The first day of Free Practice at the Red Bull Ring is ended in a good way for Pramac Racing.
The Team will attend the Austrian GP with Jack Miller and Michele Pirro who will replace Pecco Bagnaia,who was injured last week in Brno.
In the combinate standing, Jack Miller and Michele Pirro conquered the eighth and seventeenth position.
A good start for Jack Miller, who finished the FP1 in P8. Due to the rain during the FP2, Jack was able to get back on track only 7 min from the end of the session, but the Australian rider pushed very fast and he took the leadership in the FP2.
Michele Pirro – who had been missing on this track for 4 years – during the FP1 tried to get more confident with the bike.
The Italian rider had a good feeling since the beginning, unfortunately, the weather conditions during the FP2 did not allow Michele to maximize the session this afternoon.
During the FP1 I tried to get more confident with the track and the bike,
we understood the weak points and tomorrow we will try to make another step.
The first impact was definitely positive, the bad weather didn’t allow us to use like we wanted the FP2.
I would like to thank the Pramac Racing Team for all the support and this will help me a lot to improve in these days.
I am happy with the bike, this morning immediately the feeling was good, we have some changes to make but we are on the right direction.
During the FP1 I ended up in the middle of the yellow flag, and I didn’t have the chance to improve my lap time, but we are still in the Top Ten and this is very important.
I feel confident for tomorrow.
