Xavi Vierge endured a challenging day at Mugello on qualifying day for tomorrow’s Italian GP, whereby he suffered a fall at the 12th turn in the early stages of the afternoon session.
The young Spaniard was then taken to the medical centre but escaped without any major injuries. His personal best, which he set on his second lap, put him in 22nd on the grid and tomorrow he will seek to bounce back from the tricky affair today.
“It was a big shame to crash in the qualifying, but the most important thing is that I’m ok to race tomorrow. We had a positive time in FP3 where I finished 6th, and so things were looking good for this afternoon. The team and I found some solutions to the issues that we experienced yesterday and I thought that I could at least try to get into the top ten. Anyway, the crash happened early on in the session and I had to go to the medical centre to get checked. Fortunately, I have no injuries so I will get back on the bike tomorrow and do my absolute best to try and get something back in the GP.”
