Moncayo reflects on a difficult first day at Le Mans

 In Moto2, News

alberto-moncayoProgression was a word that could be heard today in the box of the Argiñano & Ginés Racing team after the first day of practice in Le Mans.

Alberto Moncayo as well as his teammate Steven Odendaal are happy with the way things have developed on this first day and their overall feedback is positive.

The second session was interrupted by rain and it looks like tomorrow might also turn a wet affair, a situation which both riders of the team handle naturally and with professionalism.

Alberto was able to improve by some valuable tenths in the afternoon, he improved from position 32 to 31 and he expects that he can further improve on his position tomorrow if the weather conditions don’t get much worse.

Alberto Moncayo #17 – 31st place – 1.40.780
The morning was a bit difficult. We knew where we had to improve, I’ve been sitting with the mechanics and we’ve been studying the data. In the afternoon I could drop the laptime by almost 2 seconds and started to improve. It seems that it’ll rain tomorrow, but should it be dry we know what changes to make. The telemetric data gives us reason to be optimistic that we can be in the top 20. If it rains we just have to go out and put some laps in to give us confidence in the bike in wet conditions. I knew how to handle the Moto3 bike in the wet but this is different.
