The GRT Yamaha team did not make any mistakes in the choice of the tyre compound and helped Garrett Gerloff to have his best day at the office since the beginning of the season. The American was immediately third in the Warm Up (1'28.089), before a smooth and risk-free Superpole Race confirmed his grid position with a fifth-place finish.
With the track completely dry for Race 2, Gerloff switched back into aggressive mode and was able to make his way into the battle for the podium, eventually managing to score his best result of the year in second. He now heads to the next round at Assen riding the wave of renewed confidence, and expects to do well at a track where he has raced very recently in MotoGP.
