His second run can be a different approach - he's got a clean one under his belt but this isn't good for Le Vot and he's not feeling it. Flying his Edge 540 V2 he's ragged out there... it's 7s in penalties with a pylon hit plus 4s in incorrect levels... not a great start and we think Rovinj will be a washout for the Frenchman...
Velarde up now and there's red on the clock for the Spaniard... this is a tough track for the newer pilots 59.282 inc 2s for incorrect Gate 6... he's disappointed and our usually smiley competitor will have to get it right on his second run
Very smooth chicane but late out of Gate 4... taking it safe here to avoid penalties but it's costing him time in the track... final chicane and that's a clean 56.098. Back to the Race Airport now and he'll have to hope there are mistakes out there from the faster guys
Sonka: The wind is a big factor, so the air is moving us away from the gates. We try to prepare for the different direction and hopefully we did a good job because we kew it would change. We have been quite fast in all the training sessions so we are almost on the top and we have to show this in the race
