BRITISH GP QUALIFYING SESSION: THIRD ROW FOR CORSI IN TOMORRO’S RACE
The typical British weather never stops, even in the second day here in Silverstone. Teams are working hard to get the perfect setup on a slippery track. Riders had to deal with an intermittent rain which put them to a hard test. Simone Corsi and Speed Up team focused on the third free practice session of this morning to try different set-ups. In qualifying session, although the rain and the crash, Simone reached the ninth position and so the third row of the grid.

“The crash in mid-turn had partly compromised the qualifying session because when I came back on track I had a different feeling with the bike. We are ready for tomorrow, in both weather conditions. We can have a good race!”
NINTH TIME FOR SIMONE CORSI ON THE COMBINED FREE PRACTICE TIMES OF THE OCTO BRITISH GRAND PRIX
The first day of the Silverstone Grand Prix started with rain as the main protagonist, which forced all riders to go back to the pit box in both sessions because of tricky track conditions. When the track looks neither dry nor wet, it becomes unnecessary to ride. Therefore, Simone and Speed Up team had time to analyze all technical information taken during the few laps of the two sessions. As every year at Silvertone GP, weather will be the deciding factor of the racing weekend, so a right bike setting is essential for tomorrow’s qualifying session, hoping for defined weather conditions.

“I have always liked this original and fast track. Today the irregular rain forced us to stopped after few laps in both practices. The feeling with the bike is not bad, mostly with the adjustment of the rear. In tomorrow’s last free practice session we will try to get a good setting for brilliant qualifying session”.
