13th Héctor Faubel: 2.06.442 (5 laps)
“It was a pretty strange day for everybody because the track was practically flooded. With so much rain it is difficult to enjoy a circuit so I’d love the chance to get a feel for it in the dry tomorrow, although the forecast is for more rain. It is a nice circuit with a good mix of corners but the asphalt is quite bad. Like a lot of the riders we decided to come in halfway through the session this afternoon. I thought about going back out five minutes from the end but we decided it was wiser to stay in and wait for tomorrow. My Aprilia is working well so if we can get it better tomorrow it will just be a case of improving my riding around this new track.”

“The circuit has quite good grip, the biggest problem is all the puddles that are forming on the new asphalt. The other sections absorb the water quite well but the new asphalt is really slippery. In general we have to keep working to gain confidence with the bike, especially in the first section, where I don’t feel confident. To start out at a new circuit in the wet makes it really hard to try things but I hope we can improve tomorrow. In theory we don’t have anything to try but to get plenty of laps in and get better references around the track.”
