BAD WEATHER SLOWS DOWN PROCEEDINGS FOR TEAM KÖMMERLING GRESINI  

Heavy rain in the morning and mixed conditions in the afternoon: it has been a quite ‘tricky’ Friday for TeamKömmerling Gresini Moto3 and their riders Jeremy Alcoba and Gabriel Rodrigo, who were far from the top of the timesheets in 20th and 24th, respectively.

 

Valencia, the venue hosting the EuropeanGP, has welcomed the MotoGP World Championship with quite a hostile weather, even though forecasts for tomorrow and especially for Sunday are expected to improve. The key will be to begin tomorrow’s proceedings on the right foot, but in order to do so better conditions, milder temperatures and dry track are required: another rainstorm is expected tonight, which leaves a question mark for tomorrow’s Moto3 FP3, expected to get underway tomorrow at 10:00 local time (GMT +1).

 

20th – JEREMY ALCOBA #52 (1’47.357)

“I had some unpleasant memories from racing at Valencia in the wet years ago, so I took a steady approach. We improved little by little and in the end we were happy with the feeling in the wet. In the afternoon we started with rain tyres, but the track was drying so we went back to the pits immediately. Maybe we lacked a little bit of courage in such tricky conditions or maybe a good slipstream would have helped, but we’re in a good place with the bike and should it not rain tomorrow, we’ll be competitive.”

 

24th GABRIEL RODRIGO #2 (1’48.554)

“This morning I felt good on the bike in wet conditions, even though I had some bad memories from 2018 under the rain, but things went better and I managed to finish FP1 in the top ten. In the afternoon, the mixed track required some more risk to be taken but I’m not very confident under these conditions so I preferred to play safe – since the feeling with the bike was not ideal. Let’s hope for a dry FP3 and to be in the conditions to work ahead of a race that, on paper, will take place with much more favorable weather.”
