“I’m quite satisfied with the qualifying, although there were some factors that affected my fast lap. We are improving lap by lap and I feel good with the team, with the bike, I like the track and the riders are strong, but step by step we must be able to go as fast as them. Tomorrow we can have fun and have a good race.”
