“Today I have not been so lucky. I started the FP3 with a good feeling, thanks to the great work and changes we were doing on my bike. I have not been able to sign a goo lap time during the last free practice, as we were trying different things for the race, but I was thinking to end up a good qualifying result and obtain a pass to go to QP2. Unfortunately, I ended up just one position behind the first qualified riders, but for sure tomorrow I will give my best to stay with the first group.”

It has also been so hard signing a fast lap time, as yesterday, after the crash, I couldn’t made many laps and try different settings on my bike. The pain I received during the crash, caused some problems, but I am pretty sure that tomorrow will be better, so for sure I will give all my best in order to do a good race.”
