Rabat: “The lap time is impressive but it is only Friday”

Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS’s Tito Rabat reacts after setting the fastest ever lap time by a Moto2™ bike at Mugello.

Rabat made the perfect start to what is scheduled to be his 150th Grand Prix appearance in Sunday’s 21-lap race when he led today’s practice timesheets with a sensational lap of 1.52.311.
 
Not only did that beat his own lap record of 1.52.587, but it was quicker than Pol Espargaro’s best ever lap of the 5.245km track, as the 26-year-old finished 0.001s ahead of World Championship leader Johann Zarco.
 
Tito Rabat:
“Today went very well. I really like this track and the bike has improved in the last races, so we could be strong in both sessions. The lap time is impressive but we have to remember it is only Friday and we must work hard and stay focused to improve the bike. The times are close and it is always a big battle in Mugello, but I will just concentrate on myself and improving the bike to be ready for Sunday.”
