Starting from P17 on the grid, Red Bull KTM Tech3’s MotoGP rookie Miguel Oliveira was on the move as soon as the red lights went off. He chased down some contenders during the first phase of the race to arrive nearly in 13th around half-time, but unfortunately, couldn’t manage to keep this position as his injured shoulder prevented him from fighting. He eventually ended up 0.098 seconds behind the points scoring positions.
Following a wet and partly drying morning session, the Red Bull KTM Tech3 duo head out to a hot and humid Qualifying at the Chang International Circuit this afternoon, whereby both, Miguel Oliveira and Hafizh Syahrin managed to do their fastest lap of the weekend so far.
The Chang International Circuit greeted the MotoGP paddock this week with hot and humid weather, being the first of four flyaway rounds in Asia and Australia. Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Miguel Oliveira did his first laps at the Thai venue aboard his KTM RC16. Unfortunately, the MotoGP rookie didn’t have an easy day, but is confident to further improve in tomorrow’s FP3 at 9.55 local time (4.55 CET).
