Salom confident of own strength at Sepang – “All the pieces of the puzzle are there”
Luis Salom knows he is fast at the Sepang track. He just hasn’t found the perfect lap yet on the first day of the Malaysian Grand Prix. With 2.15.704, which put him in eight in the second free practice, he was reasonably satisfied, but he knows he can be faster.
“I have been looking for the best lines”, the Spanish rider of RW Racing GP says. “The data showed this very well in the first free practice: every lap I had different section times. It went a lot better in the second practice, but there still is much to gain. Specially in the last section – the final two corners and the straight before the finish line.”
In his search for perfection Salom tried too hard in the end of the first practice. In the last corner in the final lap he wanted just a little bit too much, with a crash as a result. Luckily the crash was without consequences.
In the second free practice the circumstances were much better and Salom was more at ease. “At Sepang it is a matter of doing as much laps as possible. I have the pace, the bike feels great, I feel fine. All the pieces of the puzzle are there. I am confident we can put them together.”
