Red Bull KTM Tech3’s MotoGP rookie Miguel Oliveira continued in the UK where he left off last time in Austria.

The fast Portuguese initiated the British Grand Prix with a fastest lap of 2:00.360 minutes, which made him snatching eighth in an intense second Free Practice at the longest track of the calendar, finishing day one as the fastest KTM rider of the field.

Meanwhile Hafizh Syahrin came back from his huge crash during the Austrian round today and was able to enhance his feeling between FP1 and FP2. The Red Bull KTM Tech3 rider lowered his lap time by 0.641 seconds ahead of tomorrow’s third Free Practice session at 9.55 local time.

Position: 8th

Time: 2:00.360

"It was a positive day for us. Obviously, we started again with a good FP2 inside the top 10. We did a decent job today, understanding the new asphalt, the tyres, so it was quite interesting to go and really feel this new tarmac. Despite the small issue we had this morning, I could do well on each lap. It was just a matter of understanding what could be our pace, but anyway we know, the lap times will drop tomorrow, so we have to keep focused on trying to find more speed in order to be in Q2 directly tomorrow morning after FP2."

Position: 21st

Time: 2:02.417

Laps: 30

"The first day was quite ok. We know that we can still improve our speed, which we were missing a little bit. Also, my position on the bike is not really comfortable at the moment, especially the elbow, which I bruised at the last race. The two big crashes in Austria didn’t help my confidence at all, so I tried to gain this back. In FP2 it was not so bad, but tomorrow is another day, where we aim to improve our lap time and our general pace. At least, I didn’t do any mistakes, the bike was working well and I was working on myself, which I’ll continue on Saturday."
