It was a difficult Saturday for Octo Pramac Racing at Motorland of Aragon. Danilo Petrucci and Scott Redding couldn’t be competitive in Q1 and will start tomorrow in P16 and P22 respectively.
Petrux had grip problems at the rear already from FP3, and for this reason he was not able to find confidence before Q1. During the time attacks in the qualifying, the Italian rider couldn’t find the ideal conditions in order to push and conquer the Q2.
On the other hand, also Scott had a FP3 below the expectations. During the FP4 however, the English rider was lapping consistently and this could allow him to have a strong comeback tomorrow, in view of a bad Q1 ended in P22.
16th – Danilo Petrucci
“I did not expect such a difficult day. I don’t have any confidence with the front in the fast corners and the grip at the rear is a problem. Starting from behind will be hard tomorrow, for this reason I think that ending in top 10 will be a good result”.
22th – Scott Redding
“Qualifying went badly. This was my worst qualify but if I have to be honest I still have confidence for the race. In FP4 the pace was really good. I think I can do a good comeback tomorrow”.
