In FP2, the Repsol Honda Team rider was once again the man to beat from the opening moments onwards. He would clock the best time of the first day of the Austrian Grand Prix in the latter stages of the session.

Stefan Bradl, who was 19th in FP1, took a step forward in the afternoon, finishing FP2 in 15th position.

GP Austria 2019 – Declaraciones de los pilotos


Today like every Friday we worked a lot towards Sunday, focusing on race distance and understanding how the tyres and the setup will behave. Like in Brno and in the Sachsenring we were also working with two different frames – both were good.

Alongside this, we are working a lot to understand the tyres. At a first look we are far ahead, but Dovizioso also has strong pace and Viñales and Quartararo are also quite close to us. We need to understand how the grip will change tomorrow and see what happens.


We had a busy day today, we had a lot of things to try. An intense day with all that we had to do but I am satisfied with the lap time. Obviously our position is not ideal but the gap to the guy in front is very small.

On one side I’m happy and on another I could be happier but tomorrow we will be able to focus more on the race and improve our setup to go faster. Let’s hope the weather is OK and we will see what we can do!
