Correos Prepago Yamaha VR46 Master Camp‘s Manuel Gonzalez and Kasma Daniel made the most of the dry conditions during qualifying at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello. Manuel Gonzalez showed great speed in the early stages of Q2 and ultimately secured P11 on the grid for tomorrow‘s Gran Premio d‘Italia. Kasma Daniel took part in Q1 and will start the race from P30.
Gonzalez‘ first hot lap of Q2 put him in P3, but the competition was stiff in the Moto2 class this afternoon. He was pushing and set a 1'50.995s which would have earned him fourth place, but the lap was cancelled due to exceeding track limits. He tried to keep the momentum going but was unable to find a time improvement. His earlier best time, a 1‘51.325s set on lap 2/8, put him in 11th place in the qualifying results.
Daniel booked great progress on the Saturday. He upped his pace in both the P3 and the Q1 session as he‘s getting more and more familiar with the Mugello Circuit and the 2023 Moto2 bike every time he goes out. The Malaysian rider built up his pace in the 15-minute shoot-out and set a 1‘54.277s best time on lap 8/8. His 16th position in the Q1 rankings puts him in 30th place on the grid.
