Hi everyone,

Last weekend was the 6th round of the German Championship. On Friday we had three free practices. The first one was in the wet the other two were dry. We did OK lap times. For Saturday we changed nothing. On Saturday we had two qualifying sessions. In the first one I finished 7th. The lap times were good so we changed nothing for the second qualifying. I worked also with the track map. I was really motivated for the next session.

So I went out for the second qualifying. But I had a bad feeling on the bike. I couldn’t beat my time from the first qualifying but I didn’t lose a place. I was really disappointed with my performance. The weather for the race wasn’t clear. But I was well prepared for everything.

The Race: My start was really good. I was second after the first few corners. Then after the 2nd lap I lead the race for a few laps. Then we fought a lot. I knew that I could get on the podium. But in the last lap I did a big mistake and I had to go wide. I finished 7th. I was happy with my performance but not with the result.

Now I am looking for Brno for the next two Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup races.

See you,
