Cardus And Schrotter Ready For Assault At Silverstone

Ricky Cardus will begin the Moto2 British Grand Prix from the middle of the 7th row of the grid after snatching 20th in the typically super competitive intermediate class. The Spanish rider worked hard with his Tech3 Racing Team in both sessions today, after expertly guiding his Moto2 bike to a 11th in the combined standings on the opening day in Northampton. Together with the team he continued his efforts to make refinements to the exclusively designed and built Mistral 610 for the nature of the fast, 5900 meter Silverstone circuit. As the chequered flag marked the close of the session, Cardus finished with a best time of 2’08.676, only half a second away from 10th place. The Spanish rider will intend to undertake a strong start in the 12th Moto2 race of the season and battle on to clinch a points scoring position by the end of the 18 lap sprint.

On the other side of the Tech3 Racing Team garage, Marcel Schrotter completed today’s qualifying in 22nd, which was an unfortunate end to a day that started superbly with the young German rider finishing in 5th position in the morning session. His time of 2’08,347 was just one tenth of a second behind third place highlighting the strong potential of the Mistral 610. In the qualifying, Schrotter endured a tricky practice but continued to fight, before finishing on 8th row with his time of 2’08.750 leaving him marginally over a second from 4th position. However, the 23 year-old Bavarian remains confident to score another point scoring finish during tomorrow’s Moto2 dash as he aims to consolidate his 12th position in the current World Championship standings.

“It goes without saying that 20th position is not where I wanted to start my race from, but when having a look at the timesheets I don’t need to be too disappointed. Moreover I know that our rhythm for the race is stronger than what my performance from today shows plus I made several mistakes during my fast laps so the position could have been higher because just a few tenths would have moved me up a couple of rows on the starting grid. I’m still optimistic for tomorrow as I know that I can start well and fight with the riders in front of me, plus to collect some points would be the perfect way to thank the team for the job they have done this weekend.”

“The qualifying session was surprisingly hard after the great job we did this morning where I finished 5th. The feeling with the bike was just not the same anymore and I couldn’t find a strong rhythm. While analysing the data now, we already have identified that I changed my riding style in a few corners, which made me lose a lot of time, but we need to understand what the reason for this is, either the conditions changed or whether it was me for definite. We showed this morning that we have the potential to be faster, so I’m still confident and looking forward to tomorrow, despite what happened today as qualifying is very important. However, we have still the chance to collect another handful of points which would be the perfect way to make up for today.”
