With a huge FP3 improvement of 0.902 seconds compared to yesterday, Miguel Oliveira managed to go straight to Q2 at the sunny MotorLand Aragón circuit today. The Portuguese landed the eighth fastest time in Qualifying, improving again on his fastest this morning, which means he will start tomorrow’s 23 laps encounter at 13:00 local time from the third row of the grid.

Feeling well from the first minutes of FP1, Red Bull KTM Tech3’s Iker Lecuona showed one more time today, that he can fight for the top 10 of the ultra-competitive premier class. The Spaniard was sixth fastest in FP3 this morning to secure a first ever Q2 ticket in his rookie campaign. In Qualifying he performed strong once again to end up in P11, which means he will start from the fourth row in tomorrow’s 10th round of 2020.

"I’m happy about that Qualifying, it’s for sure a nice come back. We managed to go to Q2 several times, but finishes just in P12, which means we couldn’t take the maximum out of the position. But now, I feel like we gained a little bit of speed back, I feel competitive and for sure, tomorrow we can have a good race. I think we have a strong pace, we can manage the tyres much better than last weekend, so we have a good opportunity to score decent points."

"I’m really happy about today! It was the first time in Q2 for me and the lap time I did in FP3 was great, as it was quick and I was also doing it all alone. I have a very good pace for tomorrow’s race and I know it’s possible to stay in this position in order to fight for the top 10 again. I have to admit, I was not absolutely satisfied about my Qualifying, because I think I could have been gone a bit faster. Anyway, I’m all focused for the race and hope I can stay inside the top 10."
