“We worked tirelessly the whole day due to the tricky weather conditions. These mixed weather conditions allowed us to understand the new electronic settings both under the rain and with a dry surface and I was able to improve the confidence with my Ducati Desmosedici, especially on the wet track. We are in 10th position, which is not a great result, but we are only 0.6 seconds behind Stefan Bradl, who set the 5th fastest time. I’m pretty confident about our potential, we can step up and make the second row of the grid tomorrow, so we will work to achieve that result.”

“Today we tried a lot of stuff and we understood that we were faster compared to the last races, in particular with the wet condition. The today’s performance allowed us to make a great and concrete work, useful for tomorrow and for the future.”
