- The Frenchman set a best time of 1:42.600 in the one-lap E-Pole showdown and he will line-up 12th on the grid for the seven-lap race tomorrow, which is the penultimate race in the inaugural FIM Enel MotoE World Cup.
“I hope to get a good start and have a strong battle”
“It has been quite difficult on this track to find a strong pace and it was like that when we tested here during the pre-season. We have tried many options to be more competitive and now we must put together what we have learned to race with the best package possible tomorrow. I hope to get a good start in the race tomorrow and make up some places and have a strong battle and find a good feeling that will give us confidence to end the season on a high note on Sunday.”
