Barberá sits twelfth after day one

Barberá sits twelfth after day one

MAPFRE Aspar rider Héctor Barberá was 12th fastest in Gran Premio de Aragón opening session, 1.7 seconds off the top spot but with extended time available to improve tomorrow.

Barberá suffered the setback of an electrical fault on his bike in the morning session, and having been limited to just thirteen laps he was looking forward to making progress in the afternoon session. However the untimely cancellation of FP2 left him twelfth on the time sheets, 1.7 seconds off the top, but with every confidence of a major step forward tomorrow.

Héctor Barberá:
"It was a strange day because with the cancellation of the second session you feel like you've been cut short. Even though I didn't do many laps this morning it was a productive session and the few laps I did were good ones. I was only four tenths off seventh place and I am not worried by our position today because with more track time I am sure we would have improved. I am enjoying myself a lot on the bike here - it suits my riding style and the Ducati, so I just want to keep working hard tomorrow and that's it. We had planned some set-up changes for this afternoon so we'll try those tomorrow and I am sure they'll be good."
