"Today was a tough day. The track was completely wet at one moment. Then got drying up and it´s very difficult to do something with that. I was quite happy with the time, I thought it would suffice for better position, but it didn´t. We´ll see what the weather will be like tomorrow, it shouldn´t rain. I think, that the technical problem with rear suspension will be properly solved until next race in Italy, as there is usually warm or hot. So far it fairly works. Tomorrow we must make good decision about the tyres for the race. I used an extra soft front tyre in qualifying parctice, but I guess it isn´t good choice. After few fast laps the bike started to slide a lot.“
