It was a disappointing race on Sunday in Barcelona and we were back on track yesterday trying to fix the chatter issue we have. After the practice sessions on Friday and Saturday, we really felt we would be competitive in the race but I guess we made a few wrong decisions with set up and the hard tyres weren’t any more of an advantage than the soft. Dani did a great job to take second place and fight with Jorge for so many laps, but I had very little confidence with the bike.
Our main goal for the test was to reduce this chatter issue we have that has plagued us all season. The day was positive, we made a step forward and reduced the chatter slightly. Now we’ll have to wait to the next race to continue work on it and see where we are. We leave Barcelona today and have a few days at home before leaving for the UK and Silverstone – a fantastic track which I always look forward to visiting.
It’s been great having Adriana and Ally here with me again, it really does make such a difference to come back from being on track and to be able to spend time with them both.
See you next time!
