Barberá thrilled with best qualifying

Barberá thrilled with best qualifying

Héctor Barberá recorded the best qualifying result in his career as a MotoGP rider, setting the 6th fastest time at 2’03.876.

Tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. local time, the 25-year-old rider and the Pramac Team will start the 20 laps of this 2012 British round from the second row of the grid, looking to also score their best race result of this 2012 MotoGP World Championship.

Héctor Barberá

“I am so happy about this best qualifying result of the season, but I'm even happier about the fact that I felt so good on my Ducati Desmosedici this afternoon. It is really important to be on the second row for tomorrow because this gives us the best chance for a brilliant race. I feel comfortable and I'm really looking forward to tomorrow, although I hope it isn't going to rain. I’m just 0.5 seconds away from today’s quickest rider, Álvaro Bautista, and this gives me a lot of confidence for the race. Once again, I have to say thanks to my entire team for doing a great job today."

Francesco Guidotti

“With today's changing weather, we started at the beginning this afternoon with clear ideas, looking to set a quick lap time. We managed it and this allowed us to make a big step forward on the timesheet, stopping the clock with a great lap time and achieving the second row on the grid. Today we enjoyed our best 2012 campaign result in a qualifying session, and now we hope to also keep the same level tomorrow during the race.”
