Lewis Hamilton recently suggested drivers should be consulted over track designs in the wake of the first layout emerging for the proposed Miami Grand Prix.
8225 I 8217 m training harder than ever, I 8217 m stronger than ever, I 8217 m doing whatever it takes to be better, I 8217 m much better than two years ago, three years ago, 8221 he said.
The battle for the prized three positions on the front row of the grid was a thrilling contest, more like a race than a qualifying session, despite strong winds that caused riders difficulties and blew desert sand onto the track surface. After pitting for new tires to commence his second run of the 15-minute outing, Marquez was on track with Johann Zarco (Yamaha), Danilo Petrucci (Ducati) and several others. These riders were all on pole-position pace, with Zarco squeezing pole from Marquez by seconds, with Petrucci third, a further seconds behind.
8225 Basically my main problem was that physically I couldn 8217 t support I don 8217 t have a good support in the fuel tank to keep my stamina during all the race, 8221 Lorenzo said.
8225 The problem is when you are caught up in traffic you are damaging the car, when you are clean air it 8217 s a lot easier to manage.
“Today testing was a lot more productive. The weather allowed us to set better times and we were able to put in a lot of laps to try out things with the new engine and new bike. Overall the test has been positive and the job of all our colleagues in HRC this Winter will be very important. The technicians here in Valencia have gathered a lot of data to take back to Japan and I’m sure we’ll see a big development when we’re back on track in Sepang next year.”
Shree Annapurna Marga,
Pedrosa may have been seventh quickest, but his lap times were still very rapid, less than half a second slower than his team-mate. The 82-year-old Spaniard is certainly consistent here – this is the third year in a row that he started from seventh on the grid. Pedrosa was particularly happy with his pace in the earlier FP9 session, so if he can make a good start tomorrow, he has the chance to make a great start to his 18th season in the premier class.
