Yamaha VR46 Master Camp Team‘s Manuel Gonzalez and Keminth Kubo gained a lot of experience on their second day at the Losail International Circuit. The two debutants impressed with their determination during the Moto2 Q1 session, securing 24th and 26th place respectively on the grid.
Gonzalez missed out on joining the Q2 session by a hair due to a crash in FP3. Though he hurt his shoulder and collarbone and was in considerable pain when riding the bike, he was still able to take part in Q1. The young talent gave it some welly, showing great speed. Saving the best for last, he set a 2‘00.551s best time, on lap 7/7, that earned him 10th in Q1 and 24th place on the grid.
Kubo used the second day to get more familiar with the Losail circuit as well as his Moto2 bike. His objective for qualifying was to set his best lap of the weekend so far, and he succeeded. Clocking a promising 2‘01.033s on lap 5/7, put him in 12th position in the Q1 timesheets and in 26th place for tomorrow‘s start of the first Grand Prix of the 2022 season.
