ANDREA AND ALEIX WILL ATTEMPT A COMEBACK FROM THE SIXTH AND SEVENTH ROW
The Aprilia Racing Team Gresini riders will start from the sixth and seventh row of the grid in the Austrian GP scheduled to take place tomorrow. This is the result at the end of qualifying at the Red Bull Ring, where Andrea Iannone finished Q1 with the eighth best time at 1’24”526, and Aleix Espargaró close behind in ninth with a time of 1’24.749.
Doing his personal best time of the weekend in the least favourable conditions, with very high asphalt temperatures, Andrea Iannone will therefore start from the 18th spot on the grid, just ahead of his teammate.
Nonetheless, both Andrea and Aleix concentrated their work on their respective Aprilia RS-GP machines with the 28 laps of the race in mind, obtaining good feedback in terms of pace. Therefore, the goal is to make up as many positions as possible in a race that will be selective on the tyre wear front.
