“It didn’t go so well this afternoon after we made a couple of steps but went the wrong way. We put a new tyre in but couldn’t go any faster, so I’m quite disappointed really. This morning wasn’t too bad and the start of qualifying was average, but we know what the wrong moves were and changing them will only improve the bike for tomorrow,” said Haslam.
