Hello everyone!

It's time to tell you how my performance at the Sachsenring was.

FP1/2: P4
It was a brand new circuit for me and I liked it a lot. It looked like a rollercoaster and I got really impressed from the first moment.

The good feeling with the bike was increasing lap by lap and I was focused on getting the right setting for the race.

QP: P5
The qualifying was definitely tight. I could reach a good lap that allowed me to get the fifth position for the grid.

I also was focused on getting a good pace for the races.

Race 1: DNF
I did not make a good start but as the laps passed I was recovering the good sensations on the bike. I overtook some riders but at the half of the race when I was fighting in the leading group other rider touched me and I fell down. I could not do anything to avoid it. Things like that happen every race and I got an apology from Lorenzo Fellon, so I forgot the crash from that moment.

Race 2: P8
In the second race I hadn't a good grip from my rear tyre so that it was making me lose a lot of time in the fast sectors. I also lost the good feelings in the points of the circuit that I felt comfortable with on previous days.

Another problem with the gears appeared with four laps to go so I tried to stay with the group to finish the race as close to the first positions as I could.

Anyway, there are no excuses for this result so that we will keep working to do our best in Austria!
