FIRST LAPS ON ARAGON'S TRACK FOR THE PRAMAC RACING TEAM RIDERS
The rain has affected the debut of the MotoGP riders and Pramac Racing Team riders on Aragon's track. During the course of today's second free practice riders have not been able to establish under dry ground conditions, but they still took the way to the track to improve their feeling with the new Spanish track. For tomorrow the weather forecast promised better conditions. Aleix Espargarò did not have a lucky day, in addition to this afternoon's rain, during the first free practice he slipped contusing his right foot. The Spaniard has still gritted his teeth and finished the day's work on the track without too many complications. Tomorrow two more practice sessions will be available for the "white and green" rider with the departure of the official session that will decide the starting grid scheduled at 2.05 pm local time.
Fabiano Sterlacchini - Pramac Racing Technical Director
"From a day like this you cannot ask for much. The first free practice was used to study the track while this afternoon water conditions have limited the performance of all riders. From tomorrow the condition should return serene and I'm confident that our riders can get good results. We need to gain a good position on the starting grid: if it will be like this, I am sure that our riders will give us a good race performance. "
Aleix Espargarò - Pramac Racing Team - 13th best time in 1'52.752
"This morning slip haven't certainly helped me even if I don't feel pain in my right foot when I ride my bike. Too bad for the rain because it would have been important for us to do as many laps as we could on a dry track. From tomorrow, the climate situation should be better and hopefully things will be also better for us. "
Mika Kallio - Pramac Racing Team - 15th best time in 1'53 .190
"I like this track, too bad that the weather had ruined a bit the work we have planned. Weather forecasts give good conditions for tomorrow and Sunday, so we'll start our work almost from the beginning. Up to this moment has been a strange season for me and I have to absolutely prove my value. This weekend I will give it all."
