Romano Fenati: “Today in the two sessions of free practice we did a good job. We have a good setting, but we have to improve a little bit the braking phase. Tomorrow we will try to do a good qualifying.”
Adriàn Fernàndez: “This new circuit for me is quite difficult. I had a good feeling in the FP1, but I incurred in some difficulties in the FP2. I think that we are doing a good work with the bike. The feeling is overall good, thus I am looking forward to get on the track for the FP3 and for the qualifying of tomorrow.”
Max Biaggi – Team Owner: “The first day ended with a good result achieved by Romano. Adrián is a little bit behind, but we have to consider that it is the first time for him on the Assen circuit. As it usually happens on this track the weather is the protagonist and indeed due to the rain the second session was not really significant.”
