After provisionally holding pole position, the Czech rider remained in the top ten for the majority of the session, progressing in pace throughout and setting his fastest time on his last lap.
With Fahmi we’ve had a hard weekend; from the start he’s been struggling and the results have not been good. He’s qualified in thirtieth place and this is absolutely not where he should be. Coming from Argentina where the bike felt pretty good for him and then coming here where we’ve had to change a lot is a bit of a concern. We need to analyse why, speak to him and work out why he is losing so much time in the last sector. It will be a very hard race again for him tomorrow, so he just has to try his best and we need to get as much information as possible from it to see what we can do to resolve this.”
