Ayumu happy and feeling good on his bike as Jerez weekend gets underway
The Friday of the Spanish Grand Prix ended with an excellent team result for the Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max Racing, with Ayumu Sasaki placing second.
The day did not start in the best way, in fact the rain of the night left evident wet spots on the track, making it very slow. The free practice times were much lower, compared to the corresponding times achieved in the Grand Prix last year. Ayumu at the end of the session was second.
The afternoon session, thanks to a good weather, was definitely faster. The track in fact was in better conditions and thanks to this Ayumu has taken almost two seconds from the morning time. 1’46.473 is his best lap, made at the last of the thirteen laps, 0.132 seconds is the delay of Ayumu, from the leader of the combined ranking I. Guevara.
At the end of this first day of testing Ayumu confirms his speed, shown since the first Grand Prix of the year.
AYUMU SASAKI :
“I am very happy about today. The weather was good, we managed to ride on dry conditions, and I felt good with the bike immediately in FP1. In FP2 we improved from FP1, which is a positive thing,. Also the race pace seems very good. We still have some minor things that we can improve, so tomorrow we can do even better. Overall I felt good on the bike, I am very confident about this week and today was surely a great start.”
