Day one of
the Spanish Grand Prix saw mixed weather conditions hinder times, with ominous
clouds descending upon the Circuito de Jerez just before the first Moto3
practice got underway. As the rain arrived the majority of the field were
forced to quickly adjust their machines to an unexpected wet setting.
With the sun
trying to break through, Free Practice two saw an equally disruptive session
with both wet and dry conditions on track hindering the majority of the Moto3
Team riders Adam Norrodin and Ayumu Sasaki concluded the day with a combined
position of 21st [Adam] and 25th [Ayumu] place.
“This morning we had wet conditions so we didn’t make so many laps.
The times were not there but we were able to get a feeling for our set-up and
how the bike performs in the rain. In FP2 it was half and half. We waited a
little bit at first to see if it would dry out completely but it didn’t. We
went out for the final twenty minutes on a soft front and medium rear tyre.
Towards the very end of the session many riders returned to the box to change
to full softs but we decided to just stay out and focus on finding a good
rhythm rather than chasing the lap time. For sure with the soft tyre front and
rear we can go faster, so this we can do tomorrow. We will be up to speed for
“The rain arrived at the very start of FP1, so we had to change
the set-up of the bike; we got out in the last ten minutes and my feeling was
quite good, it just wasn’t enough time. However I’m happy that we could at
least test the engine and collect some data in the wet. Second practice was a
lot harder because this time the conditions were half and half; it’s a shame
because it’s hard to feel like you are making any progress without the fast
times, but still it is good to make some laps and get a feel for the conditions
and get used to the track again. I hope for better weather tomorrow; I am ready
