Brad Binder lines up fifteenth on the #AlcanizGP grid
More sunshine and warmer temperatures welcomed MotoGP back to MotorLand Aragón and where Free Practice sessions and qualification on Friday and Saturday were less complicated compared to the cold conditions the previous week. Finding the best balance between effective grip and consideration of tire wear for Sunday’s race was the main job for both Red Bull KTM Factory Racing as well as the Red Bull KTM Tech3 crew.
Brad Binder was so close to moving through to Q2 but missed out by three tenths of a second and will start Sunday’s race from 15th.
Moto3 opens raceday on Sunday with the timing of 11.20 followed by MotoGP at 13.00 and then Moto2 at 14.30 CET.
“It was a lot easier for me to put down consistent laps, which is good for the race tomorrow. I feel like I am lacking a little bit of straight-up one-lap pace and it was difficult today because I was missing a tenth of a second here and there and it is so tight out there at the moment. Any steps we can make for tomorrow will give us a small advantage going into the race. In general, I think we are much better prepared than we were last week.”
