Danilo Petrucci gives the Octo Pramac Racing another joy, this time in the Sachsenring’s parc fermeè. For Scott Redding a very difficult day and a bad qualify.
Petrux is in great shape and goes strong in the FP3 under dry conditions after the good sensations of Friday. However, in the time attack that would allow him to gain direct access to Q2, a crash in the last sector forces him to go back to the box. The attempt with the second bike did not bring the hoping results. Petrucci remained focused and after winning the Q1 he play a wonderful Q2 under wet conditions. Only Marc Marquez, at the last available lap takes away the satisfaction of his first career pole. However, Petrux celebrates once again at the parc fermeè with his team, on the day of the renewal with Octo Pramac Racing.
For Scott Redding a very difficult Saturday at the Sachsenring. The English rider is not able to find the right feeling with his bike and after closing the FP3 in 15th place, his not able in Q1 to make a step forward that would allow him to take some positions on the starting grid of the #German GP.
2nd – Danilo Petrucci – 1’27.462
“I am very happy to be here because it was a real fight. I was coming from Q1 and I had good feelings. I knew I could be there. It was a beautiful battle with Marquez, I also pulled it a bit but he was better. However, I am happy to start in the first row. Since last year, I was looking for this result in this circuit. For tomorrow, we will see what the weather will be, however I feel I have great confidence on both wet and dry conditions”.
23th – Scott Redding – 1’29.578
“It was a very difficult day for me. I have never been competitive in dry and wet conditions. I honestly don’ know what to say. It is my worst qualify since I am in Pramac. Danilo and his team went from Q1 to almost pole position while we were unable to find solutions in order to improve. The problem was mainly on the grip. I felt as I could not follow anyone rhythm. I am very sorry. Tomorrow I will try to give the maximum”.
