The new asphalt of the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto works great and already at the beginning of FP1 the lap times are close to the track record. Jack Miller starts out strong immediately and finishes P10 in the combined standings. In FP2 Francesco Bagnaia (13th in the combined standings) improved his morning time by more than one second. Great confidence for both Pramac Racing riders in view of tomorrow’s qualifying.
Jack starts very fast and remains in the top positions throughout the session. The Australian rider completes 13 laps using the same tyres (medium). Some problems in braking, especially on the rear, for Pecco who still gets his best time on lap 15 with used tires.
Pecco Bagnaia: The feeling with the bike improves lap after lap and with the hard tyres, Bagnaia makes a very interesting time in view of tomorrow’s decisive FP3.
Jack Miller: Jack focuses on race pace and remains on the track (23 laps) more than any other. Even the Australian rider cannot take advantage of the soft tyre due to a mistake in the last sector.
