FP1 (Practice conditions: Dry. Air 18°. Ground 23).
P10 Jack Miller (2’01.535, + 1.583 from P1)
P14 Francesco Bagnaia (2’01.852, + 1.900 from P1)
FP2 (Practice conditions: Dry. Air 25°. Ground 40°)
P7 Jack Miller (2’00.428, +0.916 from P1)
Following a good time attack, the Australian conquers the 7th position (P9 in the combined standings) that would allow him to qualify directly to Q2 in case of rain tomorrow morning.
P15 Francesco Bagnaia (2’00.788, +1.312 from P1)
Pecco is incisive on the race pace with the rear hard tyre and in the time attack he lowers his time set in FP1 by more than a second despite finding traffic in the second flying lap. The Top 10 is very close – less than 2 tenths of a second.
P16 – Pecco Bagnaia
First of all I would like to congratulate Silverstone on the new asphalt. The circuit is practically a billiards and it is nice for us rider to have this feeling. I am also satisfied with what we have done today. We worked well on the set up and with the tyres.
P9 – Jack Miller
We did a good job today especially on the race pace and exploring many combinations of tires. I am satisfied with the way things went. In tomorrow morning’s FP3 we will focus on the time attack to try to qualify directly for Q2. The asphalt? They did a really great job.
