"The poor weather conditions from this morning cost us some crucial track time. With FP3 being cancelled, FP4 became even more crucial, but unfortunately the condition of the track was not perfect. The wind picked up too, and was quite strong, so all in all it wasn't a straightforward qualifying day. Valentino was feeling comfortable in FP4 and it showed in the Q2 session, as he took second place on grid for tomorrow. Maverick suffered from today's track conditions because it was very different from yesterday's and unfortunately the bike didn't behave as it did then. Having our riders start from first and second row is very important for tomorrow's race. The 20-minute long Warm Up session is always important, but tomorrow even more so, because we need to finalise the set-up and establish the right tyre choice for the race."
