Reale Avintia Academy 77 Moto3 – British Grand Prix – Silverstone
Reale Avintia Academy 77 rider Vicente Pérez will start the British Grand Prix on Sunday from the 23rd place on the grid. The rider from Valencia was strong in mixed conditions in the morning and held 18th place in qualifying until the session was interrupted by rain. In the final minutes, he was not able to improve with slick tyres and will start now from the eighth place on the grid, which is still his best qualifying result of the season so far.
Rain is forecasted for Sunday, but with the ever-changing conditions in the United Kingdom, nobody knows what really to expect.
“Today our luck was mixed, with both sides of the coin. In FP3 we were able to clock good lap times, but in the closing minutes of qualifying, we haven’t been able to fight back. I was a bit nervous because I saw that I could do really well, but instead of putting in a better lap time, I almost crashed. It’s still my best grid position this year, but we know that we could be even higher up. I hope to get a good start tomorrow and to be able to fight for a good result in the race.”
