FERRARI ON FRONT ROW AFTER ASSEN QUALIFYING

Qualifying – #DutchGP The opening day of action at the iconic TT Circuit Assen was not looking good at some point, as the second free practice session got cancelled due to adverse weather. The results of FP1 determined then the order of qualifying, with Ferrari admitted directly to Q2. After a wet FP1, the standard bearers of FELO Gresini Racing MotoE had to spearhead their attack to pole position on a dry track, and Matteo Ferrari put together a good performance and secured a front-row start for the two upcoming races (third place). This is the first time he qualifies in the top-3 this year.

Alessio Finello had a more challenging time: after finishing FP1 in eleventh place (he was 0.7secs away from the top ten), he had a hard time getting up to speed in dry conditions. The rider #72, who rode at this track for the first time today, will start tomorrow and Sunday’s races from the sixteenth spot on the grid, ready for a comeback. 

Race one will get underway tomorrow at 16:25 local time (GMT +2). Stay tuned!

3rd – MATTEO FERRARI #11 (1’44.047)

“I’m very happy with this opening day: we ended up in Q2 directly even though conditions were tough, and that’s the reason why FP2 got cancelled. Qualifying wasn’t simple either, especially in the first laps as I had to find the right references on the dry from last year, and the grip level was also very low. I was able to improve lap after lap and I’m very happy with this front row. Let’s see what awaits us tomorrow, but one thing is for sure: we’re on the front row!”

16th – ALESSIO FINELLO #72 (1’46.644)

“Today was a tough one: to be racing on the dry for the first time at this track in qualifying wasn’t easy at all. I feel I’ve made a step forward, as the top ten is now one second away. I will try to improve some more in the races: I’m on good form, and I will give my best in every lap.”
