First contact for the FlexBox HP 40 in Phillip Island
 
Fernández and Baldassarri finish thirteenth and fourteenth, respectively, the first day of free practice in Australia.
 

Australia and the impressive Phillip Island circuit have welcomed the MotoGP World Championship riders with it usual changing weather: in the morning, rain and cold; and, in the afternoon, sun and dry track.

Fernández and Baldassarri have encountered some typical difficulties of the first day, which they hope to solve tomorrow.

Under the water, Fernández has felt well, although some problems of setting do not reflect the position. And, in the afternoon, together with his technical team they have worked on the dry set-up, marking a better time of 1:33.887, which gives him the thirteenth place in the combined times of the first day.

Baldassarri has also had a difficult premiere. Like his teammate, he has felt more at ease in the wet than in the dry and he positively values having been able to ride in both conditions, since it has allowed him to work on the tuning of his Kalex in both situations. He ends the fourteen, with a time of 1:33.906 as the best record.

Tomorrow the FlexBox HP 40 riders will be back on track at 9:55 local time -00:55 Spanish peninsular time- for the last free training and, timed, at 13:55 -4:55 Spanish peninsular time- .

Augusto Fernández, 13th, 1:33.887 (+0.877)
“Today was a complicated day, although it may seem worse than it really is. In water the feeling was good and I felt strong, but we were wrong in a box stop and when we have modified the bike it has not given us time to leave again; Dry the same a little, but regardless of whether it is dry or wet, I think we are not so far and we are clear about the path. Tomorrow it will be important to make a good qualifying to be competitive on Sunday in the race”.

Lorenzo Baldassarri, 14th, 1:33.906 (+0.896)
"First productive day as well as complicated. In the wet we are fine, with good feeling, and dry we have some more problems. We have seen that the KTM seems to have something else in this circuit but we are prepared to work in all conditions- It seems that tomorrow will be wet and Sunday dry, so being able to ride in both conditions today is the most positive".
