Závodní víkend na okruhu Laguna Seca

Race 1 “I was disappointed with Superpole. I tried to push really hard but I just wasn’t able to make any fast laps. It was still useful for us and we got some good data on how we run in qualifying, but it would have been good to qualify higher for the race. In Race 1 I tried to push hard again, but after a few laps I started to lose the front and I really wasn’t comfortable with it. The rear was sliding and spinning but I could manage it; the front made the race difficult for me and I had to slow down, which meant I couldn’t attack. The morning warm-up session will be important for us tomorrow, and we’ll use everything we learnt today. The weather should be good again, so for sure we’ll be pushing to get the bike in a good position and get better results in Race 2.” Race 2 “I was really pleased to finish in 12th and get some more points. It wasn’t a great start because there was some kind of problem with the start procedure and the lights, and I actually stalled the bike because they kept changing. After the red flag and restart I had a good fight with de Rosa and I was pushing him all the way. Towards the end of the race I was having some issues with the front, and it was sliding quite a lot so I couldn’t push as hard as I wanted. I managed to overtake him on the last lap but the front kept slipping, so I had to settle behind him at the finish. Overall it was a good race and we learnt a lot this weekend. Now we have a long break before we are racing again so we’ll use that time to prepare for the rest of the season, and I’m looking forward to riding again at Lausitzring in September.”
