Silva not satisfied with qualifying progress after narrowly saving huge crash

 In MotoGP, News

Despite not being familiar with the track and still working on the development of his Inmotec, the progression of Avintia Blusens rider Iván Silva points out the fact that he could end up among the most competitive CRTs. His chances have eventually grown thinner as he was forced to drop by the box to have his windscreen changed around the end of the session after he had a close shave as he avoided a crash.

22 Iván Silva (21º 1.41.490 +4.302): “We thought we could improve in this qualifying practice but the rear tyre rebounces prevented us from doing so. We have been working on a new bike and it´s natural to have issues to sort as time goes by. We get faster and faster and the more demanding we get the more things to be improved we find out. In spite of everything – I was not familiar with the track for example – I was forced to drop by the box around the end of the practice to have my windscreen and part of the fairing changed because they got damaged as I was trying to avoid crashing. We made radical changes with only a few minutes to go and it gave me the right sensations but we will have to repeat it in the warm-up in order to make up our minds about the right configuration for tomorrow.”
