GP OF SPAIN Q1
Baldassarri qualifies 21st and will start from the seventh row at the GP of Spain
The second day at the Angel Nieto Circuit saw the rider of the Italian-Swiss team concentrate on the set up of the bike ahead of the race. The team focused on turning and working on the front end. The search for improved braking performance continues.
Lorenzo Baldassarri, despite a crash without consequences in turn 6 during FP3, improved his feeling with his F2 recording his best time of the morning in 1’41.603. Baldassarri ended his day with a positive progression in Q1, thanks also to the teamwork undertaken with his teammate Corsi, touching access to Q2 by just over a tenth.
Lorenzo Baldassarri #7
“Today we worked a lot on the race pace, what we lacked was the fast lap and it was a shame because with my teammate we were making a good strategy. The wind that came up in the afternoon made it very difficult to work on the run-in and it was a shame because I was doing a good lap in Simone’s slipstream. Unfortunately, in T4, where I could have made a step with a good reference in front, I arrived too far behind and I couldn’t finish the lap as I wanted to. In any case we continue to be confident and I think that in the next races we will go better and better”.
