The first day of practice was affected by sporadic rain. The riders didn't get out on track in the morning session and they started working with the wet set up in the afternoon to prepare the first European race that is expected, and most likely to be under rain conditions.

"It has been a strange day due to the weather conditions. In the morning we decided to not go out because the track was not wet enough then we had more or less the same conditions in the afternoon, but it was necessary to do some laps and get some rhythm. The first feeling on the bike was good for me, the bike felt good and I'm riding well but I hope we have better weather tomorrow, full dry or full wet. Anyway, it is important for us to do a good qualifying practice tomorrow and we will need to be clever and quick because the conditions can easily change and in one minute can be the option to make the lap time for the pole and one minute later can be a disaster. So let's keep focused and try to do a good job".
