Barberá charges to seventh on the grid in Sepang

Saturday, 20 October 2012

The Pramac Racing Team and his rider, Héctor Barberá, achieved 7th spot on the grid in today’s qualifying session at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Setting a best lap time of 2’01.294, the Spaniard will start from a promising third row, putting in for a strong performance ahead of tomorrow’s 20 lap race. Barberá struggled a little with some chattering problems, but these small issues seem to be no cause for concern for the Pramac Racing Team, which tomorrow will use the twenty-minute warm up to adjust the bike set up, trying to help Barberá to fight for a good result.

“I’m very happy about today. The Sepang circuit is one of my favourite tracks and I always went quite fast here. I achieved a good result in today’s qualifying session, finding a good pace. The 7th place of today, allows me to arrive on the grid tomorrow with confidence to battle for a great race, and it was what I needed. I’m feeling good on my Ducati and I know we can hunt for one of our best results in this 2012 MotoGP season. Today I rode with the same lap times I set during the winter test (even if during the preseason test we found different weather conditions compared this weekend) and this improved my confidence a lot for tomorrow’s race.”
