Jorge Navarro will start tomorrow’s 27-lap German Moto2 race from row six after finishing 18th in today’s qualifying at the Sachsenring. With ever-changing track conditions after an early downpour – which resulted in an extra challenge for all riders – the 21-year-old Spaniard kept improving his pace up to a personal best lap-time 1’33.979.
As the session got to its final minutes, however, the Federal Oil Team Gresini rider moved up to a provisional second row qualifying before a crash a turn three deprived him of the chance to keep fighting for a good starting position.
Navarro, who escaped uninjured from the tumble, will launch off the grid, along with the rest of the Moto2 field, at 12:20 local time (GMT +2).
18th – JORGE NAVARRO #9
“It’s been a complicated day. I didn’t have a good feeling on the dry, while in qualifying I got up to speed immediately and without that crash I’m sure we would have been much closer to the front of the grid. We must not think about it and keep working on the set-up for dry conditions, because tomorrow the weather might change for the better.”
