Miguel Oliveira and Hafizh Syahrin experienced an ok Friday at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya today. Both Red Bull KTM Tech3 riders did miss out on the top of the ultra-competitive MotoGP field by just 1.252 and 1.448 seconds, respectively.

While premier class rookie Oliveira immediately found a good feeling this morning and mastered to lower his lap time by 0.589 seconds from FP1 to FP2, Syahrin did an even bigger step to run 0.921 seconds quicker this afternoon. The Red Bull KTM Tech3 pair eagerly awaits Saturday at the Catalan track, starting with FP3 at 9.55 local time.

Miguel Oliveira

Position: 20th

Time: 1:41.331

Laps: 39

"This Friday the practices have been quite ok considering the time difference that we have to the front. But for sure we need more and we want more. Now I’m trying to improve the bike especially in the fast corners, which is where I’m struggling the most at the moment. I’m looking forward to tomorrow and keep working."

Hafizh Syahrin

Position: 22nd

Time: 1:41.527

Laps: 36

"Overall I felt good during this first day. We are not so far from the top compared to the rest of the season until now. Although we still need to find something more, at least half a second. Yet, we still need to improve the traction, which I’m still missing. The bike is spinning quite a lot, but I believe we can solve this tomorrow morning. I can’t wait to try to do an even better lap time on Saturday."
