For the first day of the eighth round in 2018, Remy Gardner, who just came back from injury two weeks ago, showed up with a solid performance. The Australian lapped the TT Circuit 40 times and lowered his best lap by 0.3 seconds from FP1 to FP2 this afternoon, although he struggled to find a good feeling with the softer tyre option. His Tech3 Racing teammate Bo Bendsneyder experienced similar matters. In front of his home crowd the Dutch rider concluded Friday just 0.603 seconds behind the top 10 and is eager to improve before the all-important Qualifying session tomorrow afternoon.

Position: 21st - Time: 1’39.107 - Laps: 40

Remy GardnerI would have liked a bit more today, but with the 3-tyre we’ve been doing ok. I think we could have improved a little bit more, but we wanted to try the softer option and I thought we’d probably gain there. Yet, the bike was just not rideable with this. This is the first time, that we are in this situation, so this is a bit confusing. I mean with the number 3 tyre we are feeling pretty confident, so we’ll keep on working with this one for the rest of the weekend and I’m sure we can pull out a decent result tomorrow. We’ll work hard tonight and then giving it all tomorrow!

Position: 23rd - Time: 1’39.182 - Laps: 40

But still, we need a better place and try to find these small things to improve for tomorrow and show that we can be there.
