Augusto sets to work in Thailand
The MotoGP World Championship has started its first ‘flyaway’ race visiting the Thai circuit of Buriram and has done under conditions of high temperatures and humidity.
For the FlexBox HP 40 riders, Augusto Fernández and Lorenzo Baldassarri, today has been positive, having both good feelings.
In the morning, Fernández has already managed to mark a very fast time, finishing in second position and, in the afternoon, despite some problems of set-up, he has been able to improve his time in two tenths, marking a better stopwatch of 1:36.122, which gives him the ninth position in the combined times and prepared for tomorrow’s qualifying.
The FlexBox HP 40 riders will start tomorrow the second day of practice at 10.55am local time -5:55am Spanish peninsular time- with the last free and, the official timed, at 3:05pm local time -10:05am Spanish peninsular time -.
Augusto Fernández, 9th, 1: 36.122 (+0.166)
“The first day was a little difficult in Thailand. In the morning it went very well, but in the afternoon we missed a bit with the set-up. Despite this, I think we have everything quite clear, the difference with the first is very small, so tomorrow we will return to the initial setting for more.”
