Blog | Makar Yurchenko Макар Юрченко on the pace at the Sachsenring

Hello everybody,

The GermanGP was again a mix of conditions for all categories, but not for Rookies Cup, as we had all our track time in dry conditions with slicks.

It was not very warm during first day, so it was difficult to warm the tires, especially the right side (there are only 3 right turns in Sachsenring). For QP we improved the bike a bit and I have qualified 5th, only +0,26 from pole.

Saturday was much warmer and sunny. We had to change the setting a bit and it worked well. All 19 laps of the race I was battling for leading positions! I finished 5th, only +0,45 from 1st. I was disappointed with my mistake 3 laps to go, because it cost me a podium.

On Sunday it was raining cats and dogs, but for our race in the afternoon the track was almost dry. I made a good start, but lost too many positions on the first lap... I finished 6th, 4 seconds behind the leading group.

Now I am working hard to show better result in Austria, at the home GP of Red Bull and KTM.

See you there!
