Augusto finishes promising day one at Sepang in sixteenth place
Changeable weather conditions, with high humidity and rain in the afternoon, and the difficulties of a varied and challenging track put Augusto Fernandez to the test, working on his Speed Up bike to find the best setting for the qualifying and race.
Day1 was good for Augusto who demonstrated his ability to manage and adapt to both track conditions, dry in the morning and wet in the FP2. Once again the youngster had to face a circuit that he did not know, demonstrating tenacity and dedication.

“I’m happy with this first day of free practice sessions. We worked well and I quickly adapted to the new circuit, both with dry track in FP1 and with wet FP2. We will continue our efforts in order to improve riding conditions before qualifying”.
