The first day of free practice at the Mandalika Circuit ends in a positive way for both Pramac Racing riders, third position for Johann Zarco and fourth position for Jorge Martin.
Mixed asphalt conditions during the fp1, the French rider closed with the fifth time 1’34.2420
the Spanish rider ended the session with the time of 1’35.5250 in 21st position.
Excellent performance in fp2 for Johann and Jorge who, with times of 1’31.893 and 1’31.904, take the third and fourth place in the overall ranking.
This morning I wanted to get confident with the bike and the track.
In the afternoon session I already felt much better and in fact I finished in fourth position.
The sensations are very positive and I’m confident.
Definitely a very positive first day,
I was able to go well in both sessions.
Having done the test here has definitely helped me to get familiar with the track.
It will be important tomorrow to get into Q2 right away and have a good qualifying session.
