We are pleased with the performance of the bike's engine failure but we have lost a long time. The second day I used to repair the engine and try to solve the problem. Thanks to the efforts and work of the technical team, we were able to shoot the final day more normally. It was an interim solution to be on track, but at home we will fix it permanently. There bear in mind that while the factories do the work in winter "in camera" with the CRT work "with the public" and less time. We have a little patience. Despite the problems we are pleased with this test and very excited to continue working for the championship. "

That has made the times have not been as good as, I am convinced, could have been. Still, we have seen many positive things and many in which we still have margin. We have worked on the chassis and we managed to improve the entrance to turns and bouncing of the front. Rain has not left us to move forward but it was a fruitful day. There is still some way to go but the feeling is very good. "

The bike goes well, is sensitive to changes are made and why it's important. There was driven from the Valencia race, and yet, once I found comfortable with it. bike is "easy" and enjoyable to drive. I'm very animated over the next training. "

Fnr the last session has been a work plan that we could get done and thus know which direction to take. Water has reduced the running time but has been a good day. For the next test will be much more competitive, sure. "
