Navarro Improves His Performance In Austrian Qualifying

Jorge Navarro will line up in the middle of the fourth row of the grid for tomorrow’s 25-lap Austrian GP Moto2 World Championship race on boad his Kalex #9 machine. The Spanish rider of team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 logged a 1’30.116 to claim the eleventh starting position for the middleweight class encounter.

Despite a difficult start, the 21-year-old was able to make some important progress - which helped him improve by two seconds his best-lap time from FP1 - and to show a great pace ahead of the race, which will get underway at 12:20 local time (GMT +2).

Crucial will be tomorrow morning’s warm-up, scheduled at 9:10, in which Navarro and the team will try and improve the feeling with the front-end of the bike as well as come to a final decision about which tyres to use for the race. The medium compound, at the moment, appears to be the preferable choice over the softer one.

“We did improve compared to yesterday and that’s a fact. We have made a step forward but I still don’t feel fully comfortable on the bike, especially with the front-end. I had a couple of moments today, one in FP3 and the other in qualifying – where I got really close to falling off the bike. In the last outing, we tried new settings at the front and it seems like things have improved a little, so tomorrow during warm up we’ll make a final decision on what to do. We are still unsure about the tyres to use: I’m not sure we’ll be able to use the softer option as it might wear out after few laps, but we will leave this decision to tomorrow as well.”
