A fantastic Saturday for Danilo Petrucci at Termas de Rio Hondo circuit in Argentina. Following the good feelings of Friday’s free practices, finished in P5, Petrux confirmed to be the fastest Italian rider so far in the Argentine weekend, conquering a superb fourth place that will allow him to start from the top spot of the second row in the Grand Prix de la Repubblica Argentina tomorrow.
For Danilo also a great confidence given by the excellent pace recorded in FP4 (4th time) in wet conditions.
Positive sensations even for Scott Redding, who lapped very fast in a dry FP3 session (with hard tire) skimming the direct qualification to Q2 (-71 milliseconds). The British rider felt at ease also in wet conditions, ending up FP4 one tenth of a second behind the Top 5. In Q1, however, Scott was not able to find the ideal conditions to beat the competition of Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi, finishing in 15th position with a best time of 1’50.048.
