FP1 (Practice conditions Dry. Air 20°. Ground 26°)
P7 Jack Miller (1’22.365, + 0.975 from P1)
Jack gets off to a good start at Sachsenring and stays firmly inside the Top 10.
P18 Francesco Bagnaia (1’22.729, +0.290 from Top 10, + 1.339 from P1)
Pecco takes confidence after the first run and runs with a pace very close to the Top 10. Unfortunately, a bad crash limits him in the final part of FP1
FP2 (Practice conditions Dry. Air 26°. Ground 41°)
P7 Jack Miller (1’21.442, +0.737 from P1)
The race pace with the hard rubber is convincing. In the time attack Jack finds a lot of traffic on the track but in the third flying lap with the soft tire he manages to set a good lap time that allows him to easily stay in the Top 10.
NC Francesco Bagnaia
After the end of FP1, Pecco was taken to Chemnitz for medical examinations. The CT scan showed no complications. Bagnaia will be back on track for the FP3 tomorrow.
P18 – Pecco Bagnaia
Pecco’s final position is referred to FP1 standings
P7 – Jack Miller
“I can’t say this has been an ideal day. Especially in the time attack, I wasn’t able to make the most of the soft tyre. I found some traffic on track but the feeling with the rear tyre was not the best. I was only able to improve by a tenth of a second the time I set with the hard tyre at the very start. Let’s try to improve tomorrow”.
