The torrid heat of the TT Circuit does not help the performance of the Ducati. Jack wins the direct qualification to Q2 after a good FP3 but he can’t find the right grip to be effective in the time attack. The Australian rider will start from P10 tomorrow. Pecco manages to take another step forward after free practices. In Q1 he is in second position after the first run but on the last lap, Pol Espargaro takes the qualification to Q2 for only 51 thousandths of a second.
P13 – Pecco Bagnaia
We have made progress in every session. We still need something, especially in two areas of the circuit. We have to work to see where we can find those 3-4 tenths we need to be competitive tomorrow.
P10 – Jack Miller
I can’t be satisfied with the qualifying. To be honest, I thought I could do better. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any grip on the soft tyres. The race pace with the hard tyre, however, is very good. We can have a good race tomorrow.
