Positive test for the FlexBox HP 40 in Jerez
 
Baldassarri and Fernández conclude satisfied the first official test of the season.
 

The first ride with the new colors of the FlexBox HP 40 at the Circuito de Jerez has been very positive. From Wednesday 20 to Friday 22, the riders of the Moto2 category have been cited at the Jerez Circuit in the first official IRTA test of the season.

The riders of Sito Pons, Lorenzo Baldassarri and Augusto Fernández, value very positively this contact with their new Kalex and ending the test among the reference riders of the category.

Baldassarri, who is facing his second season in the FlexBox HP 40, has been one of the fastest riders during the three test days. With his technical team, they have been doing tireless work and it shows that the fastest time has marked in the last session today. Stopping the stopwatch at 1:41.149, the FlexBox HP 40 rider has placed fifth in the combined three-day timings, just one tenth of the fastest time. A good start to the season for Baldassarri.

On the other side of the box, very good work also for Augusto Fernández. The Spanish rider of the FlexBox HP 40 faces his first full season in Moto2 and repeats with the team. Still recovering from a shoulder injury, Fernández has focused his work always thinking about races, working with the hardest compound and far from going to look for a fast lap. Even so, the time of 1:41.472 serves to place him near the top 10, thirteenth, a little less than half a second of the best chronometer. Very good job of the pupil of Sito Pons, who is already eager to get to Qatar.

Riders and team set sail for Qatar to start the last test day, on days 1, 2 and 3 of March, before the first grand prix of the season, also in Qatar.

Lorenzo Baldassarri, 5th, 1:41.149 (+0.167)
"We finished these three days of testing doing a very good job with the team. we are working on the new 2019 motorcycle, with the new chassis and engine, and the truth is that we left Jerez very motivated, marking a good time. Now we are going to Qatar to ride three more days before the grand prix and we will continue this line of work".

Augusto Fernández, 13º, 1: 41.472 (+0.490)
"I am happy with these three days of testing. From the first moment we focused on working thinking about the race, working with the hard tire until the last day, and I am also happy with the evolution of the shoulder, which after training in Valencia I could not work much and here I have already noticed close to 100%. In these three days we have lacked marking a fast lap, but I am happy with all the work done, which is to know the bike and keep evolving. I am already thinking about reaching the Qatar test."
