Jules Cluzel made the best lap in the official practice today with the time 1’37.641. He did a really good job today and he was really fast throughout both sessions.
Christophe Guyot: “We are aware this extremely good performance is not the victory yet. All team is really happy and satisfied because we manage to find little small things that were missed in Australia and helped Jules Cluzel to reach this result today.
The target for Thailand is to reduce the gap time with Krummenacher and Caricasulo that was present in Australia and today we proved we can make it. Corentin Perolari started really good this morning but he feels a bit disappointed because he faced a big problem with strong chattering this afternoon. We could not find the solution for this problem and he could not push like he wanted in those strange conditions. We have some good ideas already to put this problem away tomorrow.”
Jules Cluzel: “Of course I am happy with the session, I feel better on the bike I can say. We needed to change so many little things in order to be competitive with Krummenacher and Caricasulo. I can finally feel we are on the same page and this is a really good step for the team and for me. I am really looking forward to fight hard on Sunday.”
Corentin Perolari: “I am quite happy with this first day, I am still learning the track and I feel more and more confident. Target for today was to concentrate and ride alone on the track. Shame I had big problems with chattering (vibrations) and we could not find the solution today. 8th lap was my best one but I am sure tomorrow I can improve it!”
