Although conditions today were fine and sunny, the day started with the coldest temperatures yet recorded for a MotoGP™ session this year, as the track temperature at the start of Free Practice 1 was just 15°C. In the afternoon FP2 session, the track temperature peaked at 38°C which enabled riders to set an incredibly quick pace at the Aragon circuit. The almost perfect track conditions in the afternoon resulted in many riders trying a wide range of tire combinations, with both the soft and medium front slicks yielding positive results. For the rear tire, all three asymmetric slick options; the soft, medium and hard compounds also received praise from the riders with all of these specifications to be further tested tomorrow. With such strong performance achieved by riders on all the tires in the Aragon allocation, further evaluation is required tomorrow before riders can home-in on their preferred race tire combination.
