MotoGP Le Mans: Fourth row for Dixon despite duff tyre

Britain’s Jake Dixon put in his best Moto2 qualifying performance of the year so far taking a fourth0row start at the Le Mans MotoGP but believes it could have been further up the grid.

In wet conditions, Dixon moved through qualifying one with a time that would have put him on the overall front row but he couldn’t replicate it because of a tyre problem

“I was second in Q1 with a lap time that would have put me on the front row if I had a tyre to do it again in Q2,” said Dixon.

“For some reason there was a problem with the tyre - I had zero grip and a big vibration from the bike. After four laps I had to pull in because it was so dangerous.

“It’s my best qualifying of the year so far but I am not happy because the potential was so much higher. Thanks to the team for a great job and now we’ll see what tomorrow brings.”
