Positive start for Augusto Fernández in Malaysia
The riders of the Sito Pons team, Augusto Fernández and Lorenzo Baldassarri, have shown that they aim to continue with their recent good form in Sepang this weekend and have dedicated the first day to familiarising themselves with the Malaysian track layout and work on the correct set-up of their Kalex.
It was a positive day for Augusto Fernández. The Pons rider is getting more settled in the intermediate category and is already a regular in the top 10. In the first free practice and with the delicate conditions of the track, Fernández closed the session with the ninth fastest time. And, in the second, eleventh, stopping the clock in 2.07.797, knowing the points to improve on for tomorrow and confident to continue on the same trajectory throughout the weekend.
Augusto Fernández, 11th, 2: 07.797 (+0.869)
“The first day in Malaysia went quite well. In the morning, the weather was a little weird without letting us do a dry session but we have been able to set decent times. We need a little bit more than me to fine tune the bike, but I am calm for tomorrow as we will take that step forward “.
