Throughout this first sunny day of the fourth race weekend in 2021, Tech3 KTM Factory Racing’s Danilo Petrucci feels more at ease with his new KTM RC16. The Italian improved from FP1 to FP2 by 0.592 seconds and missed out on the top 10 by just half a second, finishing day one in P17 overall.

Likewise, Iker Lecuona was lowering his lap time significantly from this morning. The Spaniard was 1.112 seconds quicker this afternoon to conclude Friday only 0.251 seconds behind his teammate. Both, Petrucci and Lecuona have some clear ideas on what to focus on for tomorrow’s Free Practice 3, which starts at 9.55 local time.

Danilo Petrucci

Position: 17th

Time: 1:38.462

Laps: 38


"We tried some different things today, but more or less, we still have a good pace on race tyres, but with the new soft tyre, I can’t really improve. Our task for now is, that we need to find out why. In general, I like the bike, but I can’t go faster with the soft tyre, which is quite an issue for the start and everything, so we definitively have to focus on this tomorrow."
