Circuit de Catalunya
Weather affected the performance of Karel Abraham
Grand Prix of Catalunya had a difficult start for Karel Abraham who finished in fifteenth place in the combined timesheet of the first and the second free practice.
"I cannot be satisfied with the result of the first and the second free practice,“ said Karel Abraham after his return to the garage of the Cardion AB Motoracing team.
Both practices have been affected by rain which caused that the Czech motorcycle rider completed only 20 laps and set a best time of 1.46,280 which placed him in fifteenth place, just 3,340 seconds behind the fastest rider Casey Stoner.
"The weather wasn’t ideal. While in the first practice it was raining in the end, in the second practice it was raining at the beginning and that affected times which I reached."
Grand Prix of Catalunya continues tomorrow on the third free practice and qualification.
"We have to change the set-up of the motorcycle before the qualification. We had a big problems especially with the grip of the tyres which was bad for both dry and wet conditions," added.
