Remy faces an uphill start in Austin at Americas GP
The Tech3 Racing duo got off a tricky start for the third round of 2018. While Remy Gardner was trying to find a good line around the Circuit of the Americas, Bo Bendsneyder did his first Moto2 laps around the demanding track aboard the Mistral 610.
The talented Australian eventually missed out on the top by 1.649 seconds, while teammate Bendsneyder followed just 0.495 seconds behind his team mate. Both aim to lower their respective lap times on Saturday, starting with FP3 10.55 local time.
“I’m pretty disappointed with today, because I was expecting a lot more. I’m really struggling with this track, which we knew before, but I didn’t expect this much. I still need to find my way around here, but we also need a bit more from the bike. In Fp2 I crashed by the end of the session, which was not really helping the situation. I’m definitely pushing, but hopefully we’ll find a better compromise for tomorrow to be ready for the race on Sunday.”
