Rosell satisfied with progress so far but eager “to keep fighting and to keep learning”
Team QMMF rider Elena Rosell completed a successful first day of practice at Estoril. The only female rider in the motorcycle Grand Prix racing started cautiously on a partially damp track in the morning, but gained confidence and speed as the day went on and ended up in 31st position.
Elena Rosell – 31st in 1.46,126
“We went out on a partly damp track this morning and it cost me a while to find my confidence, because I crashed in the race of Jerez one week ago in similar conditions. From this point on, we kept improving and I kept learning the track. We also got better lap times, which I managed to repeat quite consistently.
My hope for tomorrow is for better weather that will finally dry up the damp patches around the track. It also became obvious once again what a tough and hard-fought category Moto2 really is – the fastest guys rode quicker than the CRT bikes in the MotoGP category, which is mind-boggling. All we can do is to keep fighting and to keep learning. But considering it was only my second time on this track today, things didn’t go too bad at all!”
