Fourth row start for Pramac Racing duo

Fourth row start for Pramac Racing duo

A taxingly hot day exceeding 30 degrees with over 60% of humidity marked the qualifying session for the Shell Advance Malaysian Grand Prix, where the Pramac Racing riders completed the session in eleventh and twelfth positions, putting both riders on the fourth row.

Randy De Puniet:
"I am a little disappointed because I was faster yesterday and today, despite several changes, we could not keep the same level. Compared to winter testing we are not too far away from the other riders and this is a good sign, but tomorrow will still be a complicated race. With the back of the bike I am quite comfortable, though now we will investigate further tomorrow something to help me during tomorrow’s race. It will be tough, it's hot, but we need another good result and we will give it all."

Loris Capirossi:
"I am not happy today because we could be at least in the top ten. We tried a new solution because the track had deteriorated, but it did not go as hoped. So during the last attempt at the end we returned to this morning set-up and we were able to improve. Tomorrow we can have a good race because the race pace is good. Then everything will of course depend on the weather!”
