"It is currently difficult to understand where I stand with my pace compared to the others because I have a completely different strategy in fourth free training. Nevertheless, I think that we will be competitive and with another step tomorrow can mix in the front. "

missing rear-wheel grip The main problem

when it comes to the question of what he still lacks, he explains: "At the moment I am missing Hinterradgrip. That's why I lose a lot of time towards the other Ducati drivers in a few sections of the route. We concentrate on that. The good thing is, good, that I only lose two points and we can work on it. "

The fact that it is not running as hoped has already surprised him, Bagnaia continues. "It was similar in the previous year. In Austria I felt good with my motorcycle and when we arrived here, I had to fight," he looks back.

"This time we started better into the weekend than in 2021, I don't feel that bad. But something is still missing. In asses everything was a little easier. To get there, we have to work harder here. But it goes into the right one Direction. The lap time we drove today is proof of this. "

The new wing elements at the rear of the Ducati, with which team -mate Miller also drove on Saturday, did not yet test Bagnaia. "I will do that in Austria."
