Gabriele Giannini Assen

Blog | Gabriele Giannini riding hard but not getting the results he wanted


The appointments at Assen and Sachsenring are just over and fast!

When you go to a high level such as the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup you realise how much work you have to do to be competitive.

At Assen I had already understood that I was too far behind the rest of the group: In Saturday's Race 1 I ended on P19 and Sunday's 2nd race in P15, after a Friday of free practice and qualifying that was quite difficult.

At Sachsenring the same story, in the first session of free practice on Friday I was penalised by the Director of Racing for repeating a mistake, and so I got the last position on the starting grid.

But the difficulties did not bother me in Race 1 P16 in the wet. In Race 2 I was P18 on the dry track. I had started without penalties in P19 on the grid, I was loaded, I wanted to do better, but due to an off track excursion I lost positions and I had to recover.

I do not feel satisfied with the results so far obtained, I have to work hard and pull out the extra that I missed in these rounds.

The break until Brno will be dedicated only to training and I have to concentrate because I really want to get good results!

Thanks to all those who support me on track and of!!

See you soon!
