Tough race in Austria

Karel Abraham Karel Abraham

I am disappointed with this weekend. I like the circuit here in Austria, it suits my style, but we have not been able to produce a performance today. I have had a few difficulties with the front end, also the rear… we were also unlucky yesterday when I got blocked by another rider in qualifying. We should have done better in the race because I was riding on the limit, but in the end I lost out to Scott Redding. The pass he made on me, I couldn’t defend it – I had the throttle fully open but he got alongside me and made the pass, and it was impossible for me to come back on him. It would have been difficult to fight for the points today but I think we could have finished a couple of positions higher up. It was a tough race.
