Blog | Beatriz Neila – A difficult weekend in Estoril but I learned a lot

Hi Everyone,

We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon in Estoril and the weather was very bad for wind and very cold. We left everything ready for the first free practice on Thursday!!

Thursday morning was in the worst weather. The first training sessions were a bit of contact with the bike and the circuit. I left satisfied with my work and the work of my team.

On Friday there are only two official training sessions that I could not take advantage of due to wind and bad track conditions, but I continued working to prepare the qualifying sessions on Saturday.

Saturday was the official qualifier and came out worse than I expected and in the first training I the bike stop in a difficult corner and I lost all the time of qualifying and in the second the temperatures started to get worse and although the weather was bad but I classified with a more or less good time.

On Sunday was two races, the day began very well, lowering the time in the warm up and finish with very good feelings with the bike. In the first race I was very well in a group and make better times, but a red flag stopped the race leaving it to five laps. The restart of the first race was not good but I'm happy with what I learned. In the second race to be worse climate and more wind I stayed in a group learning and finishing in the points !! Overall though it was difficult, but I am very happy because I have learned a lot this weekend.

I want to thank the team for their work, the sponsors, the people who support me and my family.

Now is time to work!!! FULLL GASSS

See you in Brno!!
