Tito Rabat qualifies third for German GP at Sachsenring

 In Moto2, News


Tito Rabat will start tomorrow’s German Moto2 Grand Prix from the front row of the grid, after qualifying third at the Sachsenring this afternoon.

After finishing this morning’s final free practice session only sixth fastest, Rabat made changes to his Kalex Moto2 machine head of qualifying. The changes paid off, with the 25-year-old Spaniard quicker through the two sectors where he was losing most of his time this morning.

A front row start is critical at the Sachsenring, where chaos is almost guaranteed as the riders head down into turn one for the first time.

“I’m happy to qualify on the front row of the grid as we’ve had quite a few problems this weekend, especially in sector two and sector four. We made some changes to the bike ahead of qualifying that allowed me to push harder and I’m happy to say I was able to improve my lap time. It’s important to start from the front row here, as everything is very close and its better to arrive at turn one at the front of the field, rather than in the middle of it. Tomorrow I need to make a good start if I am to fight for the win.”
