“Today I am very pleased to see Lukas Tulovic for the second time in a row on the front row. This is a great achievement and I would like to congratulate him and the team. But I would also like to say, that I am not happy and I think this is not correct, what happened to our second rider Tommaso Marcon. His bike had a defect and couldn’t start. Then by the time, the Energica guys came and found out what was wrong on the bike, Tommaso entered the E-Pole gate with the red light. Therefore, he was black flagged and I was honestly hoping that he was going to be given another lap to go, because I think this would have been fair, but unfortunately that was not the case and we were denied to do one lap. We’ve been here for a week, waiting to do our one lap E-Pole and we were denied to do this, that was completely outside of our responsibility and I would just like to say that I’m not happy and I don’t think this is the right behavior towards our rider".
