|Mugello – Italy, June 09 – We have finally reached the home Grand Prix, the most beautiful and exciting one for many drivers, especially for the Italians.|
If we consider that since they were young, Romano and Matteo have trained on this asphalt, that this circuit emits a particular energy, and add that the cheering is already starting to be heard in this first day of qualifying, the result is a ticking time bomb.
This morning, the Snipers kick off the proceedings with a good time: Romano secures the eighth position with a time of 01’57.9620. Meanwhile, Matteo, a few positions behind, is working closely with the team to improve the bike and the front-end vibrations.
In the afternoon, however, there’s a note of disappointment for the team; with 3 minutes remaining in the session, Matteo is about to achieve an excellent time, with two red sectors, when the red flag is waved due to a rider’s crash. The time is cancelled, and he will have to settle for the 22nd position tomorrow. However, it is certain that he has all the potential to have a great qualifying session.
On the other hand, Romano, after some adjustments made by the team to the bike, improves by a few milliseconds, which will allow him to secure the sixth position.
Tomorrow, both Snipers will face a challenging Saturday ahead. The Mugello circuit can be both a blessing and a curse, and it’s up to them to fight to achieve their goal.
