Okay first session for Faubel
The Marc VDS Racing Team’s Scott Redding declared himself happy with today’s opening free practice session at Catalunya, after finishing tenth fastest aboard his Suter MMX Moto2 machine. Hector Faubel finished just under one second behind his teammate in 25th place, but is confident of improvement tomorrow.
After two difficult races at Silverstone and Assen, Faubel used this afternoon’s free practice session to reacquaint himself with a bike set up like at Mugello, where he finished in 12th place. The 26-year-old Spaniard continued to do long runs on the bike throughout the session, making no changes to the set-up at all. The only problem encountered during free practice was with the gearing at some of the second and third gear corners, which will be changed ahead of tomorrow’s second free practice session.
Hector Faubel #55: 25th – 1’49.922
“Today was okay. I put in a lot of laps without making any changes and the bike felt pretty good. I had no big problems at all and the only change we’ll make tonight will be to the gearing, as at some corners second gear is a little too short and third gear is slightly too long. Overall I feel more comfortable on the bike, which feels much more like the bike I rode to 12th place at Mugello and less like the bike that I had problems with at Silverstone and Assen.”
