Remy ready to give it all from P20 on the Sepang grid
No rain today at the Sepang International Circuit for the penultimate qualifying day of the season which saw Remy Gardner dispute a stacked qualifying 1 session. He will line up in twentieth for the Grand Prix of Malaysia.
In Free Practice 3, track conditions guided Remy to use the hard front tyre, but he seemed uncomfortable with it and crashed. As he got back on his bike, he managed to register a fast lap in 2’00.126 placing him twentieth in the combined standing. In qualifying 1, an early crash prevented him from being able to do more than one fast lap, and his time in 1’59.803 placed him in P20 for Sunday’s race.
“This morning we tried the hard tyre at the front for FP3 but I crashed unfortunately. In qualifying, I also crashed on my in-lap, so I was able to push for only one lap, which is not ideal. We are 0.20 seconds from Miguel Oliveira which is not so bad. Tomorrow’s race will be really tough physically because it is going to be very warm and the humidity makes it worse. We will try to give our best for twenty laps.”
