Remy looking forward to Motegi qualifying after mixed first day in Japan
New continent, new schedule…The MotoGP action kicked off at Motegi Mobility Resort on Friday for the first day of the Grand Prix of Japan, in a slightly different way than we are used to. Remy Gardner went on track for only one session (FP1) for one hour and fifteen minutes.
With a session split in five runs, Remy managed to get his fastest lap towards the end in 1’45.991, a lap he could have improved had he not been shown the yellow flag due to the few crashes occurring towards the end of the session. He finished the day in P23, and will aim to improve tomorrow in order to start the Grand Prix of Japan in the best conditions possible.
“Long session today at the end of which we started to feel better. Unfortunately, I had another yellow flag which bothered me as I had a good rhythm, but I have to accept it. We will continue to work tonight, get ready for tomorrow and try to do a good qualifying day here in Motegi.”
