GOOD DEBUT FOR ESPARGARO AT INDY. CANEPA SEVENTEENTH

Good debut for the new Pramac Racing rider, Aleix Espargaro, who has concluded his first practice session valid for the Indianapolis Grand Prix with the fifteenth fastest lap time. Rain has characterized today's session, but the Spanish rider, who has stepped on the Ducati Desmosedici GP9 Sat for the first time, has easily adapted to the bike conquering a good result. His teammate, Niccolo Canepa, has encountered some difficulties not making it to push to the limit as he didn't find the right feeling with the rear part of the bike. The Italian rider will try to make up for it tomorrow in the two hours of practice available.

Aleix Espargaro - Pramac Racing rider

"Tonight I think I woke up about one hundred times, I was so excited. Now I am a bit more relaxed. It has been a fantastic experience. It would have probably be better ride for my first time on the Ducati Desmosedici GP9 with dry track, but at the end things went well. I found my self at ease since the first laps. It has an impressive acceleration but tomorrow, when the track should be dry, I would have a clearer idea of what this bike can do. I am very happy to have this opportunity and I will do all I can to obtain the best result possible."

Niccolo Canepa - Pramac Racing rider

"Today's weather has complicated the work we have planned. Due to the limited number of tyres we have at our disposal, I preferred to use only one set of wet tyre today so that I would have more in case I would need them when it really counts. The left side of the rear tyre gotten worst and I couldn't manage to improve. Tomorrow I will surely be able to do better: this will be for me a really important race."
