There is no doubt that Mugello is one of the nicest circuits on the calendar, but it looks like it’s not one of our strongest tracks this year. Having said that, today we mostly struggled in an area that we didn’t expect. However, I’m confident that we will be able to fix it in time for FP3. We lost some precious time comparing a new aerobody that we introduced today. Fabio was also unlucky that he ran into a yellow flag during what would probably have been his best lap.
Franky focused on improving his riding today. His pace is better than the combined free practice results suggest, as he struggled during the time attack. We will try to help him improve this aspect for tomorrow.
FP3 will be important for us. We have only one aim: to have both riders in Q2.
