Bendsneyder finished a positive Saturday at the Malaysian track. After a difficult day of free practice interrupted by rain, our rider was able to overcome the situation, getting a direct pass to Q2. In the second qualifying session the Dutchman imposed himself from the first minutes, lapping in the top five and being able to fight for the third row on the grid. Finally Bendsneyder will start from twelfth position, confident for the race.

“Today we made a step forward compared to last day. I’m very happy with this step forward, although I’m not satisfied with the result. We were fighting for the third row on the grid, but in the end we will do it from the fourth. Tomorrow in the warm up we will try to improve more and we will keep an eye on the weather, although I look strong in both dry and wet conditions I can’t wait for tomorrow”
