David Muñoz will start the race from tenth position, while Ana Carrasco was fourteenth in Q1

The Thai Grand Prix is underway and BOÉ Motorsports is proving to be competitive with its two riders. Both David Muñoz and Ana Carrasco, this is the first time they have competed at this circuit, and both have so far shown good progress since the first free practice on Friday. 

Adaptation was good despite the difficult conditions during FP1 and FP2, sessions in which the Moto3 riders had to face changing weather conditions with the track in wet and dry conditions. In the combined classification of these sessions, Muñoz was the eighteenth fastest rider and Carrasco was twenty-fifth.

Today, in FP3, the two BOÉ Motorsports riders could not qualify directly for Q2, so they had to go through Q1, a session in which David Muñoz was the fourth fastest rider with a lap of 1:42.992 and Ana Carrasco was fourteenth with a time of 1:44.062.

Muñoz, with this position, was able to move on to Q2 and continued to improve his feeling. For much of this qualifying session he was among the five fastest riders and finally finished in tenth position with a fastest lap of 1:43.031.
David Muñoz: “The weekend is going well. After yesterday’s practice today we knew where we needed to improve and we fixed it, although we had to go through Q1 as in FP3 I missed out on Q2 by a few thousandths of a second. In Q1 I pushed as hard as I could and in the end we qualified for Q2. I think we could have pushed a bit harder in this session, but with the tyre we used in Q1 we only had one tyre for Q2 and it wasn’t possible. I think we improved a lot and tomorrow we start tenth, so I hope we will have a good race and enjoy it. Thank you very much to the team for their work and to all the people in Spain who are supporting me with these difficult schedules”.
Ana Carrasco: “It’s been a good weekend, both in the wet in FP1 and in the rest of the dry sessions I felt pretty good with the bike and the track. It’s a new track for me, but the truth is that from the beginning I adapted quite quickly. Today Q1 could have gone better, I didn’t have a perfect lap but we are still getting closer and closer to the front. We know where we can improve for tomorrow and we will keep working with the team to have a good race”.
Tomorrow, Sunday 2 October, the Moto3 race will start at twelve o’clock tomorrow morning in Thailand, while in Spain it will be available live from seven o’clock in the morning.
