Remy sets to work at the Red Bull Ring
The MotoGP action kicked off on Friday on KTM homelands as the CryptoDATA Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich marked the thirteenth round of the 2022 MotoGP calendar. Both Remy Gardner and teammate Raul Fernandez were looking to start the weekend well, although the weather did not say its last word.
On a wet track, Remy set off for the first time with his KTM RC16 on the new Red Bull Ring, which he admitted he has enjoyed today. Cautious on a drying track, the Australian rode in 1’35.095 this morning, before improving in the afternoon on drier conditions. His personal best of 1’31.324 placed him in P23 at the end of the first day. The rookie admitted feeling good today despite a crash in FP1 without any major damages, and he will look to continue the work tomorrow.
“The weather was a bit strange today so we were unable to take full advantage of the tyres, but the day was good overall. We know what we need to do for tomorrow, so I look forward to tomorrow already.”
