Blog | Filip Salač on the pace in Misano

Hello everybody,

I want to tell you about my weekend in Misano.

It was my first time in Misano so in first practice I was looking for all lines and gears. In second one I tried to have a good setting to qualify practice but we had a some problems with the rear grip so we made some changes and it was better.

In qualification it wasn't such hot weather like in 1st and 2nd practice. I tried to push from the start because I had a new tyres and I was lap by lap faster. In the last lap when I could make my best lap but two corners before the finish line one rider was slower and I had to overtake him so I was slower.

My time was for 9th position but after riders had penalties before me I started from 7th on the grid.

In the race I had a good start but Sasaki and Viu touched and Sasaki crossed me so I had to brake and I lost many positions. Than I pushed and tried to go to the first group but I lost too much time so I fought in the second group.

In the last lap, the last corner I had good exit but I touched with other rider so in the end I was 11th.

I'm not happy with this place because I like this track and my setting was good so I think that I could have fought in the front group. But I have got another experience.

I want to say thanks all people from Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, my mechanics, my family and also my fans for help.

See you in Aragon,

Your Filip#12
