Sepang: Here comes the rain again

Karel Abraham Karel Abraham

I didn't want a wet race but it's what we got. Warm up was really good because I did my best ever lap here but then it started to rain. I settled myself and felt comfortable, I had one big moment when I lost the rear but didn't crash, and then a couple of laps later I lost the front and crashed with the bike completely upright. Maybe I used too much brake but it's hard to understand how you can lose the front like that. I can do a fast lap in the wet but it seems I can't do twenty so it's something I need to work on with my crew during the winter. It's a shame because I was catching Viñales and he finished ninth so I don't know if I could have kept his pace later on but I felt comfortable at that point. The crash was a surprise and it's a shame because we lost a bunch of points we could have had from here.”
