Ayumu lines up tenth on the Indonesian GP starting grid

 In News

During the qualifying for the Indonesian Grand Prix, Ayumu took the tenth place on the starting grid, with a time of 1’42.268.

For him there is a gap from poleman Carlos Tatay of 1.036 s. The Saturday on the Mandalika Circuit began with a violent downpour, which wet the track and made the free practice 3 take place in wet conditions. For this reason, no one was able to improve their time and Ayumu, thanks to the fourth time who scored in free practice 2, had direct access to qualifying 2.

The weather in qualifying improved and the track dried up largely, reaching a ground temperature of 39 ºC. It should be mentioned that in some places there were some wet patches, which created some problems for Ayumu in his last time attack. He completed six laps and got his best lap on the second one.

“I am very happy about today’s feeling, but unfortunately we finished P10. I think we had potential to do a better position, but I made a mistake and I couldn’t do a clean and fast lap. I am a little bit disappointed, but we have great speeds, so I am excited for tomorrow. We will start in P10, so the first few laps will be very important. I will try to gain positions in the first few laps and to finish the race in a good way.”
