First of all I want to say a big thank you to the whole team because I think we have had a very good season, which exceeded our expectations. I'm also glad it's over because it has been tough! We still have a test to take care of but after that I'm looking forward to taking a holiday, recharging the batteries and getting ready for next season to make even better results. Today's race was very difficult in the beginning, I had Baz and Van der Mark in front of me and I couldn't manage to pass them because I had some big problems with the front brake and many times I was struggling to make the corner. I set it up a bit differently, it wasn't ideal but it was working and I was able to get past them and start closing the gap to the rider in front of me. Unfortunately the gap was too big and I finished three seconds behind Petrucci. I'm really happy to pick up a couple of points and once again we are the first non-factory Ducati, which we can be proud of. As you saw with all the crashes the track conditions were different to all weekend and it was difficult to stay on board. I was riding alone so I had to work hard to stay concentrated and bring the bike home.,
