Terhalang Hujan, Pembalap Suzuki Kesulitan Cari Settingan Yang Pas Pada Qualifikasi Hari Pertama di Aragon


Zona Motor ID, Hari pertama tiba di Sirkuit Aragon, Tim Suzuki Ecstar dihadapkan dengan cuaca yang tidak bersahabat. Qualifikasi hari pertama, pembalap Suzuki belum bisa memacu Suzuki GSX-RR secara maksimal. Dan Tim juga kurang maksimal dalam mempersiapkan setingan motor seperti yang diinginkan. Sejak pagi sirkuit sudah basah dengan air hujan, tetapi pada sore harinya air hujan mulai mengering, cuma ada dibeberapa tikungan saja aspalnya masih basah.


Andrea Iannone mempergunakan pengalamannya dalam balap untuk menghadapi kondisi sirkuit basah seperti ini. Dan sedikit demi sedikit masalah pada pengereman yang dialaminya teratasi oleh tim. Dan Andrea Iannone lebih percaya diri untuk qualifikasi berikutnya dan dia berharap cuaca lebih bersahabat.

Berbeda dengan Alex Rins, pembalap muda ini masih ragu - ragu untuk memacu Suzuki GSX-RR lebih kencang lagi dalam kondisi hujan. Tetapi dia konsisten memperbaiki catatan waktunya agar lebih baik sampai sore hari. Dan dalam sesi qualifikasi ini, sesuai janjinya Alex Rins menggunakan Helm. Sarung tangan, dan Sepatu berwarna pink untuk kampanyenya melawan kanker payudara. Sedangkan Helm, Sarung tangan dan Sepatunya akan dilelang tanggal 19 Oktober bertepatan dengan Hari Anti Kanker Payudara sedunia.

Davide Brivio – Team Manager 
“This has been a tough day as the weather conditions affected all of the work. We had some new solutions ready to be tried and we were curious to see, but we needed dry track for this and the pouring rain prevented our work. We turned the day into focusing on some development in wet conditions, but honestly we could not really explore very much as the conditions of the track were constantly changing. Andrea made improvements. He is still struggling with the setup and we can improve his braking. Alex had good feeling toward the end of the session, but he didn’t feel confident enough to push harder to get a better time. Hopefully tomorrow the weather will be more consistent and allow for some more productive work.” 

Andrea Iannone 
“This was a day when it was very hard to figure anything out, as the track was neither wet nor dry. The classification is very strange. It took nothing to gain half a second and be in the top, or to lose three seconds and be in last. In these conditions we couldn't really try anything, we just gave a shot to some setups, but right after three laps the tyres were already worn and so I couldn't push. Let’s hope for better weather tomorrow so we are able to really start the weekend.” 

Alex Rins 
"This morning did not go well. There was no grip. The afternoon however, went much better, with good feeling and riding with rhythm on a regular basis. At the end of the session the track was very dry in some areas while in four of the corners it was totally wet. I think we have got a lot of information from this session to improve tomorrow. It has been a good day even though the result does not reflect it.”
