The activities of the Grand Prix at the Riccardo Tormo Circuit were off to a start today.
The Pramac Racing riders Jorge Martin and Johann Zarco marked the fifth and tenth best times in the combined standings.
The free practice sessions in the morning took place in wet conditions. Luckily the weather conditions improved throughout the course of the day, allowing them to ride on a dry track in the second session.
Jorge Martin marked his best time at 1:31.396 on the last lap of the FP2 session. He finished in fifth place.
A time of 1:31.603 earned Johann Zarco the tenth position.
I am very happy with this first day of free practice sessions.
It’s a track where I am confortable and have a lot of fun.
I am very motivated and I know that we can do very well here.
This morning it was very cold and it was raining. It wasn’t easily to acquire the right feeling on the track.
In the evening on the asphalt I set the tenth-best time, but I am satisfied.
We have worked well.
We need to be able to take a small step forwards.
