The rain finally appeared during the second day at Termas de Río Hondo in Argentina. Iker Lecuona made another strong impression on Saturday morning, finishing in fifth place, a result he didn’t reach in the afternoon. He will start from 21st on the starting grid, more than a second behind his British teammate.

The Moto2 riders will be back on track on Sunday for the warm-up, which will precede the second race of the 2018 campaign which will start at 13:20 local time.

Iker Lecuona (21st – 1’58.614):

“The morning wasn’t too wrong. The conditions were mixed, so it was easy to make a mistake. I was sliding a little at the acceleration, I almost crashed, but I managed to save it. This afternoon, I don’t really know what happened. I’ve had a lot of trouble. I changed my tyres, but as the rain got heavier I couldn’t improve. We’ll do our best for the race.”
