Fifth row start for Hector Barbera at the Italian Grand Prix
Avintia Racing rider, Hector Barbera, will start the Italian Grand Prix tomorrow from the fifth row of the grid after setting the 15th fastest lap in the qualifying practice today at Mugello.
The Spaniard was quite fast in FP3, improving 1.2s his best lap time from yesterday. Then he pushed even harder to cut 0.5s in Q1, but it was not enough to get into Q2. Even so, Barbera is confident on his race pace and he hopes to get his sixth top ten finish of the season.

“It’s being a difficult weekend so far, more than we expected in a track that I love. But if we consider that yesterday we did not too much laps due to technical issues, we really started to do more laps today and the result was not so bad. The positive point is that we have found a set up that should work tomorrow, so we still ambitious ahead the race. The lap times are incredibly tight and we’ll keep working in the warm up tomorrow trying to refine the set up. The race will be long, the bike is ready, we have the pace and I think that if we do our job, we should be able to fight for a good result.”
