Ayumu looking for a good result in Brno despite difficult qualifying
Ayumu Sasaki struggled to regain his good feeling from Free Practice one at Brno yesterday, but had a plan on how to improve in Qualifying one. After his first outing, he missed out on the right time frame to reenter the track and already saw the flag at the end of his out lap. Nevertheless, the Japanese stays focused and optimistic for a strong race tomorrow at 11:00 local time.
“Overall, we struggled a bit more than yesterday during this Saturday. At the end of FP3, I did some small mistakes and couldn’t bring together a lap that was fast enough for a direct Q2. In Q1, I knew that it’s going to be difficult, because everybody tries to do one good lap. In my first outing I had some issues with the bike, so we fixed that and finally, I wanted to go out for one fast lap, but I missed it by probably around three seconds. I couldn’t do this last flying lap with new tyres and we are in the back of the grid now. Anyway, we try to focus on a good result. I know, that we have a decent pace, so we just need to get to the front guys tomorrow.”
