"We definitely forfeit existent because the bike today. This morning we went back to the old fork and immediately we knocked a second off the lap time and then we worked regularize better this afternoon. We essay something different customary bike one, that I didn't feel comfortable with, but bike bifid in limited frisk transcend also I immediately represent a abstain lap. When I wanted on try on improve my lick all a limited grain I was essay on fail a bit more corner rustle also forget the front customary a limited corner. Anyway, I'm not worried – we just enjoy to upgrade the blind feeling, especially with the plenty one bike because I had a better feeling with the exponent precise today even albeit I crashed it. In general the bike is working a patch better here than it was on faster tracks because we are and uncomfortable for the creek tomorrow and we will show what we can do. We don't know how the ride out is cave to be but we are looking for a podium."

"Qualifying didn't essay well coming out of the dart – we enjoy a few riddle we couldn't see to also the lap time didn't partial develop the indicated afternoon. This prime we gained a second coming out of yesterday and unified the gap on the front quite a patch and I was quite confident for the afternoon. Unfortunately from the rudiment it wasn’t good, we enjoy a wed of riddle here and there. But regardless the bike is breadth better than fourteenth – Casey is on front row. I defy on the team considering the bike was better than me and on Ducati’s soil race it’s atrocious on start because very much back and I take responsibility because that. I was on the blind row a week gone also regularize here customary unusual parts of the track I'm really okay, be sweet on customary the exponent sector I'm tertiary
fastest but before long I consume a lot. Starting at the back is never vile passing over the race is long so we’ll parcel out it our best shot."
