Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix - Qualifying

#AustralianGP Quali. Strong winds force track action cancellation. Qualifying for Pramac Generac Australian GP to run after warm up tomorrow.

Saturday in Phillip Island will be remembered for the strong wind that first made the FP3 prohibitive (only 12 riders completed a few laps) and then forced the Race Direction to stop the FP4 to summon the riders in safety commission. For understandable safety reasons, the decision was made to cancel the qualifying for the Pramac Generac Australian Motorcycle GP. As a result, Q1 and Q2 will be held tomorrow morning after the warm-up. Jack Miller will be directly qualified to Q2 thanks to the fifth fastest time set in FP2 as Francesco Bagnaia will have to go through the Q1.

Pecco Bagnaia

I risked crashing like Olivera and I think it was very important to go immediately to the Safety Commission and discuss. There were obviously differing opinions, but the right decision was taken. I hope the weather is better tomorrow and above all that the wind is not so strong.

Jack Miller

I think safety is the most important thing. That’s why I say that the right decision was made as the wind was really strong. Tomorrow the weather should be better even though it is always difficult to predict what will happen in Phillip Island.
