“I’m happy with the first day in Austria. Since the morning I have felt very comfortable with the motorcycle and the circuit and I have led the session. In the afternoon we have decided to work with the used tire and only in the end I have assembled the new one for two laps and we have set a good time. We need to work a little more to be able to make a good lap in the qualifying, but we are advancing in the correct line to find the optimal set-up.”
