Today saw the best qualifying session yet for Simone Corsi, who ended the day with the sixth fastest time. Tomorrow he will start from the second row of the Moto2 grid.
Overnight rainfall altered track conditions today and the Roman rider put his best time in on the fourth lap; the intense traffic during the session and the final minutes in particular did not permit to him to improve his lap time.
TSR’s Japanese tester Yusuke Teshima finished the session just 1.8 seconds from the pole recorded by Andrea Iannone. Tomorrow the weather forecast predicts a warmer temperature and indications from warm-up will be used to choose tyres and set-up for the race.
“Our pace for the race is good. I have not been able to improve my performance with the soft tyres though. Tomorrow it will be important to start and stay in the fastest group of riders. The tyres will play an important role, after two consistent sessions I hoped to start from the front-row but it is good to have made a step forward compared to previous races.”
“In the last few minutes I found myself on a very crowded track! I was very surprised to see some riders going slowly on the racing line. This was a pity because I was doing my best performance then, but the lap was spoiled. This is my first time at the Sachsenring circuit and I must say that the track is not the easiest to learn, however, with this being my third race for JiR I’m confident that tomorrow I will get some points.”
