Joan Mir

“It was an important Sprint race for the information to give to the engineers, so I am happy we were able to get some good data. We have made some progress in some areas and need to keep working in others and at this track it really shows. For Sunday I think there’s still some margin to improve tomorrow and try to fight for the points which will be our objective. Right now, it’s about the future.”

Luca Marini

“I was able to finish much closer to my teammate today which is a positive. We are working a lot on the bike to keep improving and I think we found something at the Mugello Test which is working here. It’s better to ride the bike but we can keep working to gain on the overall performance. There wasn’t a lot of grip on track today, the conditions were very tricky and I think you could see that in the race.”
