Yonny Hernandez is confirms himself.
This Friday at Aragon the Pramac Racing Team starts the comparison with the new bike, that made it’s debut in the FP1, the new Ducati GP 14.2 led the session ridden by Andrea Iannone. Yonny Hernandez, who is celebrating one year with the team, shows how much he has improved by riding constantly close to the top ten.
In the morning practice session Andrea Iannone alternated the GP14 with GP 14.2, which he used ending the session in the first place. In the afternoon he continued testing the new bike, finishing fourth with the lap time of 1'48.747. So far, the differences in performance between the two Ducati’s are not big, even if Andrea prefers the riding position offered by GP 14.2. Tomorrow it will be important to understand how to improve the new Ducati evolution with the goal to make it start for it’s first race on Sunday.
In the morning Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing) crashed, fortunately without any physical consequence. Overall Yonny has shown to have good continuity and to be in a good shape, finishing the morning session in thirteenth position and the afternoon in the twelfth with a lap time of 1.49.650. Yonny is very confident for tomorrow's qualifying and hopes to qualify for the QP2.
Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing): "Today was a positive day for us. This morning during the first free practice session, I initially used the GP14 and then the GP14.2 finishing the round in first place. In the afternoon I continued the comparison between the two bikes putting down similar lap times with both. For now I am better on the new evolution because it has more room to move more freely in the seat. I have to analyze “braking” with my team because with the new bike I have to use more force on the brake lever compared to the GP 14 Tomorrow we will do some tests to see what causes this situation. "
Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing): "I'm glad I was able to improve in FP2 after the crash in the first round. I am pleased to be able to go faster than Dovi's best time done last year with this bike. I have a good feeling with the bike and tomorrow I want to be able to get back into Q2. I can say that after a year I was able to improve myself in many ways! "
