Remy continues comeback in Catalunya with 23rd in Qualifying
Following his ultra-fast recovery, Tech3 Racing Team rider Remy Gardner is back on his Mistral 610 this weekend and showed great progress on the first two days.
The Australian improved his pace from FP1 to FP3 by 1.474 seconds and although he was fighting hard through the pain during the hot Qualifying this afternoon, he managed to secure an eighth row start for tomorrow’s 22 laps race, starting at 12.20 local time.
Position: 23rd – Time: 1’44.760 – Laps: 17
“Another tough day in the office, but I felt a little bit better today, especially in FP3. We made a good improvement, although it was a lot harder this afternoon. I thought we could improve further and to be honest, I think I could have done better, maybe squeezing out another two tenth, which would have put us in the top 20. But I was just riding around and my front was closing everywhere, so I kind of lost a little bit of confidence towards the end and all the fast laps I was doing were ruined by the front-end closing, but anyway, we’ve got a direction for tomorrow and we can do a strong race. For sure, we need a bit of luck on the first couple of laps, but I also needed luck to come here, so it will be fine.”
