Difficult qualifying day at MotorLand Aragon, Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia will start respectively from the fourth and sixth row of the starting grid.
In the FP3 Jack had noticed big improvements who lacks direct access to Q2 for only 24 thousandths, he did good also during the FP4 closed in seventh position.
Miller started the Q1 with very positive feelings, he makes a perfect first run closing in P1, he was fast and the riding feeling was fantastic. Unfortunately during the second run Jack suffered not finding the right confidence with the new rear tire, this was the main reason for the missed Q2, Jack closed the day in P14.
Pecco Bagnaia continues to struggle with the lack of grip, he didn’t find the right feeling despite the positive steps he had reached in FP3 lowering the time by more than two seconds compared to the FP1 on Friday and also improving the race pace.
The Italian rider will start tomorrow from eighteenth position.
From today I was expecting more. I liked the changed we made yesterday and I thought that with the new tires we would be able to do better.
The only improvement I made was 4 tenths on the pace, but it is not enough to make a time attack. We are all very competitive, and now even if we are in trouble we will try to do our best.
I was doing my lap but the second tire didn’t work well, apart from that everything was good.
I was able to do very good laps but I had no control during the second run in Q2.
I’m sad but as always tomorrow I will do my best and we see.
