FP3 (Practice Conditions: Dry – Air 23°. Ground 34°)
P5 Jack Miller (1’46.478, + 0.422 from P1)
Jack seems to be in great shape and easily gains direct access to Q2 by setting the best overall time in T1
P10 Francesco Bagnaia (1’46.713, +0.657 from P1)
The super laptime set in FP2 would have served Pecco to qualify directly to Q2. The Italian rider improves in the FP3 but the feeling with the bike is not that of Friday.
FP4 (Practice Conditions: Dry – Air 25°. Ground 45°)
P5 Jack Miller (1’47.266, +0.467 from P1)
The race pace is extremely convincing.
P14 Francesco Bagnaia (1’47.817, +0.360 from Top 10, +1.018 from P1)
Pecco’s race pace is also incisive and is in line with the Top 10 group.
Q2 (Practice Conditions: Dry – Air 26°. Ground 47°)
P5 Jack Miller (1’46.029, +0.510 from P1)
Jack gets a valuable fifth place after lapping alone in a very convincing way in the second run.
P8 Francesco Bagnaia (1’46.260, +0.741 from P1)
Pecco wins the best grid position in his MotoGP career. He will start between Vinales and Dovizioso, seventh and ninth respectively.
P8 – Pecco Bagnaia
“We are improving and this is a very important fact. I really enjoyed the set up we did. The goal is to finish the race and try to take the Top 10. I can say that we are competitive and for tomorrow there is a lot of confidence”.
P5 – Jack Miller
“I am quite satisfied also because the race pace is positive. We have also worked hard on the tyres and we have taken important data in view of tomorrow’s choice. In qualifying I was expecting a bit more but the second row is not bad”.
