Good start for Octo Pramac Yakhnich at #ValenciaGp: Petrux 9th, Scott 12th
The last weekend of the 2016 MotoGP season begins with a good feeling for Octo Pramac Yakhnich. In Friday’s free practice at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, Danilo Petrucci ends up in Top 10 and Scott finishes 12th while giving the feeling of being on the right direction to fight for the direct qualification to Q2 tomorrow.

Danilo Petrucci and his team worked very hard on set-up and tire choice in sight of Sunday's race. After the 13th lap-time set in FP1, in FP2 time attack Petrux has already been shown to have a good feeling with his bike finishing with the chrono of 1'31.295, only one-tenth of a second behind the hypothetical second row.
Scott started well FP1 recording the 9th time then he met a bit more difficulties in the afternoon as the temperature has risen. For the English rider the 12th lap-time (1'31.733)

9°- Danilo Petrucci - 1'31.295

We are very close to the group in front but two tenths in Valencia are so many compared to other circuits. I'm quite happy with my lap time but I prefer to think about setting the bike for the race. We will have to manage the tire consumption because we saw that they quickly drop. But the feeling is ok. We need to fix some details but all in all I'm satisfied.

12° - Scott Redding - 1'31.733

Not bad. I am not happy nor disappointed. I've got to figure out how to find the feeling especially in the left corners because in those right things are much better. I also tried to change my riding style but in braking areas I always had a few problems. We will work today and tomorrow to figure out how to make progress and try a range of solutions with the tires.
