Bradl 'not thrilled' with second day

"The weather was incomprehensible and the crash this morning was quite hard" - Stefan Bradl.
Reigning Moto2 world champion Stefan Bradl had a painful second day at Silverstone, falling on his out-lap during this morning's session.

The tumble was blamed on the strong winds and cold track temperatures that make it very difficult to get heat into the tyres.

Bradl hurt the fourth finger on his left hand in the fall, but was able to contest qualifying this afternoon when he claimed ninth place.

“Honestly, I am not thrilled about this second day,” said the Honda LCR rider, winner of last year's Moto2 race and fifth in Friday practice.

“The weather was incomprehensible and the crash this morning was quite hard. I was not at 100% for qualifying because of the finger injury and also in the afternoon the weather was very strange.

“We could not make a proper run on soft tyres because it was raining here and there around the track. At the end I was not able to find real confidence in the bike and we were also struggling with the strong wind.

“So it's not the perfect day for us, but I am still confident for tomorrow: we are not that far from the front group and I hope the weather can be less unsettled.”
