I'm going to tell you about my weekend in Motorland the best of the whole season in results.
On Friday I got the third best time for the grid after two big FP, it was not the best QP since I was all the grill in a group and we did not go for a clean lap.
In the first race I decided to stay behind the group and attack with 5 laps to go. I did so, in addition the group was left with fewer drivers after several falls which made it easier.
I got a third position and although it was my first podium in the Rookies Cup I was not quite happy because in my head I thought I was winning the race. I made the planned strategy but it did not go perfectly since I did not expect the overtaking by of Billy and Noguchi just 100m before the last curve.
In the second race we did not choose a good development which complicated the race. I decided to carry out the same strategy but I did not end up doing the same because with three laps left while I was in the fifth position an error made dropped me to the end of the group thus taking away the options facing a podium or even victory, we finally got a P9.
We did not end up in a good position but that motivates us more for the season next year. I want to thank the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup for that new opportunity for next year to give our maximum.

And until next year!!
