Juanfran Guevara struggles for feel at damp Indianapolis

 In Moto3, News


The Moto3 World Championship resumed following a three-week summer break today as the second half of the season got underway at Indianapolis.

The first day of free practice was an opportunity for the riders to get to know the modified layout, which features five new corners and a relaid asphalt, that makes for a slightly shorter and faster track. Jack Miller set the pace in the first session of a day interrupted by intermittent rain, with Isaac Viñales edging out the Australian in the afternoon.

Juanfran Guevara admits to being a fan of the ‘new’ Indianapolis even though he struggled to adapt today. The MAPFRE Aspar youngster never quite managed to get comfortable with the mixed conditions in either session today and he struggled to find confidence on his machine around the damp American circuit.

Juanfran finished the day in 24th position but he is determined to improve on this tomorrow.

24th Juanfran Guevara 1.44.831 (31 laps):
“The track was quite damp this morning and we had to go out on wet tyres. My feeling wasn’t good and I was pretty slow in those conditions. Ten minutes from the end the track dried out and we were able to salvage something from the session on slick tyres. The afternoon session started out with a light shower and with the track conditions neither one thing nor the other I struggled to focus. I made a few mistakes today so tomorrow I have to learn from them because it looks like the weather will be the same. The modifications to the track have made quite a different, it is faster now and the grip is more reliable so hopefully we get the weather we need to push harder.”
