Simeon Focused On Chassis Set-Up Testing A Day Of Experience For Baldassarri

The second night of the Qatar Grand Prix has seen Moto2 riders back on track for only one free practice session, the third and last before qualifying, scheduled for tomorrow from 6:55 to 7:40 PM local time.

Aboard the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 Suter machine, Xavier Simeon has carried out important work to limit tyre wear ahead of Sunday’s race, trying various chassis set-up solutions. The experienced Belgian rider, like many others, he could not improve his best lap time from yesterday, closing the combined classification of the three sessions in 11th position, but he remains confident ahead of qualifying, convinced to have a good potential.

Rookie Lorenzo Baldassarri, riding the Team Gresini Moto2 Suter, has paid today a little inexperience, trying uselessly to follow other riders on the track. The Italian therefore lost some precious time and failed to progress from yesterday, remaining stationary at 2’01”745 (21st).

XAVIER SIMEON (11th - 2'01"101)
“Today we had only one practice session available, but we still managed to try several chassis set-up solutions looking for a better balance. The feeling with the bike is good, but unfortunately these changes have not resulted in improvements, even though they have enabled us to understand some important aspects that were not clear, so we are confident that we can improve tomorrow. If we take a small step forward, tomorrow we can be protagonists also in qualifying”.

LORENZO BALDASSARRI (21st - 2'01"745)
“I’m not satisfied about the job I did today: at the beginning I tried a tyre which was not good for me, losing some time, then with a new tyre I tried to follow other riders on the track in order to learn better the track. A choice that has not paid off and that made me lose the right way. Tomorrow we will resume work from where we left off yesterday”.

“Today we tried several adjustments on Siméon’s bike, that have allowed us to better understand some important things, thanks to which tomorrow we can take another step forward. Tomorrow, in fact, we need to be strong in qualifying. Baldassarri has not been the protagonist of a positive session: after trying a couple of soft tyres that he didn’t liked, he lost some time and he got a bit distracted, but it is very young and a day like this is quite normal. We believe that tomorrow he can still do well”.
