Joan Mir set for fightback from 8th row of French grid

 In Moto3, News


It will be an uphill struggle for the rookie Joan Mir at tomorrow’s French GP. The 18 year-old Palma de Mallorca tried a different frame setup during FP3 but it did not yield the desired results.

Going back to his previous setting, the young Spaniard committed 100% to the time attack, but suffered a fall (without consequences) that sent him to 24th on the grid.

Riders will take to the track at 08:40 local time (GMT +2) on Sunday for 20 minutes of Warm Up. Then at 11:00 the lights go out for the fifth round of the 2016 World Championship.

#36 Joan MIR – 24th (1’43.766):
“It was a very difficult qualifying for me. I have not found the right feeling with the front and we have little rear grip. The fall made things even harder. I have full confidence in my team. Tomorrow we have to do a great race.”
