 In News

Friday’s free practices at the San Marino GP at Misano ended with Ayumu Sasaki in second place.

The day was characterized by a nice sun, some clouds, and the temperature in the morning increased progressively, until it reached 41o C during free practice 2.

Ayumu in free practice 1 finished second and in FP2 confirmed this position. In the second session he lowered his time by just over half a second, getting the time of 1’41.990. Twenty-six laps completed by Ayumu in the two sessions and gap from the leader of the combined standings D. Foggia of 0.382 s.

This position is very important, especially considering that tomorrow could rain and with this result Ayumu would have secured access to Q2

“We had a good start today, I felt good on the bike. We need small adjustments on the bike, but we already know where are those problems, and if we fix those I think we will get closer to the first position. I think overall today went well, and I felt good so that is the main thing. We know that Foggia is one of the fastest, but we are very close to him and I think he had a great start.We have a great pace, so we just need to focus and see what the weather is going to be like tomorrow. They say it is going to rain, but I feel good on the rain as well.”
