19 August 2022 – Red Bull Ring – Spielberg – Austria
A heavy rain wet the Red Bull Ring, until a few minutes before the start of free practice 1, which therefore took place with a wet track.
Moto3 has inaugurated the new layout of the track, which presents the chicane before turn 2. On the asphalt 20 ºC have been recorded and in these difficult conditions Ayumu completed 21 laps in a single run, in order to progressively improve its performance. At the end of the forty minutes of the session, Ayumu finished 14th, with a time of 1’51.645 and a gap of 1.267 seconds.
John took a different approach to free practice, running two runs and getting his best lap, 1’53.365, on the last lap. Our British driver completed fifteen laps, finishing twenty-sixth, with a gap of 2.987 seconds.
Free practices will start at 13:15 (GMT +2).
