After the memorable podium conquered five days ago in the Grand Prix of Italy, Danilo Petrucci confirms to be in excellent shape and ends up the first day of activity on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in fifth. Positive start also for Scott who finishes in the 12th place.
Following the FP1 affected by light rain, in the FP2 of the Grand Prix of Catalunya Danilo Petrucci first works on the tires in sight of the race and then laps very fast notching up a superb lap-time that places him in P5 only 51 milliseconds from the hypothetical first row.
Scott Redding experienced some problem of chattering that did not allow him to get the most out of time attack. But the English rider has seemed incisive on race pace since the morning. The lap-time of 1’45.375 allows him to finish very close to Valentino Rossi’s tenth place.
