Takaaki Nakagami Completes Friday Practices at Buriram

The Japanese rider started the early morning session occupying the Top 10 positions, finished 11th in the FP1, and, alongside the crew, found some improvements. In the afternoon, when pushing to go straight to Q2, they canceled his two fast lap times due to a yellow flag on track after another rider's crash. Despite the position, the pace and the feedback after the sessions are solid, and the team is ready to take another step to be prepared for tomorrow's Sprint.
