Hector Barbera feels he has a good race package underneath him if first practice is any indication for the rest of the weekend. The Spaniard was ninth fastest on Thursday evening and was the second of the Ducatis behind Nicky Hayden.

Barbera was pleased with his race pace but accepts that he has work to do to get the GP12 where he wants it over a single lap.

“I'm happy with how we are working on during the free practice of today. I had a good feeling with my Ducati and we had a good race pace. We had a few small issues with the front tyre that took quite a lot of time out of our session today. We made several runs to test both the hard and the soft tyres, but the general situation didn't improve. However we are confident on the work done and we should be able to change the situation.”

Pramac Racing team manager Francesco Guidotti agreed with his rider and feels they have a good base to work from.

“Overall we had a good turn of free practice. The bright spot is that we have a good feeling between the Team and our rider. The fastest Ducati rider is Nicky Hayden and we have to work on his race pace to improve our lap time and achieve a good spot on the grid.”
