Jack gets off a great start and 10 minutes from the end of the session is in second place. The Australian rider finishes in P6 without attempting the time attack. A crash at the end of the session forces Pecco to change bike. The Italian rider returns to the track with soft tyres and ends very close to the Top 10.
Jack is very fast from the first laps, remaining steadily in the first positions. A superb time attack allows him to conquer a great third place. Pecco doesn’t find the right feeling with the bike. In the time attack he tries to push without being able to get a lap time to finish close to the Top 10.
Pecco Bagnaia: This is the worst Friday of the season so far. Following two positive weekends at Mugello and Barcelona, where I felt like I had a good feeling, we couldn’t find the right path anymore. The gap is too wide for my potential and that of the bike. We’ll work hard.
Jack Miller: It was a very positive day and it was nice to find the feeling right away after two races on circuits that were not easy for us. We were fast both on the race pace and on the time attack and the tyres also worked very well despite the circuit conditions are not the best.
