 In News

The Friday of the Austrian Grand Prix closes with a great result for both the Sterilgarda Max Team riders.

Free practice 1 was held with a wet track and this affected the results. The two riders did not take unnecessary risks and at the end of the forty minutes of the session they got familiar with the new layout, characterized by the chicane before turn 2.
Ayumu finished 14th.

The second session took place with a dry track and with a temperature that reached 27 o C on the asphalt. The times lowered, and both riders reached the top six.

In sixth position, was Ayumu, with a time of 1’42.085 and a gap of 0.311 s. having completed sixteen laps.

“It was a very good first day. FP1 was in wet condition. I just took it easy after the injury, but I felt good on the bike. On the dry condition I felt immediately very good. The new chicane is very interesting, it makes it a little bit more difficult. We got P6 overall and our pace is very good. I don’t know which weather is going to be tomorrow, but I think in any conditions we are capable of fighting in the front, so hopefully we can have a good qualifying so that it will make the Long lap Penalty a little bit easier.”
