Pecco finishes just three thousandths of a second off the Q2. Jack has no luck with the rear tyre. The qualifying for the Octo GP di San Marino e della Rimini Riviera do not give high lights to FIAMM Pramac Racing as Bagnaia and Miller do not manage to qualify to Q2.
In the second run of Q1 Pecco pushes hard and after the T2 he is virtually qualified. In the last two sectors, however, the Italian rider loses two tenths and crosses the finish line just 3 thousandths of a second from Q2. Bagnaia will start in 13th position.
In the Q1 Jack doesn’t find a feeling with the tyres despite the good improvements in FP4. After a good first run Miller is not able to be competitive in the final time attack. The Australian will start tomorrow from row 6 (P16).
P13 – Pecco Bagnaia
I can’t be angry for three thousandths of a second. The important thing is that is the feeling in the FP1 was good. We tried, I gave it my all. My time would have been good in Q2 too. We continue to have big traction problems and we will have to try to work on that.
P16 – Jack Miller
I’ve never been able to find a feeling with the tyre. After the Fp4 the feeling was positive but in Q1 we struggled a lot with the grip on the rear. Let’s see what happens tomorrow but it will certainly be a difficult race. I’ll try to do my best anyway, as always.
