Antena 3 Yamaha: Looking for the perfect set up at the new Sachsenring

Antena 3 Yamaha: Looking for the perfect set up at the new Sachsenring

Norick Abe and José Luis Cardoso have spent the first qualifying session of the German Grand Prix trying to find the perfect set up for the new layout of the Sachsenring. Norick Abe is still struggling with this front fork while Jose Luis Cardoso will try to confirm his progression trying to qualify again on the third row.

8 NORICK ABE (1:27.319)

´This afternoon we´ve changed the settings of the front fork but the changes haven´t brought the results we expected. Tomorrow we must keep working on this issue to try to improve our times. I like more this track after the changes, at least now you’re able to open the throttle in some parts of the track´.

14 JOSE LUIS CARDOSO (1:28.173)

´I´m very happy after this qualifying session because we made a good progression. I´ve been very consistent and the bike improved a lot. The gap with the pole is very big but I was consistent in many laps, and that´s more important than just setting a fast qualifying lap. I want to keep this pace but at the same time I´ll try to reduce the gap a little bit´.
