Avintia Esponsorama and Sky VR46 Avintia completed a good qualifying session at Silverstone despite not going through to Q2.
Enea Bastianini will start tomorrow’s race 13th. During Q1, when he was in first position, he suffered a crash that did not allow him to fight for the best time in the last moments of the session. In the end, he was overtaken by two rivals and only 54 thousandths of a second didn’t allow him to get into Q2.
Luca Marini finished 14th, just behind Bastianini. The Sky VR46 Avintia rider showed an evolution compared to the free practice sessions and completed a good qualifying session, very close to qualify for Q2.
Tomorrow at 14:00 (CET), the Monster Energy British Grand Prix premier class race will start, where Bastianini and Marini will have a good opportunity to continue scoring important points for the team.
Enea Bastianini | 1'59.553 | P13
“Today I tried, I was going to the maximum and we crashed. Anyway, we have a great pace. In FP4 I felt good on used tires and I’m very happy with the work we’ve done with the team, because we’ve improved every lap. The Ducati has strong points on this track, so tomorrow we will give our maximum from the start to get a good result.”
Luca Marini | 1'59.764 | P14
“I’m happy with qualifying, we all went very fast and 14th place is a good result on this track. In FP4 we had problems and I wasn’t satisfied, as I had no grip on the medium tire and I couldn’t keep the pace I wanted. The tire choice for tomorrow will be crucial, now we will analyse the data and try to understand what will be the right choice. The grid position is good.”
