Blog | Meikon Kawakami learning from his mistakes in Assen

Dear All,

The Assen race weekend was a little bit of a struggling weekend.

At the beginning of FP1, I struggled with the bike because of bump's, Santi did a some modification on suspension to FP2.


FP2 was better feeling with the bike and the lap time also improved.

In qualifying we were confident to do a good lap time to get a better start position, but it wasn't like we wanted.
I only could do 1 fast lap and then I had a crash, so my qualifying finished early.

Race 1: struggled after the crash to get the feeling with the bike and I finished P16.


Race 2: I made a good start and the feeling with the bike was better than in Race 1. In the race the wind was harder and it was a little difficult to control the bike.

I was in the second group, in the beginning I had another crash so couldn't finish my race weekend in the best way.

This interval was good for me, because I thought a lot about my mistakes at Assen to not make the same mistakes.

Thanks see you soon,
