GRAN PREMIO DE ESPANA - QUALIFYING - DIFFICULT QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE PRAMAC RACING TEAM.


The FP3 saw thirteen riders separated by less than a second. The circuit of Jerez de la Frontera, with its short straights and fast corners, makes it harder to put the power of the Desmosedici under control.

Andrea Iannone - Pramac Racing - closes the three combined sessions with the twelfth time, losing by just over a tenth of a second the opportunity to go thought to the second qualifying session. During the last free practice "FP4" used to work on tomorrow's race, the rider improved his pace but failed to reduce the gap on the single lap compared to riders in the leading group. The rider from Vasto will start from the fifteenth position on the grid.

ANDREA IANNONE (PRAMAC RACING) "I'm positive for tomorrow, even if the qualifying did not go as I wanted. We know that this is a narrow circuit and its hard to make our bike turn. In FP4 in race configuration, I was faster, but after six/seven laps, the grip of the tires drops, this is a problem that is encountered by other riders too. Tomorrow during warm up we will try a different setting to get as close as possible to the first group. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see what happens in the race."
