Remy Gardner makes confident start in Austria
In today’s opening sessions at the Red Bull Ring, Remy Gardner determinedly fought against the Austrian circuit and made progress in both FP1 and FP2.
After running a solid pace in the wet conditions this morning, the young Australian carried on pushing in FP2 and rounded out the day with a lap that left him just a second back from the top five. The action will resume tomorrow at 10:55 for FP3.
Position: 21st – Time: 1’31.468 – Laps: 22
“It was a hard first day here but I’m certain that we’ll bounce back. I found the circuit quite tricky today, however, I’m sure I’m sure that things will improve with some more track time. We worked on the bike setting in both sessions and made some improvements, however, the engine feels a bit slow, so we’ll have to see what happens with that. My performance in FP1 when it was wet was encouraging and that is a definite positive to take home. However, we definitely have to keep pushing tomorrow to get to where we want to be.”
