Abraham takes fourteenth at Phillip Island

I'm very happy. I think this is a very important result for the team because it brings back the good feeling. I never want anybody to crash but let's say we were unlucky that nothing happened in front of us! Anyway, it was a strong race for us, the lap times were good and I was able to run with the factory Ducatis. I had a good fight with Lorenzo and overtook him a couple of times. By the end of the race, the front tire was still good but the rear was spinning and sliding a lot and I was losing drive out of the left-handers. I was losing grip on entry too and had to play a little with the electronics. On the last lap, I prepared one last move on Jorge on the brakes into turn four and made the pass. I was sure he was going to get me back somewhere on the corner exit but he didn't and I hung on to fourteenth. It's not a special result but it was a special race because of the group we were fighting with and to finish 26 seconds behind the winner, I don't think there's any more we could have done in this race.
