Baldassarri leads the first day in Qatar
 
Lorenzo Baldassarri and Augusto Fernández finish first and eleventh, respectively, the first day of free practice.
 

One more season the Qatari track of Losail (Qatar) is the one chosen to give the starting signal to a new course, always being a first great special grand prix for the riders and teams.

The morning session started well for the FlexBox HP 40 riders, Lorenzo Baldassari and Augusto Fernández. The Spanish one, who will play his first grand prix in Qatar, has quickly been among the best and finished the session in sixth position. Four positions more delayed has ended his teammate, Baldassarri, closing the top 10. A good first free practice for the pupils of Sito Pons.

Already in the afternoon, Baldassarri has left wanting to continue progressing, so much that it has taken him to the first position, with a best time of 1:58.635 that serves to the rider of the FlexBox HP 40 to dismiss the day leading the classification. On the other side of the box, Fernandez has continued working and adjusting the set-up of his Kalex and has stopped the clock in a time of 1: 59.143, placing himself in the eleventh position.

The rider of the HP 40 FlexBox will return to the track tomorrow with another double training session. At 12:45 - spanish peninsular time - the last free practice and, at 5:05 p.m., the official timed that will determine the order of the starting grid.

Lorenzo Baldassari, 1st, 1:58.635
"First positive day in Qatar, which reflects the good work we did in the test. We have a good base on the bike and the feeling is good. In the morning the track was a bit dirty, but in the afternoon it was better and we we could mark a good time. Tomorrow we will continue working on this line".

Augusto Fernández, 11th, 1:59.143 (0.508)
"The first day in Qatar went well. We have a good set-up and the pace is good, although we have not had a good lap. I'm not worried and I'm sure tomorrow we'll give it, but I'm happy with the sensations" .
