But we still have some positive aspects to take with us, the fourth position in qualifying was an excellent result with my fastest lap ever on the circuit. Now we have to analyze the data collected during these days, try to solve the problems and improve the feeling with the bike. ”
Morbidelli: “Solving the problems, otherwise a game in defense”
Rossi 12th: “The rear tire is too stressed”
Morbidelli on Sunday in Losail had even greater difficulties than Rossi: “Something was wrong with our package, we saw it both after the pre-season tests and after the race. In the evening, things get very complicated compared to other times of the day. We need to analyze the data well to clarify. I hope to solve the situation, otherwise it will be a difficult weekend, in which we will have to think about defending ourselves trying to limit the damage“.
