SBK, Bulega: "Bagnaia? I with the Panigale did 1'35"8" in Misano."

"Too bad about this morning when I didn't feel particularly comfortable with front-end problems, but otherwise it was a good day. Bastianini's presence in the box? I'll need some support. Pressure on me? As long as you are fighting for the victory none."

SBK: Bulega:

Author so far of a solid season and probably well above his expectations Nicolò Bulega, arrived in Misano charged and in fact, despite some worries in free practice 1, he ended the afternoon with a time of 1'33"511 valid for first position, but not enough to beat Toprak Razgatlioglu's 1"33"448 of the morning.

"In the first session I didn't have a good feeling in the saddle, especially when braking I felt movement on the front, so we got to work and I think we found a solution because in the afternoon I felt more comfortable. In particular I noticed a step forward on the front end, and that allowed me to ride better and get closer to the BMW. However, I know that the others will not stand still, so we should roll up our sleeves. That said, overall I am satisfied, although not yet 100 percent. In Barcelona I felt like I was in better shape," his review.

Asked if being so competitive in his series debut is putting him under pressure, the Italian reiterated what is now a mantra for him. "You feel it if the results are bad, not when you're fighting for victory, so right now I don't feel any."

Also cheering him on in the Ducati box was MotoGP rider Enea Bastianini. "I need support because the opponents are on the ball. Some support will come in handy."

On the Romagna track, the Emilian had lapped like Bagnaia on a standard Panigale V4. "He had lapped on the 1'35"1, I on the 1'35"8. I was slower, but Pecco is a champion and he can pull out 120 percent. I don't know what tires he had, I fitted Pirelli's. In general, the bike despite being a road bike allows you to push and get good times."
