JORGE NAVARRO #9:“Super happy with how the test went. We worked well and fast from day one. Yesterday we did not manage to improve our lap but we used the three sessions to understand which way to go by managing to take that step forward that we needed. During today’s day we focused on the set-up and in the last session, with the same race conditions, I found an excellent feeling. We started the session by trying to make a simulation of the second part of the race with the used tyres, then I went back to the garage to put the new ones and petrol simulating the first part of the race instead. The results were really positive, incredible feeling and good rhythm. We finished these pre-season tests with many data collected, a good taste in the mouth and a great desire to start the championship!”
FABIO DI GIANNANTONIO #21:“Super satisfied with the work done in these three days because we have always been growing. Glad, we worked well and concentrated on the race. The bike improved a little in all aspects and in the end a great time came without looking for it. All positive, I feel really ready for the Grand Prix of Qatar, let’s go! “
