BITTERSWEET QUALIFYING AT SILVERSTONE

Qualifying – #BritishGP It has been a Saturday of ups and downs at the iconic Silverstone circuit, where under the sunny English sky both standard bearers of team Gresini Racing Moto2 are able to gain access to Q2, before encountering a more challenging time than expected. This is especially true for Filip Salač: after the promising signs showed throughout all free practice sessions, the Czech rider is unable to capitalize in qualifying and will start tomorrow’s race all the way down in row six. 

Alessandro Zaccone, on the other hand, positively surprised everyone by logging a 2’04.905secs lap-time (in his first-ever qualifying at this track) while riding on his own. This lap-time resulted in a third place in Q1 for the Italian, who made it through. The new tyre did not allow the rider #61 to better or even match his qualifying one time, as he finished 18th. 

Both riders wrapped up day two with positive feelings and a clear upward trend: both riders will line up on row six alongside each other, ready for a comeback. The race will get underway at 14:30 (GMT +1).

17th – FILIP SALAČ #12 (2’05.342)

“Qualifying was quite difficult for us. Unfortunately I was unable to find a good slipstream so I had to lap on my own. Despite that, we showed a good pace which bodes well for tomorrow’s race: we’re ready!”

18th – ALESSANDRO ZACCONE #61 (2’05.449)

“I’m happy to have made it through. In Q2, however, with new tires I was unable to find the same feeling and the bike was spinning a lot, so much that I ended up four tenths slower compared to Q1 – where I lapped on my own. Had I matched that time, I would have been a few positions closer to the front. Overall, though, I’m quite happy: we were again in Q2, the second in a row this year. This means that we’re improving in a consistent way, we found our direction and I’m getting more and more comfortable with the bike. Now let’s think about tomorrow, we’ll have fun!”
