Today's weather was quite hot, with track temperatures exceeding 40 degrees, making conditions challenging compared to yesterday. Taiyo Furusato had a crash in the morning, which affected his qualifying performance. Despite this setback, he managed to secure the 8th position on the grid for tomorrow's race. He has a good pace, but there is room for improvement to achieve a strong result.
Meanwhile Tatchakorn Buasri will start tomorrow's race from 24th position. Both Furusato and Buasri need to work closely with their teams to identify and address today's weaknesses for a better performance tomorrow at Sachsenring. We are determined to do our best and hope to gain many positions and earn valuable points.

For the second day in a row, I can't be completely happy with today's result. I expected much more, especially since I felt stronger yesterday. I had the right path, but I didn't deliver the expected result in today's qualifying.
However, the result isn't a disaster. We start from the third row on the grid in P8, which is close to the top riders. Let's hope that tomorrow we can have a good race. I will give my best to perform well and fight to be in the podium zone, just like in the last two races.

Today, we have mixed feelings about our performance. It's not bad, but it's also not as good as we hoped it will be. In the morning, we made improvements, but we still didn't achieve a strong position. During the midday qualifying session, the weather became hotter, making it difficult to perform well despite pushing to the max.
Unfortunately, the grid result was not what we desired. We made small steps in the right direction, but we need to keep progressing. Let's hope that in tomorrow's race, we can reduce the gap with the riders in front and achieve a good result here at Sachsenring.
