Yet, he established himself and did lap times like the leaders towards halfway of the race. The Italian eventually crossed the line in 19th.
Following a Friday of improvements, Tech3 KTM Factory Racing’s Danilo Petrucci did another step throughout Saturday at the Losail International Circuit.

Following a rather difficult season opening last week, the Tech3 KTM Factory Racing newcomer Danilo Petrucci kicked off the Grand Prix of Doha with a better feeling today. Already in FP1 this afternoon, he managed to improve his lap time compared to last Friday by nearly one second. Free Practice two saw a lot of rush on track and in the garage, but still the Italian kept his head cool to finish in a fine P12, missing out on what could have been a provisional Q2 spot by just 0.055 seconds.
