Blog | David Salvador - not everything I wanted from Austria 1

Hey mates!

First race 2020.

Last weekend I competed in my first Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race of the season in Austria.

In the Free Practices I was focused on getting a good setting of the bike.

QP: P10
It was a very weird QP for me because I couldn't have a clean lap. But despite this I knew that I had a good pace for the race so I could be in the front group.

Race1: P5
A group race. I made a mistake at the end of the race and that made me lose time. In the last lap I lost the contact with the leading group and that didn't allow me to fight for the win.

Race 2: P16
I'm happy for this race in some way because the first lap I was in P23 with a disadvantage of 4.5 seconds and some laps later I reached the P1. It was a pity that in the last lap I had a contact with another rider so I lost my win options.

This wasn't the desired beginning but that's racing. Now we have to keep working more than ever to show who we really are.

Thanks to everyone for reading me and thanks for giving me so much strength!

See you in few days!
