Saturday was success; we will start to the race from 14th place

The Czech rider, Karel Abraham, in Saturday's qualifying of British Grand Prix at Silverstone, managed to achieved a promising result. First, during third free practice he improved by more than one second his best time of yesterday. Then, in the afternoon, he was able to overcome all pitfalls of the longest circuit of the season with honor. On the track that was being sprinkled by drops of rain, in last fastest lap he rode the time 2:03,206 and this result brought him on fourteenth position. Behind our rider is also rider on factory bike, Cal Crutchlow.

"The result is good, I'm satisfied. In the morning we speed up a lot and we prepared well the bike for the afternoon session. Qualifying we managed really good and i managed to do very fast last lap. That's true, that rear part of the bike was not properly on the track and in two parts of the track it was not ideal. For sure i could be little bit faster, but at the end it doesn't matter. Fourteenth place is good. We beat even Cal Crutchlow and I'm happy about it. On the track I rode much well than yesterday, everyone rode faster today. It is also because the surface is rubberized, actually we swept the track. The question is, which type of tyres we will choose for tomorrow."

"We are maximum satisfied. Karel made good job. We are very fast, we rode some great times and we are also close to riders on much more betters bikes than we have. For example we lose to Bautista just half of the second. We left behind us even Crutchlow on factory bike. We managed to set and remove all problems with instability of the front tyre and tomorrow during the warm up we will try to set the bike that Karel feels really comfortable. We will see what the weather will be tomorrow and which tyres we will choose."
