“It was a shame to throw the whole weekend away, because we had a good pace and throughout the weekend we have done well. I made a good start and was trying to pull in the early laps, but Maverick has happened to me and seemed to have more pace in the last sector ─ went a bit ─. In the tenth lap I crashed, opening gas;’ve done quite normal and I think I have gone over a bump or something así. Now we have to think at Le Mans, a track I like a lot and we will see how it goes “.

“We knew it would be a tough race and that in the first round would be very risky. I made a good start and then I took it easy, filling gaps and trying to pass other riders. But out of the last corner, a pilot has been crossed, I tried to pass it inside and when closed touched me. That’s racing. We have to stay with the experience and the information we have obtained when I turned just the rest of the test and try to improve for Le Mans, which will be a new track for me. “
