It was a good qualifying session in Catalunya today for both the WTR-Ten10 Racing riders, who have got the hang of their bikes. At the end of the day, Francesco and Sturla qualified in the 27th and 29th positions respectively. It was only during the last lap Francesco improved his time and this is the evidence of the deeper experience he has been gaining.

Today’s qualifying session went quite well. This morning in the round of free practice we tried some different springs, which in the end we were not satisfied and we went back to the original setting that was clearly better.
I strung together several good laps and I finally made the so-called “circle of death” that has given me the opportunity to advance further in the starting grid for tomorrow. So today, I am confident for the race.

After many months of inactivity I am taking a ride on the bike as before, and I am very well. I really like this Team. It’s a very professional Team and my engineer is fantastic. The feeling is great. For tomorrow I guess I’ll be at my best and I can express myself better.
