„This wasn´t bad race, but it would be much better, if I hadn´t loose so much in the first three laps. I run practically the same lap times as Cal Crutchlow and Scott Redding, but I couldn´t close the gap made at the beginning of the race. On the other side the good news is that the gap behind me was also wide. This allowed me to finish the race without any risk.”

„I think this was successful weekend for our team. Karel did very fast laps in the race and he was able to stay close to Scott Redding and Cal Crutchlow.  Unfortunately we lost a lot in the first lap. Karel was 19th and this keeps him out of the chance to fight with Crutchlow. After the half of the race Karel tried to push harder to catch Cal, but the rear tyre started to be too slippery. The target for next races is clear – we need to be faster in the first three laps to stay in the group we belong to.”
