To follow the comments of Romano, Adriàn, and Max Biaggi our Team Owner.
Romano Fenati: “Throughout the qualifying we did some modifications that unfortunately did not allow us to be very fast. Apart from all I think that we could do well. Tomorrow in race it will be important to start well from the eleventh position, to remain in the leading group.”
Adriàn Fernàndez: “Today was difficult but I manage to perform well in the FP3, since I miss the direct access to the Q2 by few thousands. The Q1 was difficult since I did my time alone. I am sure that the race will be better.”
Max Biaggi – Team Owner: “To be honest today I expected something better from the qualifying, because I am sure that Romano could be even faster. I believe that tomorrow he could improve his performances. Adriàn improved in the free practice, but he did not manage to do a further step forward in the qualifying. We got to work to fight in the leading group.”
