Strong start for Miller and Petrucci in Australia

The Alma Pramac Racing pairing had a very positive Friday on the Island

Friday was an extremely positive Friday for Alma Pramac Racing at Phillip Island as Danilo Petrucci and home hero Jack Miller start the Michelin® Australian Motorcycle GP in good form. 

Petrucci: "I have to compensate by riding style, not setup"

‘Petrux’ found a great feeling with his Desmosedici machine from the word go, confirmed by finishing Day 1 in Australia P2 on the combined timesheets:

“I’m very happy. I did a good lap even though I used Viñales as a reference. I feel like I have a great feeling with the bike. I made a reset compared to Japan where I made some mistakes. With the new tyres I am very fast but in the race, it will be essential to manage the consumption”.

Meanwhile, Miller greets his home fans with a superb FP1, in which he finished P2, before ending a solid P8 on the combined times:

“I am satisfied with the work we have done even though the result is not the best. In the time attack of FP2, the tyres didn’t work at their best. We have a few things to fix on the bike but I’m still confident. Tomorrow we will have to improve our speed.”
