SIXTH ROW FOR LOWES IN QUALIFYING AT SEPANG – Gresini Racing
28 October 2017
Sam Lowes will start from the sixth row on the starting grid in the GP of Malaysia tomorrow. The English rider on Aprilia Racing Team Gresini did a time of 2’01.207 in qualifying, an improvement of 3 tenths from his times in FP3.
After demonstrating good confidence on the wet asphalt, Lowes continued working to achieve a good feeling in the dry. Given the climate of the Malaysian track, the weather is one of the key variables to keep an eye on for the race. The English rookie demonstrated consistent performance with used tyres; a response that lets him set his sights on the points zone.
“We worked a lot again today on the RS-GP, especially in terms of balance, because this morning I did not have a good feeling. We managed to take our pace to a good level. My performance with very used tyres is about a half a second from my best time and I think that in the dry we will be able to use the soft. In qualifying I made a few small mistakes. I wasn’t able to turn an ideal lap which would have placed me farther forward on the grid. In any case, we prepared well for the race, so whether it is held in the dry or in the wet, we have the potential to battle for points.”
