Pramac pair on disappointing QP result

Pramac pair on disappointing QP result

Mika Kallio and Niccolò Canepa start Sunday’s Jerez race at the back of the grid.

It was not the best qualifying practice ever for the Pramac Racing team at the Gran Premio bwin.com de España on Saturday, as Mika Kallio and Niccolò Canepa respectively concluded 17th and 18th at Jerez.

Mika Kallio – 17th

“Several things didn’t go in the right direction today. We modified the bike many times without any luck. The only thing to do at the moment is analyze the data to understand in which direction we have to go. The track conditions were different compared to March, but we didn’t expect to be so far behind. Tomorrow it will need to be another comeback race for us.”

Niccolò Canepa -18th

“It went a bit better today even if with the race tyres I still need some more confidence. We have got closer to the other riders and this gives us a morale boost for the race. My learning period is going well and with patience we improve practice after practice. I want to thank my team for the great work they are doing for me.”
