Remy Gardner secures fantastic fourth in Sepang Qualifying
Tech3 Racing team rider Remy Gardner raced to secure his second best spot on the starting grid in the Malaysian heat today.
With an incredible fast time straight out of the garage, the Australian laid down a stunning marker through scorching track conditions and will start the second last race of the season from the front of the second row on Sunday.
Position: 4th – Time: 2’06.347 – Laps: 14
“Today has been a very positive day. I did a really first lap on the first exit of Qualifying, luckily, because then the track went hotter and it was a lot more greasy towards the end. Also the tyres only lasted for one lap. I managed to put a pretty decent lap together in the first lap and we were sitting in P3 for a while all the way until the last two minutes. We put in a new set of tyres again and I tried, but it was just really difficult out there. Quartararo did a good job to pass me in these conditions. We were close to parc fermé, but not in, anyway, I don’t think it’s going to change a lot for tomorrow. We still need to work on our race pace in the Warm up, but I’m happy.”
