"The feeling I have is pretty similar to what I had in Montmeló. I think I made some improvements regarding my riding style, and I take a bit a of profit from it here in Assen. But it's only just the Friday. We are keeping our heads down, working very hard for the race. It's very important to get a good result and create good momentum, so we are going to try our best. We're pushing. We know the bike needs to improve in some areas, so we're going to try to do that tomorrow. Our main focus is the race and the first laps, so I'm going to do the same as I did in Catalunya and see if it works on Sunday. I will try to be on the front row, so I can make a good start. I also have some things to try tomorrow to see if I can improve my rhythm a little, because some riders are very fast. Let's see what we can do, but anyway it has been a good day. Even in the hot conditions I felt good on the bike with hard tyres, which means the bike is working."
