Solid opening day at Mugello for Ayumu Sasaki
Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Ayumu Sasaki was focusing on race pace at Mugello this morning and improved his personal best by more than two seconds in FP2. Yet, the Japanese was unlucky to miss out on a provisional Q2 spot by just 0.017 seconds in P15, but will have another go at it in Free Practice three tomorrow morning at 9:00 local time.

“Today has been a quite decent day. In the end, I made a mistake within the group, but we improved the bike a lot during the day and finished in P15. We know it’s going to be dry tomorrow, so FP3 will be the fastest session. Obviously, we try to make the step to Q2 directly. I’ll also try to make up the mistake I did today. The bike felt good today, maybe we need to adjust a little bit more, but we are very close. So, let’s see what we can do on Saturday.”
