Team Gresini One-Tenth Away from Argentine Q2

The racing weekend at Termas de Rio Hondo began with good feelings for Alex Marquez and Fabio Di Giannantonio, both close to each other lap-time wise and only a few thousandths of a second away from the top ten. 0.096secs separate the Spanish rider from the Italian one, with the #73 who missed the chance to get into Q2 due to some traffic encountered in the third split (after potentially improving in the first two) whole the other worked more on the feeling with the bike – which he fully recovered.
On-track action will resume tomorrow morning at 10:50 local time for a Q1 who could see both Gresini standard bearers as protagonist. A spot in the first four rows will be crucial for aiming at something important in the sprint race (scheduled at 15:00) as well as in Sunday’s encounter.

11th – ALEX MARQUEZ #73 (1’39.184s)
“It was a very positive Friday. We worked well with both the new and the used tyres. Shame that I encountered some traffic om my good lap: we had a big chance to get into Q2 today but somehow we seem not to like the easy way. We have everything in order to get into Q2 tomorrow and we’ll be ready for the sprint race. Tyres and track are very different here, but I expect a very similar sprint race to the one we had in Portimao.”
15th – FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO #49 (1’39.288s)
“Things are a bit better than what they look like… We’re all very close and the feeling with the bike is now similar to the one we had in the tests. We made a plan with tyres a little different to everybody else’s and we didn’t have two sets to use in the afternoon, but we were still one tenth or so away from the Q2 lot. We’re working well and trying to improve in all areas; here the grip is very low, but we’re getting there.”
