Luca Marini he closes the Q1 of the Austrian GP in seventh place and will start for tomorrow’s race from the 17th position of the grid. 12th at the end of free practice and only 46 thousandths from direct access to Q2 after FP3 (1’23.527 ed), the Sky VR46 Avintia driver was forced to Q1 where he set a best time of 1’23.834, a time that is worth the sixth row of the deployment.
Luca Marini: “I’m a bit angry about the grid position, we could have done better and managed to gain access to Q2. We knew it was going to be difficult, I was very fast on my last attempt, but I was disturbed. I had to turn off the gas and give up the lap. A shame because now even the MotoGP qualifications are often decided in a brawl like the Moto3 ″.
Ruben Xaus (team manager): “A day of ups and downs: we got closer in FP3, but in qualifying maybe we didn’t take the step we expected. The level of the category is really very high and with the rise in temperature we have lost some confidence on the front and we have taken a small step back. We are there, not far away, Luca is growing up, but we cannot relax“.
