Remy to start on sixth row of the grid in Assen
The Tech3 Racing Team duo of Remy Gardner and Bo Bendsneyder experienced a diversified Qualifying at the TT Circuit Assen today, which was briefly interrupted by a red flag a few minutes before the end.
Thereby, Gardner did well to lower his lap time by 1.247 seconds from Friday morning to eventually end up in P18 following some setup changes in the course of the session.
Position: 18th – Time: 1’38.245 – Laps: 19
“It was a pretty hectic and crazy Qualifying. I made a good decision this morning to stick with an old tyre in FP3 and work with that. The new rubber this afternoon was a big step forward. I did my fastest lap in the beginning on my own, which is another positive. Then we tried to sort out some issues but lost a bit on track and in the end, we went back to what we had. But after the red flag there were just three minutes to go, it was pretty hectic and riders have been everywhere, so it was impossible to get a clean lap. I think I could have improved a tenth or so behind somebody in the slipstream. 18thon the grid is not really good, but we are only six tenths from the front, which is quite crazy. We got a strong rhythm for the race, so I think we can have a decent one.”
