"Overall, this was a good day for us. Maverick is looking very strong and he is feeling comfortable. Even if it's just the first day, it's a warm welcome to the weekend and the top result bodes well for the next few days. On the other hand, we started the day with a bit of a delay on Vale's side of the garage, due to a small technical issue. But in the end, he managed to limit the damage from loss of track time, so he is still inside the top-10, which was the target for today. During tomorrow's FP3 we will be completely focused on going straight into Q2 with both riders, and in the afternoon, in FP4, we will put all our effort into preparing for the race, because we expect the conditions to be similar to those of Sunday's race. This will also be the right time to decide on the tyre specs."
