Bo Bendsneyder has reasonably recovered from his disappointing first day on the TT circuit. It will start on Sunday from P13 in Moto2.
The only Dutchman in the world championship felt a queasy feeling from Friday’s free practice sessions, even crashing out of the top 20. grumbled at the time that a lot had to be done in order to drive better on the Kalex. The 22-year-old Rotterdam feared being cheated on his home circuit.
Through the back door of Q1, Bendsneyder was able to join the top eighteen drivers who will be racing in Q2 for the best starting point on Sunday. The Pertamina Mandalika SAG team driver will have to make do with P13 on Sunday. That will likely disappoint, as Bendsneyder hasn’t come close to his time in Q1 in the more significant Q2.
Spaniard Raul Fernandez will start from pole position in moto 2, followed by Australian Remy Gardner and Britain’s Sam Luiz. The Drenthe RW Racing team drivers couldn’t break any on Saturday. Malaysian expert Hafiz Seahren (27) was the slowest ever during qualifying and will start in Moto2 from P30 on Sunday. His teammate and ten-year junior Barry Baltos of Belgium fared slightly better with the P28.
