E-Pole at Sachsenring: second row for Ferrari, Sava just outside top-ten

The E-pole of the newly-born MotoE World Cup was a bit of past and future at the Sachsenring. Picking up from the old-school Superbike Superpole but with the all-electric prototypes by Energica, Team Trentino Gresini MotoE got on track to battle for the first starting grid of the season.

With one single lap for every rider, Savadori and Ferrari make the most of the opportunity. The first one of the two to launch himself on the main straight was Lorenzo Savadori, who did not shine in free practice – due to his FP1 crash – but did well in setting his so-far quickest lap of the weekend (1’29.959secs) and claiming the 11thplace on the grid.

Matteo Ferrari did even better by being the first rider to lap under the 1’29secs mark: the 1’28.792secs time placed him on the second row, so the #11 can now challenge at the front with a great pace on his side.

The opening race in the history of MotoE will begin at 10:00, with the question mark of the rain that is expected to make its appearance tonight at the Sachsenring – and potentially shuffling the cards for the win.

“I’m very happy. I wanted to improve on what I did yesterday but I didn’t know if I could do it on a single lap. I was eight tenths faster, although there’s still work to do because Tuuli put together an incredible lap, but we’re only 3-4 tenths away from the best and tomorrow we can play our part in the battle. We have a good race pace and to be starting from the second row will surely be an advantage”

“I’m happy: I made a mistake in the third split and without it I would have been in the top-ten, but I must say that things went well. Yesterday I basically missed the FP1, my knee still hurts and my riding style still doesn’t allow me to exploit the bike potential, which requires a smoother riding.”
