Britain’s Jake Dixon took his best Moto2 qualifying position to date at the Brno MotoGP round but was left a little frustrated despite securing a third-row start
The Sama Qatar Nieto rider eached Q2 after going through Q1, a session in which he set the third best time after leading for a spell. Gaining experience in changeable conditions, Dixon was able to compete with the top riders, but when the track dried out he began to struggle.
“It’s frustrating, because at the end of Q1 it was very wet, but when I went back out in Q2 it was drying out very quickly by the second lap. I don’t know why that was,” said Dixon.
“It was too late to change tyres and I stayed out, trying my best. It is not the ideal situation; I could have done more for the team, but this was the safe bet: Going out with wet tyres. Maybe I would take more of a risk if it were to happen again, but it’s my first time at this track and I’m using this year to learn.”
