Press release available only in original language. 

Gresini #racing Team #moto3 rider #eneabastianini has won an important third place at the end of this afternoon’s Qualifying for the Grand Prix of the Americas: the 18-year-old Italian will then start tomorrow from the front row of the grid together with German Philipp Oettl and Spaniard Jorge Navarro.
 
Bastianini was quick out of the blocks taking full advantage of the slick tyres on a track still damp in some places following the rain that fell before the start of the session: the lap time of 2’18”996 enabled him to maintain the third position before the return of the rain, which has not allowed the riders to improve further in the final stages of the Qualifying.
 
Things didn’t go the same way for young rookie #fabiodigiannantonio: back on track with slick tyres after the first run with wet tyres, the 17-year-old rider from Rome failed to push hard in difficult conditions and as a result he will start tomorrow from the back of the grid with the 31st fastest time, 2’24”477.
