A positive first testing day confirms the good work done during the Sepang test.
It was a productive day, both riders worked hard and felt satisfied, trying out different set-up and making some important changes, also thanks to the fact that they made more than 50 laps each.
Pecco Bagnaia ended his first day of testing in 9th position and his best chrono was 1’55.204, while Jack Miller, just a step away from the top 10, finished the first day in Qatar in 13th position with 1’55.430.
It was a pretty positive day, we worked mainly on my feeling, and we found a solution that I liked, I think we are following the right way.
This is a bit of a special track for the set-up but we are getting closer and closer to the solution.
Today we tried different set-up looking for the right one to face the race because the set up at this circuit is very different from Sepang.
In the afternoon the wind limited us a little bit, unfortunately I had a small crash on the out-lap but I had a good feeling with the bike and I feel satisfied, ready to go back to work tomorrow.
