QUARTARARO TAKES FIFTH PLACE IN THE FIRST DAY OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC GRAND PRIX

After the short summer break the tenth round of the Moto2 season is back today on track on the scorching Brno circuit.

Fabio Quartararo, after the good performance obtained at the German Grand Prix although the crash during the warm up had complicated his exit in the race, ended the first day of free practice sessions scoring an excellent fifth time just 0.383 from the first.
Teammate Danny Kent started the day determined to continue the good work done during the German weekend. The British rider took advantage of the first two sessions of the weekend, trying out new setting solutions without obtaining the results they expected. He managed to reduce the gap and improve the FP1 lap time by more than a second, but there is still work to be done before tomorrow’s qualifying.

FABIO QUARTARARO#20 – 5th in 2’03.501

It was a hard but positive day. We used the hard tyre in both FP1 and FP2 and we passed to the soft only in the last laps of the second session, finding an incredible improvement of the feeling. After this change I found myself much better on the track, lowering the lap a lot. I thank very much the team, let’s continue like this!”

DANNY KENT#52 – 23th in 2’04.342
“Difficult first day here in Brno. Normally it’s a track that I really enjoy but today I didn’t have a good feeling with the bike. We have a plan for tomorrow so I hope I can find a better feeling and perform better!”
