An extremely positive Friday for Alma Pramac Racing at Philip Island. Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller start the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle GP in the best way, lapping fast in both FP1 and FP2.
Petrux finds a great feeling with his Ducati Desmosedici GP since the morning practice (P3) and in the afternoon he confirms himself at the highest level ending up in second position behind Andrea Iannone.
Jack greets his fans with a superb FP1 that finishes in second position. In the afternoon practice, the Australian rider is constantly in the front group and ends in 8th position.
P2 – Danilo Petrucci
“I’m very happy. I did a good lap even though I used Vinales as a reference. I feel like I have a great feeling with the bike. I made a reset compared to Japan where I made some mistakes. With the new tyres I am very fast but in the race it will be essential to manage the consumption”.
P8 – Jack Miller
“I am satisfied with the work we have done even though the result is not the best. In the time attack of FP2 the tyres didn’t work at their best. We have a few things to fix on the bike but I’m still confident. Tomorrow we will have to improve our speed”.
