The second day of free practice at the Losail circuit has given great emotion to Octo Pramac Racing. Scott Redding has qualified directly to tomorrow’s Q2 thanks to a sensational FP2, while Danilo Petrucci ended up only 21 thousandths of a second from the Top 10.
Scott has made a real masterpiece in the first practice of the day notching up the fastest lap-time (1’55.085) that allowed him to easily defend the qualification to Q2. The british rider could not improve his crono in FP3 due to a crash without consequences.
After encountering some difficulties in FP2, perhaps due to the different track conditions after the rain fell in the afternoon, Petrux gave the impression to be able to center the Q2 but a bit of traffic on track slowed him. As a result the italian rider had to settle for 11th place with a time of 1’55.435, very close to Valentino Rossi’s tenth place.
