Italian Grand Prix, Mugello: WarmUp Results

SV July 3, 2011 News No Comments

Glorious sunshine and warm temperatures greeted the riders of all classes this morning for their warmup sessions, making forget yesterday’s rain once again and looking encouraging for the race later today.

It’s also been an encouraging session for Alvaro. After the nightmare qualifying yesterday where he was unable to post a fast lap before the rain came which relegated him to a lowly 14th position on the grid, he showed again in the warmup how much better the Suzuki goes once there’s enough grip. He was well inside the top ten for most of the session, looking quick and competitive and even staying within the top five for some time, but then lost out in the final minutes again. But his pace looks quick enough to fight with the second group in the race although catching up with the factory Hondas and Yamahas is still out of reach.
