Good first day of the FlexBox HP 40 in Argentina
 
Fernández and Baldassarri finish the first day fourth and seventh, respectively.
 

The Grand Prix of Argentina has been started today on Friday with the dispute of the double day of free practice.

The FlexBox HP 40, which arrives in Argentina with Baldassarri leading the championship, faces with great enthusiasm and high expectations to make a good weekend at the circuit of Termas de Rio Hondo, an unknown track for Augusto Fernández.

The first day has been very positive for both riders. In the morning they have already placed inside the top 10, but it was in the afternoon when the pupils of Sito Pons have confirmed the good work done.

Fernandez, that we commented that it is his first visit to Argentina, has worked very well with his technical team and has placed in the fourth position in the combined times, stopping the clock in 1:43.518, just over a tenth of the fastest time. Great start of the Spanish rider in Argentina.

Also positive Baldassarri evening, taking those steps forward that allow him to face with confidence and be quick during the grand prix. One tenth of his teammate has stopped the clock in 1:43.633, time that serves to dismiss the day in seventh position, ready for the fight of tomorrow's pole position.

The riders of the FlexBox HP 40 will return to the track tomorrow at 9:55 local time -13:55 Spanish peninsular hour- to play the last free, and the official at 13:55 -17:55 Spanish peninsular time-.

Lorenzo Baldassarri, 7th, 1:43.633 (+0.280)
"The first day in Argentina is always complicated, as we found a pretty dirty track with no grip. It is a funny truck with fast corners and when more laps are done the grip is improving. We have worked well and preparing for tomorrow. We are taking the right steps forward and we need to give a small one as it will be tomorrow, but we are ready."

Augusto Fernández, 4th, 1: 43.518 (+0.165)
"I'm happy with this first day in Argentina. It is a new circuit that I did not know and the truth is that we have adapted quite quickly. In the morning it has cost me more, which is normal, but in the afternoon both the bike and I have improved and we are on the right way. We finished the day in fourth position, happy, and tomorrow we must continue working like this".
