Disappointment. We will start from seventh row in Indianapolis

Karel Abraham will start to the race in Indianapolis from seventh row. Although Czech rider got faster in qualifying practice respect to Friday, it was enough just for twenty-first place on the grid. The Czech rider loses to the fastest Marc Marquez 2,75 seconds.

„Well, I´m really angry. I can say nothing except that I pushed on maximum, but I simply cannot be faster. We suffered some problems with the front, the bike is really unpredictable and I can´t rely on it. Tomorrow I´ll try to do my best to get better position.“



Marco Grana, chief mechanic Cardion AB Motoracing

„The true is that we didn´t expect to be so slow. We haven´t solved the problem with front tyre. Karel cannot trust the front wheel and he´s scared to push hard, because the bike is unpredictable. We had tried many options and setups, but the problem is still there. I think it´s coming from the new asphalt and almost all riders suffered this. The only way is to try to change Karel´s style. The positive thing is that we reached 1:34,4 completely alone without riding in slip stream behind another rider. This is quite promising for the race. If Karel make good start, he would stay around 18th place and we can still fight for points.”
