Hello,

In the FP1 I felt very good because I never rode in this circuit and I was second!!

In the FP2 I felt good and I tried to do a constant rhythm for prepare the race.

In the QP I felt incredible because I was doing good lap times but in the last lap I was showing red sectors but I found another slower rider and I lost my fastest lap.

In the Race 1 I had no luck and my bike stoped when I was going to the track.

I had to run all the pit lane to take the spare bike and when I am going to take the other bike my bike started and I had to run all the pit lane back another time.

I was very exhausted and I had to start to the last position in the grid.

I started not so well but in the first lap I was in 13 position!! During the race I was in 7 position but the fatigue made me finish in 10th position.

In the Race 2 I started well and I was in the first group all the race but in the last lap I was in 6th position and in the last chicane I went for 3rd and when I was going to be in podium another rider touched me and I crashed.
