<span lang="EN-US">“<em>This morning we made it to be pretty consistent and we were really happy about it. Our riders, as we can also see on the timesheet, are beginning to become more confident with the bike, but they still need some time to use in the best way the Desmosedici GP8 Sat potential. We have worked on the total package and we also tried some new rear tyres. In addition, today we have used for the first time the new front fork and from the first few laps we made it to improve our lap times by some tenth of a second. We are really happy about this, but we know we still have a lot of work to do</em>.”</span>

<span lang="EN-US">“<em>Also today we made it to improve. We are happy; we have to take a step at the time. We know we have much work to do, but we are confident. The bike is so powerful, I really like it and we only need to find the right set-up for my riding style. Other Teams had more opportunities to test before, while for us is basically the first time. But now we will go to for three more days of work and it is really important for us. The <place w:st="on"></place> <placename w:st="on"></placename> Phillip <placename w:st="on"></placename> Island circuit is one of the most beautiful and difficult circuits, it will be interesting to see how it will go.</em>”
