"I think this was positive start of the weekend, but we still have lot of work to be done. We spent almost half an hour speaking about best tyre option, we also need to improve front feeling and rear grip. My best lap time is not bad, but I reached it only once. We´re not so far from Ayoama, but he is able to do his best lap time constantly. However if we find good setup, we can follow the same target as in Misano.“

The track was very dirty, so it´s difficult to improve the lap time compared to the last year. However we cut more than half of second from the last year´s time made by Luca Scassa who had replaced Karel at the end of season 2013. The bike worked well especially in the morning session. Afternoon we suffered some problems. We tried different tyre combination, but we still don´t know which we will use tomorrow in qualifying practice. The lap time isn´t bad, we stay close to the best open bikes and we left Redding and Nicky Hayden behind us. Tomorrow we need to pass 1:50 to stay between the fastest open class riders.“
