18 June 2022 – Sachsenring – Germany
Ayumu at the end of the three rounds of free practice is second. This is an incredible result, considering that yesterday Ayumu took to the track for the first time, after missing two races, following the bad accident of Mugello. Our Japanese rider still has a sore collarbone, and his movements are rather limited, but yesterday, he did a painstaking job with his team to improve the ergonomics of the bike, in order to reduce pain. 1’26.101 is his best lap, with which he has a gap from the leader of the combined I. Guevara of 0.176 s. Also John was very fast and at the end of the session he conquered the eighth position. After 16 laps he got the time of 1’26.446, with a gap of 0.521 s.
Thanks to these excellent results, our two bearers have gained direct access to Q2, which will start at 13:00 (GMT +2).
