Remy equals best ever qualifying with third row start in Argentina
The Tech3 Racing team rider Remy Gardner got off a flying start on the second day of action at the Termas de Río Hondo Circuit.
The Australian extraordinarily topped the third Free Practice in tricky conditions and kept his great feeling also during qualifying. He showed a consistent pace and was finally able to equal his best ever Moto2 grid position with P9.
“After this great FP3 I was feeling good and at the start of the qualifying I felt I didn’t really make the most of the dry conditions, plus I got held up, so I think we could have been further up the grid. Then it rained a bit more and I came in to put in a new rear tyre. It took me a while to really understand how much grip there was. In some corners with the water on the track there was more grip, I had to get my head around that. It’s not a bad starting position, but I think I wanted a bit more. Anyway, the race is tomorrow and the conditions will be unpredictable as well, so we have to see.”
