It is Johann Zarco the absolute protagonist of Friday at the Phillip Island Circuit, Jorge Martin in the top ten.
Since the first session Johann shows that he has a special feeling with both the track and the bike, stamping the first time with a time of 1:30.368.
In fp2 the French rider having more awareness manages to lower his time by almost a second, which gives him the first position at the end of the day
Jorge Martin struggled a little bit more than his teammate, and after setting the thirteenth time (1’31.419) in fp1 he manages in the afternoon session to enter the top ten, which is crucial given the uncertain weather.
An incredible track, it gives you a lot of emotions, I am really satisfied.
It’s a very fast track and I didn’t expect it to be so difficult with MotoGP, body position and bike position is very important.
We are all very close, it will be important to make a step tomorrow.
A good first day, I had to adapt to the track and the wind that especially in the afternoon was very strong.
Very good work with my team, the race pace is good and I also did some very good fast laps.
