Karel Abraham

"It was disaster, which I did not cause, however it really affected in negative way all day. In last free practice Dani Pedrosa took me down. I have let him to overtake me, he lifted it up in the corner and from behind i crashed into him. First of all, I've got bruises but most importantly we have missed a substantial part of today's training. I rode on second bike, however on the first one we have prepared some changes of setting, which i was not able to try. Pedrosa came to apologize, but it does not matter.  During the qualifying i made a fast lap at the beginning, but there was some space for improvement. Unfortunately it started to rain and everyone entered to the garage so chance for better placement disappeared. The final time is not as bad and after that all what happened today we could be happy that it is like this."
