Estoril -- Portugal, September 5: Roberto Rolfo is very satisfied with the way things have gone over the first day of practice for the 250cc Portuguese Grand Prix where he set the fourth fastest time. Rolfo set his time having put into practice the natural line of progression the team have followed, both in free-practice and the qualifying session.
Rolfo fought hard all day for his provisional front row position on the starting grid, ending the day with a time close to the fastest men, and the Fortuna Honda rider feels confident with the possible outcome of the race, providing the weather conditions. remain the same.
"In general we are satisfied with the way we have started the GP. We have to continue working in this way tomorrow to try and determine some points on both the chassis and the engine on this shot and demanding track. "Explained the Fortuna Honda rider.
"If the weather remains the same as today I don't think we will have any problem to improve the lap times tomorrow. If I get a good start position it will permit me to run well in the race and to retain my high position in the championship." Added Rolfo.
"The evolutionary work the team have made is adequate because in normal conditions the machine works well and working this way ensures the results will follow. I think being on the front row of the grid after the first day of practice is a good starting point. But without doubt we intend to improve again tomorrow." Asserted the rider from Altadis Tobacco Company.
