During the third round of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, Lukas Tulovic achieved a great improvement during FP3 and E-Pole lowering his best lap time by almost a second. This allowed him to get fourth place in the E-Pole, but he will start the race from the front row due to the penalty of Matteo Ferrari.
On the home circuit, Tommaso Marcon also made great strides throughout the weekend. In the decisive E-Pole he was 1.492 seconds faster than in the first Friday session. With a time of 1:44.269 the young Italian rider qualified in eighth position, third row of the starting grid.
“My target was to make progress during the sessions and it fully went to plan. So, during the Free Practices we went faster each time and made a decent lap in FP3 in order to gain a good base for the E-Pole. With my E-Pole I’m not completely happy, because I thought I can go 0,1 or 0,2 seconds faster. But still my position is quite good, I’m really happy about that. Thanks to my team for giving me such a great bike to do this lap time. I’m looking forward to fight tomorrow in the race."
"This was my first real E-Pole, because the first one in Jerez was quite difficult and the second one there I didn’t start right. So, finally here I managed to do a good lap, although I had a minor wobble at the exit of the last corner, which cost me two positions. But for sure, it’s better than what we made in Spain. We keep improving and working step by step. So, now our focus is fully on tomorrow."
