Pecco Bagnaia didn’t have a particularly easy day at Silverstone but still managed to secure a spot on the second row of the grid and admitted that at this stage, in addition to not feeling completely comfortable on the Desmosedici, he doesn’t know where he is compared to the competition since he opted in FP4 for a different strategy than the opponents.
‘Today I did one of my best laps ever in qualifying but it wasn’t enough. The truth is that compared to last year the level is incredible at this track and we took an incredible step forward in terms of peace. I tried to work well but it wasn’t easy because at the moment I’m not feeling very well on the bike. We already know what we have to do and that is a very good thing and we will certainly improve tomorrow’the Ducati rider began to say, who is still fighting for the rider’s championship title.
However, the Italian admitted that he does not know at this stage in particular what position he is in, in terms of aspirations for the race against the competition, but admitted that he lacks more speed:
– We still have two tenths to go before we are in the lead group and we can win the race but we are working. At this stage it’s difficult to know where I am in terms of pace because in FP4 I had a completely different strategy from the others, so it’s more difficult to understand. But we managed to be competitive and tomorrow we will take another step forward.
