    Craig through the rerun of El Priorat and no dramas. P-G was 15 sec faster but all still under control

    Craig was initially worried that he had lost a lot of time as he was on the soft compound tyre but P-G couldn't capitalise on this.

  • Friday Morning

    Before Craig set off this morning he said, "The wait is finally over and now it's time to go to work. Twelve months ago going into the final round of the Academy I had a big deficit to make up, leaving me with only one option and that was to attack from the start. It's different this year, as I'm leading the category and my job today will be to mark P-G's (Andersson) progress. It won't be easy as I'm sure he will go for it, but this is what I've worked from the start of the season and my confidence is high."
