 In Moto2, News, Pol Espargaro


Tito Rabat and Pol Espargaró will start tomorrow’s race from second and third position respectively.

Tito posted the second fastest time in the qualifying session of the Aragón GP, while his team mate in the Tuenti HP 40 team, Pol Espargaró, finished the session in third place. Pol continued to solve the setup problems, which influenced yesterday’s free practice sessions, thanks to a lot of hard work by him and the team. The current championship leader, Scott Redding, will start the race from 13th position.

Axel Pons was not able to improve the bike setup and will occupy grid position 24.

Pol Espargaró – 3rd place – 1.54.294
We continued to solve the setup problems that we had yesterday. I felt a lot better out on track on the bike today and I got more used to the circumstances. I believe we have a good pace for tomorrow’s race. It will be difficult if the weather is as hot as it was yesterday because the bike will be more difficult to ride. I’m happy because yesterday we had all these problems and at least for today we could solve them, so I’m satisfied with that and I’m sure that we can make a good race tomorrow.

Tito Rabat – 2nd place – 1.53.985
Today’s sessions were good. I think we’ve got a good rhythm for tomorrow’s race and a good setup. I have to be very focused to make a good start. I think the group at the front will be big and we’ll have to battle hard throughout the entire race.

Tito Pons – 24th place – 1.56.081
I couldn’t solve the setup problems that already troubled us yesterday. We have to continue to work on it during warm up and must not give up. It’s a struggle but with hard work I am sure we can improve.
