Francesco Bagnaia is the dominator the Mugello’s Friday. The Italian rider gives great satisfaction to Lamborghini Pramac Racing by finishing a spectacular time attack in FP2. Jack is in great shape and after an extremely convincing FP1 he is very strong in FP2 but finds in the time attack some riders who slow down dangerously and crashes.
FP1 (Practice Conditions: Dry. Air 20°. Ground 31°)
P6 Jack Miller (1’47.814, + 0.256 from P1)
Amazing FP1 with six riders in 256 thousandths of a second. Jack is very strong in T4 but he has to find a better feeling in T3 where he loses 2 tenths of a second in his fast lap.
P17 Francesco Bagnaia (1’48.532, +0.318 from Top 10, +0.974 from P1)
Pecco improves lap after lap and is very close to the 10th place of Andrea Dovizioso. The final position is not indicative as in the FP1 there were 18 riders within 1 second.
FP2 (Practice conditions: Dry. Air 23°. Ground 45°)
P1 Francesco Bagnaia (1,46,732)
Pecco’s time attack is fantastic and allows the Italian rider to finish a sensational Friday in P1. Extremely positive news also from the race pace.
P9 Jack Miller (1’47.185, +0.453 from P1)
Jack is also strong in the FP2 and is for most of the session the fastest after Marquez. In the time attack, however, he crashes after having found some riders to hinder his trajectory.
P1 – Pecco Bagnaia
I’m very happy because the work we’re doing is paying off. We have improved in the last races and the feeling was very good already in the FP1. The time attack came well and that’s why I’m satisfied. Tomorrow it will be very important to qualify directly for the Q2.
P9 – Jack Miller
I was going very fast in the time attack but I found some riders who were slowing down and I crashed. I am still very satisfied because the feeling is extremely positive and the race pace is good. Tomorrow I will give my best in FP3 to qualify directly to Q2. I’m confident.
