Step back in Qualifying after superb FP3 but Augusto still aiming for points
Young Spanish rookie Augusto Fernandez got a fabulous sixth place in FP at Misano3, confirming his steady growth.
Unfortunately, in the afternoon’s Qualifying he did not get better because of the lack of grip in the back.
Tomorrow’s warm-up session will be crucial to recapturing this morning’s good feeling and being ready to make the most of the race.
AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ #37 – 25° in 1’38.739
“I’m so sorry to start from the ninth row, it is not for sure what we expected after the great FP3! We had a good time and a good lap time, then in the QP we wanted to make that extra step, but we did not get the result hoped for. The back was not good, we could not even repeat this morning’s time, no grip. We know we can do this race well, the points area remains our goal”.
