The week end of the #GermanGP has started in a promising way for Octo Pramac Racing, that finishes Friday’s free practices with both riders in the Top 10. A very important result that could allow both Scott and Petrux to qualify directly in Q2 in case of rain tomorrow.
Danilo Petrucci lapped consistently throughout the all day of activity at the Sachsenring circuit. The rider from Terni did well in FP1 with dry conditions ending with a lap time of 121.992, only 3 tenths of a second from the best lap of Andrea Dovizioso. Petrux was very fast also in wet-FP2 remaining in the top positions, ending up with the fourth position but with the same lap time of Pedrosa (3rd).
For Scott it was a very good start of the journey with a lap time of 1’22.075 that allowed him to end in the Top 10, 4 tenth of a second behind Andrea Dovizioso. Unfortunately, a crash in the last lap of FP1 didn’t allowed him to use the bike-1 in FP2. In the afternoon the English rider couldn’t find the ideal condition to express himself and he preferred not to risk.
