Blog | Philipp at Silverstone

Hi all,

Last weekend was the third round of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Silverstone England. Silverstone was for almost every Rookie a new track. On Friday we had one free practice and two qualifying. In the free practice I finished 14th. After the training I worked with the track map. In the first qualifying I didn’t find a really good rhythm. With the 17th place I was a little bit disappointed. In the second qualifying I wanted to ride with some other riders but after two laps it started to rain. After this practice I finished 19th.

In the first race it started to rain in the grid. Then we changed the tires. My start was OK. At the beginning I passed a few riders but in the end they passed me again and I dropped back to 17th position.

The 2nd race was really short because I crashed going out of the pit lane. Then on the grid we have to change the footrest. It took too much time and I had to start from of the pit. After 2 laps I’ve got a technical problem and have to give up.

Now I go directly to the next round of the German championship in Sachsenring.

See you,
