Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Miguel Oliveira displayed a strong performance also on day two of the proceedings at the Red Bull Ring.

The Portuguese MotoGP rookie, who was already fast on Friday made further progress throughout Saturday and secured his best ever premier class starting position so far, although he narrowly missed out on a possible Q2 entry.

On the other side of the Red Bull KTM Tech3 garage, Hafizh Syahrin improved as well in the course of scorching FP3, FP4 and Q1. The latter one, he concluded with less than a second gap to the top, which means he will line up for tomorrow’s Red Bull and KTM home Grand Prix at 14.00 local time in row seven.

Laps: 8

"It was a tough Saturday, but I think not the worst one. We did a good job in FP3 and the Qualifying. We had a decent FP4 with a strong race pace, so everything is clear on our side for the race. Now we just need to do a compilation of our best settings and go for it. We feel comfortable with the bike on race pace, the target was to start a few rows in front and we did it, so we have to be happy."

Position: 20th

Time: 1:24.759

Laps: 9

"It was not a really good Qualifying. After my crash yesterday, I still not feel 100 percent fit again, but we improved the bike step by step and also my confidence, especially in the second last corner, after I went down there yesterday. Race day is tomorrow, so I will try to rest as good as possible in order to be ready for tomorrow. I just want to finish the race with the best possible position. Let’s see what we can do."
