“It doesn’t seem like it, but in the first and second sectors we really struggle. That is why I am very satisfied with this front row and the wonderful laps at the start of Q2 ”.Fabio Quartararo in the first run of Q2 he scored a 22 ″ 6 – track record – twice, which seemed unsurpassed even for the Ducati missiles on one of their favorite hunting grounds. Instead, with time practically up, Jorge Martin’s last attempt was superb and enough to beat El Diablo by 34 thousandths. The Yamaha rider therefore has to settle for the front row, which is already a success at the Red Bull Ring.
The race pace exhibited by the Frenchman in PL4 was impressive, but it will be necessary to defend oneself in the first laps, hoping to open a small gap between the lead and the pursuers. The Yamaha M1, in fact, pays 10 km per hour to the Ducatis. In the second run Quartararo had to deal with the difficulties and the nervousness generated by having several pilots in its wake chasing the right tow: “I’m happy with this front row. The second weekend in a row is always difficult. Too bad you always have the same ones that come after you. Once is fine, but always a little tired. In the end, I also want someone to get some slipstream, even if it’s difficult with our bike. I am very happy with our pace and also with this lap, which was really fast. Competition? Yes, we are in very good shape. In PL4 we made a really consistent and fast pace, 24 ″ 2 with more than 17 laps on the tire. It is different in the race, but we are in good shape. Low top speed is a problem. If they were always only 5 km / h I’d be happy. The problem is that in PL4 they were also 10 and so it becomes difficult. We did the work today. The pace is good. I’m happy. The flying lap is my favorite thing to do, more than the race. On this track, making the front row twice is extraordinary, because it doesn’t seem like it, but we really struggle in T1 and T2 “, the analysis of Quartararo to the microphones of Sky Sport MotoGP.
