"Our goal was to improve times yesterday but unfortunately not the case. Obviously I'm not at all satisfied with the result as expected much more from today's session. I said yesterday that it was very important to a good training to get ahead. Here in Mugello is very important, but ultimately, we lacked rhythm and consistent lap. We must look with my technicians what has happened and for my part, look where I failed. In the race must attack in the early stages without losing contact with the group since the first half of the race we recover what we have done today. "

"First of all I want to thank the team during the night were working yesterday to today we have a competitive bike. In training I have done my qualifying second best result of the season which I'm really pleased. Looking morning we make a good start and hooked the group as soon as the race will be in groups. Anyway we do our race calmly but forcefully. We have fast enough to be there before so we can face tomorrow's race in a positive way for us. Race is much easier to make the time as you help to others but it is also true that can harm us that we exchange overtaking us. "
