The free practices of the Grand Prix of Le Mans end with a good result for Jack Miller – 10th in the combined standing – who would be directly qualified to Q2 in case of rain tomorrow. Constant progress for Pecco (13th after Friday’s free practices) who is very close to the Top 10 and seems to be in great confidence.
FP1 (Practice Conditions: Dry – Air 15° – Ground 26°)
P7 Jack Miller (1’32.238, +0.252 from P1)
Extremely incisive start for Jack who stays in first position for a long time. The Australian finished seventh but is among the few not to have used the soft rubber at the rear.
P13 Francesco Bagnaia (1’32.982, +0.222 from Top 10, +0.996 from P1)
After a small technical issue in the first run, lap after lap Pecco becomes familiar with the circuit of Le Mans and finishes very close to the Top 10.
FP2 (Practice Conditions: Dry – Air 20° – Ground 31°)
P12 Francesco Bagnaia (1’32.285, +0.046 from Top 10, +0.875 from P1)
As in FP1, Pecco improves lap by lap managing to stay closer to the Top 10. In the time attack, however, he can not find the ideal conditions to get the top 10 and he will be hoping for good weather tomorrow to try to win the Q2.
P16 Jack Miller (1’32.573, +0.364 from Top 10, +1.145 from P1)
It was a difficult session for Jack, who crashed in the first lap and was forced to stay in the pits for 15 minutes. The team did a great job allowing him to return to the track with bike 1 but the feeling is not the same as in the morning. The lap time of the FP1 still allows him to finish in the Top 10.
P13 – Pecco Bagnaia
“I’m satisfied. The race pace is good and I feel that we are making important progress. It’s a shame about the time attack: I found some traffic on track and I couldn’t push as hard as I could. The feeling is very positive. We’ll try again tomorrow morning “.
P10 – Jack Miller
“It was a very strange crash. I honestly didn’t really understand what happened. After the crash the feeling with the bike was not the same as I started to feel some vibrations. We still managed to take the Top 10 and this could be important in view of qualifying”
