Rider Statements


“FP3 was a bit of a complicated session and we had our first crash since returning, but there were still some positives. It was nice to make an amazing save like this again and then in the afternoon I was feeling better. In the mornings I am struggling to find the rhythm and ride well at the moment, but then we get better – it’s normal. I don’t have any target for the race, it’s only about seeing what we can do and how the body reacts after 23 laps. I am looking forward to it!”


“It was another difficult day today and we were chasing the grip again. The fall in Q1 hurt us because I think we could have gained some places if we finished this lap. Starting this far back always makes for a complicated race and especially here in Aragon the first few corners can be critical. Let’s see what we can do in the race, and let’s see how the grip is for the race.”
