“We are working very well. KTM has brought to Jerez several things to try. One of them we used today and has not gone as well as we expected. In the morning we have put themselves first, with a good pace, and in the afternoon we have improved. This is what counts, have a good pace and be among the fastest. Tomorrow rain forecast, but we will continue rolling because we still have things to prove. “

“Today the time has been with us over the day. Since the beginning of the day we started working very well with the team and have tried many things during the day. Every time I go to the track I feel more comfortable and I’m very happy because I think in the afternoon we made a step forward. We finished a second faster and that to me is very important.’ll see if time preserves the remaining training days and if we can further improve to reach Qatar with the best preparation possible. “
