“The Team has done a fantastic job this week end, It’s the third week end in a row without crashes, which is already better than the last season. In the race we wanted more I believed we should be on the podium but we struggled a little bit. We chose the soft tires and the pace in the first five, six laps was not enough, but it’s my decision so I made a mistake, then I pushed in and I has a similar pace with the guys but was only the same, and in the end the last two laps  I pushed and tried to make the podium but was not possible. The Team did a good job all weekend, we are not really happy because we want to win, again we made a good step in a good way and the season is very long, we have 13 races to get the points back”.

“E’ stata una buona qualifica perché tutto il fine settimana siamo stati vicini quindi non eravamo troppo preoccupati per la posizione perché ci siamo concentrati sulla moto cercando di trovare un feeling migliore. All’inizio delle qualifiche abbiamo provato delle modifiche alla forcella che non erano male e questo ci ha dato un po’ di informazioni, ma non era la direzione migliore, poi siamo tornati a soluzioni che già conosciamo con delle piccole variazioni e il risultato è stato positivo, mi sento bene sulla moto. Tutto il fine settimana siamo andati forte e spero domani di poter fare un buon warm up. In gara tutto può succedere, ma mi sento bene e sento di poter lottare per vincere, o almeno per il podio. E’ bello che su pista diversa siamo di nuovo davanti, vediamo domani. Grazie alla mia squadra che han fatto un lavoro fantastico dalla prima sessione ad oggi”.

“Today was really good, in the second session we were only 0.3 from the first time and we tried a lot on the bike. We made a big step from this morning, we did not find the perfect set it but I feel quite good and I think we can make a good step tomorrow. We were first for a lot in the middle of the session, I feel good, I feel like I can be there, I enjoyed this track, I have to suit my style a little bit and with one more step tomorrow I can fight with the guys and hopefully qualify the front row ready for a good race on Sunday”.
