Complicated Qualifying session at Phillip Island
The second day of practice of the Grand Prix of Australia has seen the typical climate continue to change. With low temperatures, today was accompanied by strong gusts of wind and occasional rain, leaving the track in really complicated conditions.
Saturday was difficult for Augusto Fernandez. In the morning practice, the Spaniard managed to be in a very good fourth position and wanted to reaffirm the good sensations in the afternoon’s Qualifying.
With some tyre problems however, Augusto was not able to squeeze the most out of the new tyres and lacked a good lap to place him in the front positions.
He took thirteenth on the grid with a tome of 1: 34.094, and he hopes to make a good start and climb positions since he has pace to be up towards the front.

“It’s been difficult for us to catch the rhythm with the first tyre and, although we improved with the second one, we still had something missing, we lost a lot in the last part, but I hope to take advantage of the warm up to find those things we are missing We are not bad at the pace so if we can make a good start we can be fighting for the front positions.”
