Portuguese GP Practice



Takaaki Nakagami showed all of his bravery and skill to finish in the top 10 on the opening day of free practice for the Portuguese Grand Prix, despite a nasty fall.




With the MotoGP World Championship returning to European soil after a double-header in Qatar, the LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider rode through the pain barrier to leave himself well-placed ahead of Saturday’s qualifying.
 


With the track still drying out after rain in FP1, all the riders posted their best times in FP2. Taka finished 12th in the damp morning session and looked unlikely to improve on it after slipping off his bike at turn one on his opening lap in FP2. But he managed to return to the track towards the end of the session and impressively posted the tenth fastest time of the day.





Takaaki Nakagami – 10th
(1’40.611)



“Unfortunately, I had quite a big crash on the first lap during FP2, it was a big impact and was quite painful all over my body. I’d like to thank the medical staff, because I was pushing to get back out on the track and then finally with 12 minutes to go, I was able to go back out and try my best. I struggled and was not comfortable on the bike, because I was in pain, but I did my best until the last moment.



I am pretty happy with my P10 today, because I didn’t expect anything in this situation. Thanks to all my team, they did a great job today and let’s see what happens tomorrow. Hopefully we can improve the physical condition and also the set-up of the bike, but I’m happy where we ended up.”
