I must thank the team for the bike they gave me this weekend, really works well, and I'll tell them I apologize for this error. It hurts because we are ready and finally race pace is quite slow compared to our practice sessions, but we can not do anything, just trying to get back on top. Let's hope tomorrow we could have at least several hours in dry to test 1000cc. I am moving forward to seeing how the new machine after spending the Jerez test. "
