Stefan Bradl is keen to write off today's action at Le Mans after he could only qualify thirteenth on his LCR Honda. The German was the first rider to gamble on slick tyres, a decision that looked inspired when he took provisional pole, but a heavy crash at Musée cost him dearly and dropped him down the order.

Bradl admitted he was pushing slightly too hard when he lost control of the RC213V and has promised not to make the same mistake in the race.

“Saturday in Le Mans is a day to forget asap. This morning it wasn't so bad because we were using a different strategy than other guys. Honestly the cooler conditions caused me some problems because it took me a long time to feel the bike on new tyres. In general at the beginning of the qualifying session it was quite dangerous not really wet and not really dry but I felt pretty good. We were the first to go out on slick tyres because we expected some rain through the session so it was the right decision from our side. Unfortunately I was attacking too much and had a big crash but I am okay. I am still looking forward for tomorrow because I think we are still able to perform well”.
