Unwanted crashers affect Remy’s Aragon qualifying
Tech3 KTM Factory Racing returned to the action with a busy Saturday as usual, starting with the final two free practice sessions, followed by the qualifying ones.
On the lookout for a more comfortable set-up, Remy Gardner appeared to have made progress on Saturday during the free practice sessions as he managed to improve his lap times with good race pace. In qualifying 1 however, Remy, a bit unlucky today, had to settle with his best lap in 1’47.847, and will start the Aragon GP from P22. The lights will go out on Sunday at 14:00 (GMT+2) for twenty-three laps.
“The day started well with FP3 because I felt more comfortable with the set up I had. In qualifying, I had an issue on the bike which forced me to head back to the garage, and then I was just unlucky. On my first flying lap, Maverick Viñales crashed in front of me, then Pol Espargaro crashed too on my second fast lap, so I just finished like I could. It is a shame because we could have had a better position on the grid. Let’s try to have a good race tomorrow .”
