„We had lot of problems during the day. The front was instable in corners, rear was slipping in fast corner exits and we had suffered problems with electronics too. The bike was wheeling and seems “nervous”. However most of it we were able to fix it, so the result is quite good. I thought the leg will be better, unfortunately it is not. Normally i can walk, but it is not still good when riding. And it got worst during the day. I hope it won't be a big limit for rest of the weekend. “

„Our situation is not so bad regarding the fact that Karel still feels the pain in his foot. We must find the setup in fewer laps than other rider to not overload the foot excessively. We succeed today. Karel was quite happy of the set up. Afternoon we were one second faster than in the morning, but still two seconds slower than last year. But this may be caused by the track, which seems to be in worse condition compared to the previous year. Tomorrow we will focus on improving to setup to find more confidence on rear and also on the bumps. “
