"This morning I was feeling OK, the bike was working good. We went out on soft tyres and the bike was behaving really well. We did three or four laps that were OK and I wasn’t far from the top, but it wasn’t the same in the afternoon and I don’t know why. We usually have a very stable bike, but it wasn’t working well. Every time I went on the track, on a new tyre or a used one, I was sliding a lot and couldn’t do anything about it, it was something very strange, it’s difficult to say anything about it. Concerning the new layout, you have to take the right line. The left-right is something all the tracks have, slow corners. For sure the 2016 version was a much nicer layout, but for the circuit it needs to be like this so it’s better for everyone."
