Filip Salač Red Bull Ring

Hello everyone,

Last weekend wasn't the best for me but we made another step.

In Free Practice 1 it was my first time on the Red Bull Ring, so I was looking for the ideal line and a good feeling with the bike and I was 4th.

In second practice we made a change but it was a bad step, so for Qualifying we put back the setting and it was ok. I tried to do a fast lap but in every lap I had to overtake some riders because I was in the group.

On the last lap I made a place for good lap and I pushed hard and in the end was a nice 4th. After good qualifying and a good dinner was the 10th anniversary with very good and famous riders and people. It was very nice evening and I enjoyed it.

At first race in the warm up lap I knew that was something with the bike but I didn't know what. After a hard race and funny race in the first group I was 11th. We saw the bike and than we saw the rear brake it was on for the full race and my bike wasn't so fast.

In the second race I wanted to be very fast but I wasn't at my pace and I made mistakes and I went in the second group and we fought to last lap and I was again 11th.

So last weekend wasn't the best for me and I hope that this week in my home GP will be better.

I want to say thanks to all mechanics and all from the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, my partners and my family.

See you at Brno!

Your Filip #12
