"I'm satisfied with this first Free Pratices day because we founded really a good setting. Unfortunately, I used only some soft tires compound, except in just one lap when I run with other type, that I feel could be the ri ght choise for the race. We are working now in a right direction, more than during the last IRTA Test session and if I'll we able to reach a good rhythm I'll be very confident in a good race.. I'm quite satisfied with my best lap time scored today, but I hope to do a very good qualifying session to achieve tomorrow a better starting slot.. Here in Jerez, there aren't a lot straight to overtake the rivals, and so is really very important to be fast at the start in order to achieve the podium".
Alex Hofmann ( 1'42.515 1 session -1'41.835 2 session):
"I'm quite satisfied with this day, because we worked on the bike set-up and we tried some different kind of tires. My lap time could be better but we are quite near to achieve our aim. The Ducati-Bridgestone package at our disposal is very good and let us to be competitive but I'm sure that this championship will be hard, because everyone push at the maximum! Despite of my lap time, I'm equally satisfied because we had constant rythm for the race and we are better than in Qatar; the thing that I need to improve is my aceleration on track to have good qualifying for Sunday's race.
