A good Saturday for Danilo Petrucci, who gives Octo Pramac Racing the third row in the “Gran Premio of San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini”. Scott can’t find the right feeling in Q1 and ends in 19th position.
After dominating Friday’s free practice, Petrux shows that he is also in confidence on the qualifying Saturday of his “Home GP”. After having encountered some difficulties in the Fp3, also due to a strong wind, the rider from Terni found a good feeling in the Fp4. In Q2, he fought until the last lap for the second row and then finished in eighth position, 5 thousandths of a second behind Pedrosa and 3 tenths of a tenth from the front row.
After Friday’s difficulties, Scott was not able to be competitive during the Q1 and had to settle for the seventh row with a time of 1’34.132.
