Laverty: “Tonight I didn't have the same confidence”

Laverty: “Tonight I didn't have the same confidence”

The Aspar MotoGP Team rider Eugene Laverty just couldn’t quit get the feeling right on his Honda during FP1 in Qatar.

The Northern Irishman ended the day down in 23rd place on the timesheets, just under two seconds slower than the leading pace of Marquez.

Eugene Laverty:
“We found a really good feeling for the bike here at the recent test and we had a good set-up but from the start of the session tonight I didn't have the same confidence in the front end. We don't know why this is but we didn't have much time to work on it so tomorrow we will change the front tyre and keep working hard to get the feeling back. Tomorrow we will use the information from the test to work with the electronics and the traction control and I am sure I'll feel more comfortable on the bike.”
