The Thailand Grand Prix starts well for Alma Pramac Racing. Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller confirm the good feelings of the winter test, running very fast since FP1.
In FP2 Danilo Petrucci has to change bike for a technical issue, but he remains focused and pushes hard in the time attack finishing in P5, only 148 thousandths of a second from Andrea Dovizioso’s best-lap.
Jack Miller is constant and after the P4 in FP1 he manages to remain easily in Top 10 in the afternoon. In the time attack, however, the feeling with the front soft tyre is not the best. The Australian rider finishes in P11 but his lap-time is very good (396 thousandths of a second from Dovi).
P5 – Danilo Petrucci
“I am satisfied. We were always fast, always with the leading group. It will not be easy to choose the tyre for the race because of the very high temperature. Tomorrow we will have to do a good job to stay in the 10 in FP3 and conquer one of the first two rows”.
P11 – Jack Miller
“It wasn’t a bad day but I’m a little disappointed with the FP2’s time attack. I expected more from the soft tyres, especially from the front one which didn’t help me in braking areas. All things considered we are still very confident for tomorrow’s qualifying”.
