Lowes looking for more feeling after day one at Le Mans

Friday 6 May 2016

The first day of practice of the French Grand Prix, fifth round of the 2016 Moto2 World Championship, saw Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 rider Sam Lowes working a lot on the set up of his Kalex machine, closing the day with the 13th fastest time in the combined standings, 1’38”524.

The 25-year-old Championship leader will continue to work tomorrow together with the team and with Kalex and Ohlins technicians, especially to get a better front end feeling, convinced he can improve and return in the top positions ahead of the Qualifying session that will decide the starting grid for Sunday’s race.

Sam Said:

“Today we tried many things, but we couldn’t get a good feeling. Anyway, the situation is not as bad as it looks. We tried very different set up solutions between FP1 and FP2, but we took a wrong direction, so tomorrow we will go back to this morning’s bike and we will keep working in order to improve. I think we can do it, we just need to work to find a bit more feeling on the front”.
