At the end of the first free practice day of the Moto2 Barcelona weekend, Speed Up rider Augusto Fernandez lies twenty-fifth – following two sessions of initial setup work and developing towards the race itself.

“Initially we had some problems with the setup, but we managed to fix it at the end of the session. I’m happy cause we have immediately improved the feeling, especially in the last part of the track where I found problems at first. In the afternoon, we worked for the race. With the used tyre we were able to do the same time we took this morning. We are satisfied with this, but we have to continue to work ahead of the race”.
