Jack got off to a great start. The Australian finished 5th the FP1, just 57 thousandths of a second behind Vinales’s P2, with the best T3 overall.
Pecco immediately found the right feeling with his Ducati Desmosedici GP and in FP1 obtained an incisive 10th place, going very fast in the T1 (fourth fastest time overall).
In the FP2 Jack confirmed the good feeling of the morning and got an excellent fourth place that would allow him to secure direct qualification to Q2 in case of rain tomorrow.
Pecco managed to lower the FP1 time by more than six tenths of a second but he made a small mistake in T4 that didn’t allow him to confirm himself in the Top 10 for only 60 thousandths of a second.
Here are the numbers of the free practice of the Thailand Grand Prix.

P 12 Francesco Bagnaia (1’31.154, +0.060 from Top 10, +0.750 from P1)
P12 – Pecco Bagnaia
It’s one of the best Fridays of the last weekends. I felt good right from the start this morning and the gap to the front has decreased significantly. Unfortunately in the time attack I made a mistake in the last corner that made me lose two tenths of a second. The feeling is positive.
P4 – Jack Miller
The feeling is good and the bike is working very well. We tried some solutions and it was an intense day of work. The weather forecast is not good for tomorrow. That’s why our goal today was to be in the Top 10, and we have achieved it convincingly.
