This weekend was the 7th round of the German championship at the Red Bull Ring in Austria. This circuit was new for every rider. On Friday we had three free sessions. Two were in the dry and one in wet conditions. So we were well prepared for the two qualifying sessions on Saturday.
The first session went very well. I finished in 2nd position. We found a few things for the second qualifying. The second session was much warmer than the first. I couldn’t ride faster. I dropped one place back. The first row was good. In the warm-up I did my running in job.
The Race: My start was good. After the first lap I was in 4th place. Then I was in a three man group which was battling for the win. A few laps before the end I was a little bit unlucky an droped back. I finished the race in 2nd place.
Now I am looking forward to Misano.
