Blog | David Salvador having a fantastic run in Assen

Hello everyone,

I'm going to describe how the Dutch GP developed for me during last weekend.

FP1/FP2: P4
Assen was a brand new circuit for me but in spite of that I achieve a good adaptation. I tried to get the suitable setting in the free practices and I also worked focused on my pace.

QP: P9
I couldn't run my strategy as I wanted but anyway I was having good feelings with the bike and I knew I could perform two good races.

Race 1: P5
It was a very tough race for me. I didn't make a good start a and few laps after that a rider fell down so I got cut of the leading group.

In the second group I fought hard together with Kunii and Fellon and I finally beat them finishing in fifth position.

Race 2: P2
Awesome race. I did fight until the end and I was able to reach the P2 as well as my first podium in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Championship.

It was a hard race because the leading group was very big. In the last lap I reached the first position but I got overtaken by Tatay and Baltus. But I did not give up and I overtook Baltus in the last chicane achieving the P2.

I want to give special thanks to all the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Team for this amazing weekend in my very first time at Assen's Circuit.

I also want to thank my mechanic, my sponsors and my family for all the support showed during the whole weekend.
