Ayumu Sasaki grabs fantastic P2 on Friday in Silverstone
The Red Bull KTM Tech3 duo delivered a stunning opening day to the British Grand Prix today. Ayumu Sasaki kicked off the 12th weekend of the 2021 season in a fine fourth, but managed to improve his fastest lap in FP2 by 1.545 seconds to finish second, just 0.139 seconds to the fastest man, while beating the circuit record.
“I’m very satisfied with that first day. First of all, I’m happy to be back here, as we haven’t been racing here last year. This is one of my favorite tracks, so I’m grateful to be here. We finished quite well, our pace is strong too, but Romano (Fenati) is a bit ahead of all of us Anyway, I think we are not so far, so we will try to improve tomorrow and I guess Sunday will be a decent race for us.”
