John happy with solid day one at Sachsenring
Since the morning both John McPhee and teammate Ayumu Sasaki have been fast around the Sachsenring. In fact, John in free practice 1 got the second fastest lap time. Thanks to a cloudless sky, the sun warmed the ground of the German circuit and, at the beginning of the FP2, the temperature on the ground reached 45ºC. This, in fact made the track slower and the times of the fastest riders did not improve much.
After the two free practice sessions John was fifth, with the time achieved in the morning session, equal to 1’26.691. The British rider is 0.328s behind the lead.
JOHN MCPHEE :
“It has been an interesting first day here in Sachsenring, I felt good on the bike almost immediately. We had to make some small changes to improve the overall feeling, but everything went correctly. I have done a long run with the tires, to try to understand how my race pace is. Honestly I am feeling quite good, we have done the laps alone, even the fastest lap, so I think it shows that we are in very good shape. We always know that there is more work to do for tomorrow, but day one has been a successful start.”
