The Sachsenring in Germany was another new track for me so when I qualified in 14th position I was really happy as this was my best grid position of the season so far. I made a good start in Saturday’s race and got up to 13th position but then high-sided and crashed on the 4th lap when I ran wide onto a wet patch at turn 3.
I was pretty sore for Sunday’s race but still managed to score my first championship point for 15th place when a few of the front riders fell off.
When I was leaving the track the Australian Moto 3 rider Jack Miller said 'well done' and he said my Saturday crash looked painful and he didn't think I would be riding on Sunday. This made it all worthwhile!
Many thanks to Xavi and all of the Red Bull Rookie staff for a great weekend.
See you in Brno,
