Xavier Cardelus

“We finished the first tests of the year; I am very happy I already missed go on the bike. The first day was basically recovering sensations, from the second day we had the option to try new rear tires and personally I think they are much better than those of last year has adapted me much better and I have felt very comfortable. Today we have finished well maybe we have lacked to be able to make more laps, but I think we have got a good “time attack” that I am sure we will improve. The weekend summary is positive, I am very satisfied with how we have worked the whole team”.

“I have felt very good, I knew it would be a great challenge, but I am positive, and I am happy for the team placed in me to be able to run this Championship. Everything is totally different for me, we have a lot to work on, so we can know it is for the best. I will try to do a good job; the tires give me confidence and my goal is to move forward to be as best as possible thinking of the first race of the Championship”.
