Ricky Cardus- 18th -1.44.838
“I am quite happy with my result today even though I did expect a better position after the results of the three free practice sessions. I was lapping comfortably with the hard tyre, which I even did my fastest lap with and waited for the last ten minutes to put on a soft one. But due to the ever changing grip level and the traffic on track, I could not take full advantage of it and I was unable to improve my time anymore. However, I’m confident for tomorrow as the weekend has been really positive so far and with a good start I will easily be able to fight for another point scoring finish and leave the first Moto2 race in Argentina with some Championship points in my luggage.”
