Karel Abraham to start from fourth row

While the other riders changed tires in the last moments of the Gran Premio Aperol di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini qualifying session, Abraham continued on his worn tires to post a time of 1‘34.727. The Czech rider found a satisfactory tire combination that allowed him to finish just 0.135 seconds behind Hector Barbera - who was ninth and also the fastest rider in the field aboard a Ducati.

Karel Abraham: 
“I’m satisfied with the result of the qualifying practice. Of course, it could be even better, but I am glad that the gap between me and the riders in front of me isn’t too big. We used a combination of the hard rear tire and soft front from the first free practice and it works well. We will make some adjustments on the set-up of the motorcycle tomorrow and then we’ll see.”
