Italian GP – Positive first day of practice for Johann Zarco and Michele Pirro

The long-awaited Grand Prix of Italy is finally underway this morning after the first day of free practice sessions.
Johann Zarco and Michele Pirro arrive in eleventh and fifteenth place in the combined standings.
Johann marked his best time in FP1 – a time of 1:46.802 earns him the second-best time. In FP2 he was not able to express himself as he would have liked to and finished the session in the tenth position.
A good performance by Michele Pirro, who ended the first free practice session in seventh place. His personal best lap-time is 1:47.555.
In FP2, the Italian rider lowered his morning-session lap-time by 4 tenths. He stands in fourteenth place.

Michele Pirro

I am happy, it has been a good first day. We need to work to improve a few things if we want to take a step forwards tomorrow, but regardless I am truly satisfied.

Johann Zarco

I am very happy with this morning’s session; however, I am a bit disappointed to not have been able to lower the lap times in the afternoon.
I will take this as a challenge to improve tomorrow morning. I need to be able to make the most out of the bike’s potential because on this track, it is extremely fast.
If I can find the right solution, it will help me for the rest of the season.
