Frustrating qualifying sees John McPhee line up 20th on Sachsenring grid
Today’s qualifying at the Sachsenring proved a frustrating experience for SAXOPRINT RTG rider John McPhee, who struggled to find the form he had been able to show in yesterday’s FP2 – largely beset by grip issues, and then towards the end of the session being hindered by traffic.
As a result he will start tomorrow’s Moto3 race from 20th slot on the grid.
John McPhee: P20 (+1437):
“Not the qualifying I was hoping for. I did not find real grip. So everybody what waiting and going very slow. I tried to push alone, but there always what somebody in front, blocking the line. At the end it was very difficult. I almost started one lap at the end, but one rider came into my way again. I Know That I can go faster than I did in the qualifying. Tomorrow is the race so we will see what will happen.”
