#10 LUCA MARINI (SKY VR46 AVINTIA TEAM) – 1’54,432
“It’s been a very nice day”: together with the group of all the riders the FP1 has excited me. I am very happy with the work we have done and the updates that Ducati has brought me. I am more comfortable riding the bike and this is very important for the entire duration of the race. We’ve made some modifications to the settings and the time per lap has also improved. I lose on the T2 and T3 I don’t know why so I willhave to review the data to understand it.”
#23 ENEA BASTIANINI – 1’54.228
“It’s been very exciting to try my Ducati at official free practice before my first Grand Prix. This morning is going very well, although on the last lap had an unimportant drop in corner one, immediately in the second practice , we solved with medium tires. We tried a first time attack that didn’t go well but we’ve finally managed to improve. At first it is difficult to understand what the limit of the tyres is, with the new tyres the line is different. Tomorrow I hope I can improve to get on the grid in front as I can.”
