The first day of practice in the Ricardo Tormo Circuit has been played under cold conditions but with the sun shining and the pupils of Sito Pons have taken the first day calmly in order to find good feelings.
Fernandez, after some complicated races, has returned to show his best level and has placed second in the combined times, with a better stopwatch of 1:35.198. Without a doubt, the best way to start the grand prix and with the intention of confirming it tomorrow in the qualifying.
The FlexBox HP 40 riders will be back on track at 10:55 to ride the last free practice and, the official qualifuing, at 15:05 hours.
Augusto Fernández, 2nd, 1:35,198 (+0,576)
“Happy with the first day, and that we have started the FP1 badly with problems on the bike, which has stopped us, but luckily, in the afternoon everything went well. I felt comfortable with the bike, rolling quite fast and the good feeling has returned. Tomorrow we have to go down a few more tenths, continue working and try to fight for pole position. “
