BEST QUALIFYING OF THE SEASON FOR CANEPA WHO WILL START FROM FOURTH ROW. FABRIZIO SIXTEENTH
Intense day of work for the Pramac Racing riders Niccolò Canepa and Michel Fabrizio. Niccolò has been really constant during qualifying session reaching the top ten half way through the session. For only a few tenths of a second he didn't make it to remain until the end and he finished in twelfth position. Like him also Fabrizio made it to sensibly improve his best lap times today conquering the sixteenth position. The Roman rider obtained really interesting lap times even if this is for him the first time on the Pramac Racing Desmosedici GP9 Sat. Tomorrow morning twenty minutes of warm up to make the last modifications on the bike to result competitive during the Czech Republic GP that will start tomorrow at 2pm local time.
Marco Rigamonti - Niccolò Canepa Track engineer
"I would say a positive day for us. Niccolò conquered his best qualifying position of the season and this demonstrates he is getting better at every race. He is very concentrated and he is riding quite clean: we are trustful that tomorrow he will be able to have a good race. Also Michel in the other side of the garage has improved a lot and we are really happy for him."
Niccolò Canepa - Pramac Racing rider - 12th in 1'58.208
"I am very happy on how things went today. In both sessions we have made it to be competitive maintaining good positions. I am only two tenth of a second from Mika and four from Nicky who is the fastest Ducati rider today. Apart the first five or six riders I believe we can compete with every other rider tomorrow in the race."
Michel Fabrizio - Pramac Racing rider - 16th in 1'58.680
"We have sensibly improve our lap times today. For sure is not easy to get to know and adjust a bike in only three hours of work, but we have done our best and tomorrow in the race we will try to obtain a good result. We have made it to adjust a bit the bike and tomorrow morning in the twenty minutes warm up we will try to make the final modifications on the bike to result even more competitive in the race."
