MotoGP Jerez #2: McPhee targets front-row start after strong Friday

Britain's John McPhee will target a top-three spot in Moto3 qualifying tomorrow after finishing the second Jerez free practice session at the top of the timesheets.

As temperatures soared over 50°C this afternoon, McPhee set a 1'46.560 to claim the bragging rights and ended ninth on the combined times as the heat meant times from the morning couldn't be bettered.

We started FP1 more or less with the same bike as the last race, but with one or two different things to try," said the little Scotsman.


"We evaluated some different options and managed to find a good compromise, although the solution we tried in FP1 was not necessarily the best option.

"For FP2 we put what we learned into place, we went with more or less the same tyres from FP1 and managed to do a good lap time, especially in these temperatures.

"It’s been a productive day overall and I’m looking forward to FP3 and of course qualifying tomorrow. I think we have the speed to be on the front row.

"In the end we’ve seen that I was on the front row last weekend and on the first lap I ended up P10, so it’s not a disaster if we don’t.

"Of course it’s nice to be there on the front and it’s always our target to be on the front two rows. We will dig deep tomorrow in qualifying and see where we are: it’s nice to be back here."
