The MotoGP™ grid was once again unlucky with the weather today at Sachsenring racetrack as they were greeted by rain in the morning free session.
The same tricky conditions affected the 60-minute frantic qualifying session with Stefan Bradl lining up on the second row ahead of tomorrow’s 30-lap race. LCR Honda’s local favourite Stefan Bradl had led the majority of the session showing his increasing confidence aboard the Honda RC213V at the 3.671Km circuit, putting in a great showing for his home crowd in sixth.
“We did not expect to have a wet qualifying today but at the end it rained a lot and our pace has been consistently fast since the beginning. We have been doing a good job for the whole session and this is a positive sign for me and the Team. With the little adjustments that we made I could quickly adapt to the conditions lapping with a good pace. At the end of the session the surface started to dry up and everybody pushed hard but I got stopped by some slower riders in my last lap. I am bit disappointed because we could take the front row but in any case it was a very positive session for us and we can be happy about the result.”
