“Today was very difficult with the strong winds; it was really hard to feel anything. It’s difficult to say much more on this last day as we didn’t have a lot of track time. Nevertheless I’m happy with the set-up we have now. We’ve done all the jobs we wanted to do here and we’ve gathered a lot of useful information. We may not have been able to push for the lap times as much as we would have liked but I feel comfortable and confident with my bike and this is the most important thing. We will be back on track on Thursday for the first Grand Prix practice of the year and I feel positive that after this test, we can start the season strong.”
“The conditions today were very difficult! We couldn’t ride in the first session and then in the second it didn’t improve either but we didn’t want to waste more track time, so we tried to go out in the heavy winds. With the weather, the times were slower. There was no point to push at this point and risk a crash, so we just put in used tyres and focussed on gathering feedback on our set-up. In third practice we put in new tyres and immediately I could push a lot harder and make a good lap time. Unfortunately we were only on track for around ten minutes and then the weather got so bad the red flag had to come out to end the session. Although we have not had as much time on track as we would have like at this test, we have worked well and done a good job. I’m confident about the set-up we have going into this first race weekend here.”
