Remy hoping for raceday rain but still positive for performance
Remy Gardner will begin the 13th round of this season’s Moto2 World Championship in Misano from head of the eighth row after finishing just 0.371 back from his teammate.
With wet weather expected tomorrow, the young Australian aims to take advantage of the conditions and close the weekend inside the points.
Position: 22nd – Time: 1’38.585 – Laps: 17
“In qualifying, I rode my best time of the weekend but it wasn’t enough and we are surprised by how fast the pace is, yet I certainly feel that this lap was one of the best that I could have done at the moment. For tomorrow, we still have some work to do but we definitely need to keep focusing on the setup in order to extract a bit more from the bike. Anyway, because of the speed of the other riders in qualifying, we will have to come prepared for race day. If it rains, then for sure, I feel that we will have a better chance, when you consider how we performed in the Czech Republic. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for wet conditions, but if it stays dry then I still think that we can have a decent time.”
