13 November 2021 – Circuit Ricardo Tormo – Spain
The last qualifying of the 2021 ends and thanks to the poles obtained in Austria, Silverstone, and Misano, Romano obtains the highest number of pole in the Moto3 ! It is a result which represents the competitiveness that our team leader showed off on all the tracks of this Championship. The team led by Lele Martinelli, beyond the great professionality, has perfectly mixed with our talent from Ascoli and the recipe was absolutely successful!
In the free practice 3 of the Valencia GP Romano improved his time, gaining direct access to the qualifying 2. The weather was optimal yet from the morning and in the qualifying the excellent conditions of the track allowed to see good times. Our pilot completed six laps, obtaining a best lap of 1’39.143. His gap from the poleman P. Acosta is of 0.475 s and Romano tomorrow will start from the eighth place on the grid.
A little bit more complicated the Saturday for Adrian. Indeed in the free practice his best lap got cancelled, due to the yellow flag throughout his time attack. He took part in the qualifying 1, at the end of which he obtained the time of 1’39.428. Unfortunately, for only eighteen thousandths he did not gain the access to the Q2. Tomorrow he will from the seventh row, in nineteenth position and he will have to serve a double long lap penalty, because he slowed down throughout the session.
To follow the comments of our two bearers and of Max Biaggi our Team Owner, six time World Champion.
Romano Fenati: “Today we did not manage to perform at our 100%, but we did anyway a good qualifying, since we will start from the third row. It is not a bad position, but tomorrow we will have to regain some positions, to reach the ones that count.”
Adriàn Fernàndez: “Today was an unlucky day! First the cancelled lap due to the yellow flag in the free practice 3, then I missed the qualifying 2 for few thousandths and last but not least the news about the penalty that I will have to serve tomorrow in race. I hope to do a good race anyway, because I would like to say goodbye in the best possible way to my team, that I thank for the work done.”
Max Biaggi – Team Owner: “I am honest I would have preferred to have both of the pilots in the qualifying 2. Unfortunately, Adrian did not reach for few thousandths the Q2, but here in Valencia the gaps are really small! He starts far behind, but Valencia is for him the right track to leave us with a good result. Romano obtains the highest number of Poles and this is a great result. I hope that tomorrow he will strongly fight for the third position in the Championship.”
