The Austrian Grand Prix has entered its most decisive part at the Red Bull Ring. After the Moto3 qualifying sessions BOÉ Motorsports has completed a positive day which has reflected a good growth compared to Friday’s practices.
While on Friday David Muñoz could only finish twenty-first in the combined qualifying of practices 1 and 2 with a best time of 1:43.075, the Andalusian rider managed to make a step forward in practice 3 where he finished as the eighth fastest rider and went straight into Q2 with a best lap of 1:41.709.
With these good sensations, Muñoz had a solid performance in Q2 in which he completed a best lap of 1:42.093 that will allow him to start tomorrow from tenth on the grid.
Ana Carrasco also showed a lot of improvement from Friday to Saturday. The BOÉ Motorsports rider set a best time of 1:43.532 on the first day of practice and today she was the twelfth fastest rider in Q1 with a 1:43.111 lap.
David Muñoz:“Saturday started quite well because we made a good step forward in the morning session. In Q2 we had some problems, I wasn’t quite comfortable, but we know what we have to do and we will improve for tomorrow for sure. We start in tenth position and I hope we can fight for the win with the improvements we can make for tomorrow. We are working in a good direction, so I want to thank the team”.
Ana Carrasco:“It’s not been an easy weekend, we are working hard with the team and improving every time we go out on track. I think we have a good set-up, although we will try to find improvements for tomorrow’s race. We are all very tight on times, so I think if we have a good first lap we can fight in a good group in the race”.
The Moto3 race of the Austrian Grand Prix will start at 11 AM and will have a distance of 20 laps.
