Valencia GP – 125cc – Quotes after QP1

 In News

11th Gábor Talmacsi: 2.01.327 (12 laps)
“Honestly, I didn’t have much feeling with the Aprilia in the wet today. I didn’t feel the limit of the bike at any time so didn’t want to risk it. Obviously, if it was the race or final qualifying then I’d have pushed more but our objective today was to get some laps in and get a feeling for the track. We even went out with the second bike, just to make sure the number one machine is okay for tomorrow and Sunday. I feel calm because the weather will improve tomorrow and we’ll run at the front. I love this track and I can adapt quickly to it.”

15th Adrián Martín: 2.02.212 (13 laps)
“It was a useful session and I felt comfortable. I’m happy with the result even though I had a few scary moments, but that’s normal in the wet. This circuit doesn’t have much grip when it rains and you have to build up your confidence. I tried to do that with every lap, improving my lap times as I went on. Hopefully I can continue to do that in every session, whatever the conditions.”

19th Sergio Gadea: 2.02.869 (12 laps)
“We put some new forks on today and they worked quite well – the problem is we don’t have the bike set up yet and on top of that it rained. We spent the whole day working on the front-end set-up and I couldn’t push at any point, because when I did the bike moved around so much. I would have been silly to risk a crash. In theory the weather should be much better tomorrow and even though it will be difficult I’ll be doing all I can to set pole. I know I can be fast here and I’m not at all worried about the result today.”
