Remy Gardner makes confident start in the wet at Motegi
Tech3 Racing Team rider Remy Gardner battled the treacherous conditions as he made an encouraging start to proceedings in Japan. The Australian closed FP2 in 17th and is fully prepared to make another step forward in FP3 tomorrow, which begins at 10:55 local time or 03:55 in central Europe, ahead of the all-important qualifying shootout.
“It was very wet today and it looks like it’s going to be this way for all three days. Therefore, it was important to discover a good setting and understand the conditions early on in the weekend. Overall, I would say that it was quite a positive day but we need more. We’re still looking for that extra edge but hopefully, we can come back tomorrow and have an awesome qualifying session.”
