Hello everyone,

I'm going to tell you some things about my last 3 weeks.

In Sachsenring with Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup it was a good race weekend for me because in first race after mistake in the last corner I finished 4th and in second race I finished 3rd after big battle with other riders in the group.

The week after I was in Motorland Aragon for the Moto3 Junior World Championship and it wasn't bad. I was fast from the beginning and in qualifying I was good from the start but then I had an electronic problem and my bike stoped so I finished 18.

In the race I was fighting in the second group and I finished first of the group and I was 9th.

Last week I made my first ever wild card Moto3 World Championship race. In free practice I was better than I thought I would be and in FP3 I finished 12th but 7 minutes before the end of the practice I was 2nd.

So it was good that all the teams and fans saw that I'm fast! In the qualifying I didn't do any fast laps because all the riders were waiting so they broke my lap.

In the race we changed the fuel map on the grid and it was worse than we wanted. My bike didn't have power in the race and it was really lazy. I finished 24th but I'm happy for this weekend because when my bike functioned well I was in the front.

Now I'm preparing for the Austrian race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Spielberg. I want to fight for my first win there!
