In Silverstone, Abraham will start from the 24 th position

Despite the strong pain, more than one second improvement compared to Friday. This is the result of qualifying practice of Karel Abraham, which means the twenty-fourth position on the grid during the Grand Prix of Great Britain.

All day long, we had a problem to get under 2:05. During the qualifying practice, I tried to push it at the limit and after all, it is 2:04,133 after a little mistake. If I had not make a mistake we could have reached the time under 2:04. However, it would have no impact on the position. The bike is running well but the foot is limiting me a lot. I don´t want to make any estimation for tomorrow. It looks it´s going to be raining and conditions could be completely different than today.

We are 1.1 faster compared the yesterday, so the result is not so bad. Touching 2:04, 1 limit is the best we can do in our situation. Unfortunately, we stay very far from last years’ best, when we had been of 0, 9 second faster. It will be very hard to finish the race, as the physical condition of Karel is far from being perfect. It would be easier compared to Brno, but still very hard. We can only hope to finish and stay close to other riders. We need to be fit to race at 100 percent. Hopefully we will be ready in Misano.
