Declaraciones de los pilotos


“It was not a bad first day, especially since I think we made a bit of a mistake with thee tyre choice for our time attack. I went with a safer option but even like this we were able to get a lot of good information for tomorrow. Even like this we were really close to the top ten, so this is a positive way to start the weekend. There’s a small amount of time between all the riders, we need to find some time tomorrow but the situation has potential.”


“We worked a lot on the setup today and we were able to improve our lap time over the course of the day. It was a very normal Friday honestly, getting information about tyres and trying some things. The plan is to keep working along this path and close the distance to some potential points. There’s time to find and a few tenths will make a big difference this weekend.”
