Pasini will start seventh the Grand Prix of the Americas
 
Good session of the rider of the FlexBox HP 40, that will head the third line of the grid; complicated qualifying session for Baldassari, fifteenth.
 

The weather has completely conditioned the track activity this Saturday in the Circuit of the Americas. In the morning, a heavy rain with a thunderstorm, has forced to cancel the last free practice before playing the qualifying session that determines the order on the grid.

Thanks to the good work of yesterday, Baldassarri and Pasini have qualified directly in Q2, after being sixth and eighth, respectively.

Pasini, who has shown to be in a good level, has been able to complete a good qualifying. Improving his time lap after lap, the rider of the FlexBox HP 40 has stopped the clock in 2:11.528, a little more than half a second from pole position and which serves him to start from the seventh position, place that will allow him to fight for the places of honor in tomorrow's race.

Lorenzo Baldassarri, the leader of the championship, has had more difficulties today. The pupil of Sito Pons has not been comfortable with the complicated conditions of the track and has not been able to show all his potential. Start fifteenth and confident to take advantage of tomorrow's warm up to take that step forward and make a good race.

Tomorrow the rider of the FlexBox HP 40 will dispute the race at 12:20 local time -19:20 Spanish peninsular time-, scheduled to 18 laps.

Lorenzo Baldassarri, 15th, 2: 12.664 (+1.789)
"Qualifying practice in a very strange conditions, without getting the result we wanted. Not having rode the last free has conditioned the day, but I am optimistic and I am confident that tomorrow we will improve and we will take a step forward, because what is important is the race and I'm sure we will be competitive. As I said, the conditions of the track were complicated and I did not feel comfortable to ride strong. We start from the fifth row but as always we will give the maximum".

Mattia Pasini, 7th, 2: 11.528 (+0.653)
"I am very happy with today's result. We have done a good job with the team, considering that we were not able to ride in the morning and that it is the third time I am on this bike. I did it even better, but with only 15 minutes of session, with some complicated conditions, making a mistake was easy. I am very happy with the feeling with the team, they are helping me a lot and let's see what we are going to do tomorrow and if I can help in the race in some way to Baldassarri."
