"Starting from this morning, we had mixed results in the garage. On the bright side, Maverick's speed is impressive. He featured at the top of the timesheets for almost every session this weekend, and it's not just his one-lap speed that's strong, he also has a competitive pace. His first-row start gives him a good chance to be a contender at the front in tomorrow's race, and we think we still have some room for improvement in sector 3. Valentino was originally also lined-up to take part in Q2, but exceeding track limits in FP3 cost him dearly. He had to take part in Q1 and, to make matter worse, didn’t have a good feeling on his first time attack. The second run was better, but it wasn't enough to get him through to Q2. He will have to start from more towards the back than we had anticipated, but Assen is known for its multi-rider battles at the front, so the aim for him is to have a good start and opening laps tomorrow."
