Sixth row start for Ayumu in Jerez
The Red Bull KTM Tech3 duo of Ayumu Sasaki and his teammate Deniz Öncü delivered an amazing performance in today’s FP3 to qualify directly for Q2 at the Gran Premio Red Bull de España, in P11 and P13 respectively. During the boiling Qualifying at midday, they both struggled to improve on their fastest lap. Yet, Ayumu eventually finished in P17.
Sunday’s Moto3 action is set to go ahead at 8:20 local time with a short Warm Up session, before the red lights go off for the second time in 2020 at 11:00 local time.
“We managed to do another step today, especially in FP3. We could enter Q2 directly. The bike was working very well in Qualifying, so I had a great base. But I made a mistake with my strategy myself, so I couldn’t get one fast really good lap time. I have to admit, that I’m a little bit disappointed about this session. Now I try to think about what I can do in the race and try to improve my position as much as possible.”
