MotoGP, Rins: "Changed set-up in an extreme way. I'm happy."

THE PHOTOS OF THE NEW FAIRING "Never had we made such major changes. Feel good sensations, but we are still far behind the others. What are we missing? The electronics. The new aerodynamic package? Little use here."

MotoGP: Rins:

Sixteenth in the morning and ninth in the afternoon Alex Rins ended Friday at Montmelo with fair satisfaction, partly due to the recent evolutions brought by Yamaha.

"Itwas a good day, of great work. It is always important to enter Q2 directly as it allows you to start in the middle of the group. This morning unfortunately we suffered a lot in terms of traction and mechanical grip to get out of the corners quickly. I knew I would find little grip, but usually in free practice 1 I feel comfortable, but here it was different. For the afternoon we decided to take a risk and made a drastic change, unlike usual when we go step by step, on the individual elements. I must say I am happy because the bike seems to me to turn and pull more effectively. Leaving the front lighter felt better. We did a lot of work on the Sprint Race and the feeling was good. The progress is evident. We willsee tomorrow if we can do something more although we certainly won't be able to fight for success," he said, however, admitting that while pushing he continues to lose out on the competition.

Speaking of the new aerodynamic package, he instead pointed out, "Certainly it helps to be able to count on the updated fairing, we can have more speed in corners, the bike holds the line better, but we suffered in terms of traction. The Mugello test? There we had improved by a couple of tenths. Not much, but on the lap it's something."

On the handicap still affecting the M1, he finally concluded, "We still lack in terms of electronics compared to others. In that area we are still behind."
