Algarve GP Practice




Takaaki Nakagami made a solid start as free practice for the Algarve Grand Prix got underway, ending Friday well-placed inside the top 10. The LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider was on the pace throughout and finished strongly to set himself up nicely ahead of qualifying in the penultimate race weekend of the season.
 


With the circuit still somewhat dirty ahead of the morning session, Taka took time to find his rhythm in a competitive FP1 and eventually settled for 12th despite being only two tenths behind sixth place. He found himself fifth heading into the closing stages of FP2, before dropping down the order, but forced his way up into 9th on his final lap of the day.

(1’40.122)




“It was a good day. FP1 was quite difficult conditions as there was a little bit of dust, but in FP2 conditions were getting better and we were able to improve the lap time and the feeling on the bike.

 

We still need to find the best balance of the bike, but the general feeling is quite good, so we’ll keep working hard to improve. Let’s see how we do in qualifying.”
