“Not a bad day at all but I was expecting to improve a little bit more my lap time in the afternoon, and I wasn’t able to do it. Anyway, we will try to focus on the sectors we have to improve because the lap times are really close. We’ll have to work on the details to make a big step tomorrow morning and be fast in the E-pole."

“Unfortunately, I missed the first session today due to technical problems. It’s not easy after a 24h race on a different bike, to be back on MotoE and for just one session. I am trying to get used to this bike that is so different from other bikes, plus, I have a brand new chassis, swingarm, everything after the crash in Jerez, so I need to adapt and understand the differences between the two bikes because they are not the same. Anyway, I am in the Top 10 XNUMX with only one session so it’s not so bad. I definitely want to improve because it is my home GP."
