“It was a good Friday, I’m feeling good with my bike. We started well, with a good feeling so I’m happy. We will try to improve tomorrow. We’ve been working for a week since Imola because there my feeling with the bike was different than usual. We tried to study and improve for this race. I was comfortable in both wet and dry conditions today, but I would prefer a dry race tomorrow.”
