Adam Raga – TR1
“We have returned to be penalized with the order of exit, having to open race alone, without references. This system of classification is unfair and subtracts spectacle. I have made two mistakes in zone three that have made me face the rest of the race very loaded with points, so I consider positive this second position and the good performance that we have returned to show in race.
Marc Riba – TR1
“It was a difficult and hard trial by the intense heat. The areas were broken a lot with the passage of the pilots. In general there are areas that have gone quite well, in others that could have done better have not come out, but we are working on the good line to be closer to the drivers ahead. From zone 7 I ran with pain in the wrist by a strong fall. “
