix of Spain

Not the happiest qualifying practice ever for the Pramac Racing riders, Mika Kallio and Niccolo Canepa, who have respectively concluded in seventeenth and eighteenth position. The Finnish rider didn't manage to confirm the great performance done during the official test in Jerez last March, where he concluded with the sixth fastest lap time, and will have therefore try another great comeback like last week in Motegi. Niccolo has made it to improve his lap times compared to yesterday and this morning, but he will have to start tomorrow's race from the sixth row. The Italian rider will not give up and will try his best tomorrow to conquer more world championship points.

Fabiano Sterlacchini - Pramac Racing Technical Director

"We have a lot of work to do but we remain trustful for tomorrow's race. The track conditions weren't the same as in the last March test and we found some difficulties. We have tried many things without finding a good solution. We believe that during the warm up we will be able to put together the positive things found in these two days to give a competitive bike to Mika."

Mika Kallio - Pramac Racing rider - 17th in 1'41.238

"Many things didn't go in the right direction today. We have modified the bike many times without any luck. The only thing to do in this moment is analyze the data to understand in which direction we have to go. Today's track condition was different compare to last March, but for sure we didn't expect to be so far behind. Tomorrow it will be for us another comeback race."

Niccolo Canepa - Pramac Racing rider - 18th in 1'41.253

"It went a bit better today even if with the race tyres I still need some more confidence. We have anyway got closer to the other riders and this for sure it will give us morale for tomorrow's race. My learning period is going well and with patience we improve practice after practice. I want to thank my Team member for the great work they are doing for me."
