Jorge Navarro 10th as Maria Herrera continues to adapt to Qatar

 In Moto3, News


Jorge Navarro improved his best time from yesterday in Qatar and finished tenth, 6 tenths off Kent. The Spaniard improved by just over half second compared with his best time from Thursday.

Maria Herrera, continuing her adaptation to the Qatari track, today completed the session thirty-third –improving half a second from yesterday.

Tomorrow the Moto3 riders will go directly into the first qualifying session of the 2015 season at the Losail circuit.

Jorge Navarro
“The practice session today was mainly to test things with my riding. We can see that there are places where I need to improve, so we focused on making two long runs to improve these things. In the first stint I felt very good at first. Afterwards the tyre wore down a lot, but once we changed it we had a good feeling again. The opening laps I rode alongside Fabio [Quartararo], using a bit of teamwork. When I was doing my best lap another rider blocked my path and prevented me from improving more, but the goal today was not to set a fast lap. We’ve got a good feeling and a good pace; I think tomorrow we will have a good qualifying session.”

Maria Herrera
“Today we continued to try more things with the bike and I feel better than yesterday, but I still need more laps to adapt to this circuit. Tomorrow we will continue working on the setup in order to get to the race in the best possible shape. This first Grand Prix will not be easy; you have to be mentally prepared because it’s all new, so I have to stay calm and gain as much experience as possible.”
