"After the last race, we expected the first two sessions to go a bit better, especially since this track suits our bikes. This morning we suffered a lot of front tyre degradation and also the rear grip wasn't as good as we expected. Due to this, we spent most of our time comparing all the tyre specifications, both front and rear, to get a clear understanding of where we would stand for the race. Though our riders showed good pace and we managed to achieve our target of having them in the top-10, we still have some work to do, because the gap to first needs to be reduced. It didn't help that both Maverick and Vale were disturbed by other riders during their time attack, so we will have to work hard in FP3 to make up for it."
