Fastest Ducati on the Misano circuit belongs to Barberá

Fastest Ducati on the Misano circuit belongs to Barberá

Seventh in the morning and eighth in the afternoon, MAPFRE Aspar rider Héctor Barberá started his San Marino GP weekend stronger than ever.

The Spaniard is just one second off the fastest time, and also was the fastest Ducati rider on track today. Barberá indicated earlier in the week that this was a good circuit for him and he is keen to make the most of the opportunity to finish with a good result. Having improved his pace and consistency throughout today, he is looking forward to continuing the job tomorrow.

Héctor Barberá:
"We are doing a good job and it is showing. Practice has been going well for us at the last few rounds and we have just been missing that extra step in the races. Our pace has been consistent though and I think sooner or later we are going to spring a surprise. It could be here because this is a good circuit for me. The fastest Ducati on the first day is a good start for us. We were fighting to be the first Ducati to the finish line at the last race so that is what we will try for again this Sunday. My team is helping me a lot and gradually we are improving in certain areas. I always ride my hardest but there are things we can do better and we are finding them so that is the most important thing. We have a base set-up that we try to get the best out of at each track and the best way forward has proven to be making small changes to a setting we know works."
