Kent: “It was a great start to the weekend”

Kent: “It was a great start to the weekend”

Leopard Racing’s rider Danny Kent finished the day second overall in tricky and wet conditions at the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.

Again it was Danny Kent from the UK who put in an incredible display during today’s Free Practice sessions. In full wet conditions the Honda rider was the fastest man on track but as soon the track started to get dry in later stages of the second session this afternoon, Kent and his crew decided to risk nothing.

Danny Kent:
“Even though the weather wasn’t really great today, it was a great start to the weekend. Track conditions were completely wet during FP1 this morning and in the afternoon the track started to dry. But in the early stages on a full wet track we were very strong. I was one-second faster than anyone else on track with rain tyres. For the latter stages of the session, when the track dried out more and more, we decided to stay in the box because the mixed conditions were a bit risky. We preferred the safer option in order to be ready for tomorrow. In overall we have a really good feeling for the bike in the rain and the forecast says more rain for the remaining weekend, so for the moment everything is looking good. We’re really happy for the first day.”
