“After that I was able to ride alone and I was able to ride in a normal way, and lap times become acceptable at 1m55.5s, 1m55.4s.

“So, it was very bad, especially the feeling at the beginning.
“When you have a problem of pressure it’s not a problem of the bike. So, we have to understand and manage it in a better way.”Read Also:
