Jack Miller fights for the Top 5 in the qualifying for the Thailand Gran Prix and will start tomorrow from the second row (P6). Francesco Bagnaia seems to be able to get a place in Q2 but crashes in the second run of Q1.
Saturday at Buriram started with a heavy rain that made the FP3 practically useless, thus confirming the Friday’s standings. Jack – directly qualified to Q2 thanks to the 5th laptime set in FP2 – finds some traffic in the first run of qualifying and in the second time attack pushes to the maximum conquering a precious second row.
Pecco has to go through Q1 after the P12 of Friday’s free practices but after a first incisive run, he crashes at turn 7 and has to settle for 15th position.
Extremely positive indications for both Pramac Racing’s riders came from the FP4, held in dry conditions.
Pecco Bagnaia: I made a stupid mistake, losing the front. This weekend it was very important not to make mistakes but unfortunately it happened. However, I am convinced that we can fight for the Top 10 because the race pace in the FP4 was really encouraging. It will be necessary to start well tomorrow.
Jack Miller: I am satisfied with this result even though I have never been able to make a perfect lap. The boys were really strong so I have no regrets. The feeling is very good and if I have to be honest I am happier for what we did in the FP4. There is great confidence for tomorrow.
