First Day in Mugello

"If we look at the position it may seem like a complicated day, but instead I am rather satisfied with the way we worked today. We are one second behind the leaders, the new fairing let us make a small step forward. We are struggling with rear tyre grip at the moment, in the sense [...]

"Unfortunately, I was unable to finish the race today. The pain in my ankle just got to be too much. The situation got worse day by day and, also thinking of the next race in Mugello, we decided to contain the damage. We will continue working on recovery now, trying to rest the ankle and [...]

First Day in Jerez

"We’re working well. Today I compared the two bikes, which are set up differently, clarifying our ideas on a few aspects. We need to find the right compromise, but I found a better feeling than I expected to. Right now, it seems like we can do more, especially in braking. We need to slow the [...]
