After a good qualifying session on Friday I wanted to ride a good race on Saturday. The start on Saturday was good and I was able to get 4th into the first corner. It was a great group and I was able to lead them sometimes and tried to ride away, but I could not.
In the 10th Lap, I was off my line in the 2nd turn a bit, because Brad Binder passed me. Thus I touched the white line and I slid off with the rear wheel at full angle. I crashed, but could get back on and worked my way back up to 14th.
â€¨The nice race on Sunday started under a little colder conditions. This time I had a bad start and was just 7th into the first curve. I saw that there was a large group and rode in safety in the group.
â€¨The last 5 five laps, I then began to fight to get myself to the front. From 8th to 7th and so after I went on the front . Then I came up to the first 3 and there were 2 laps to go. I overtook and Willi Albert was 3rd. In the last lap, second-to-last corner, I started the attack on the lead, Sissis was passing me and Techer slowed down and I was almost into the back of his bike. But it was OK and I was glad about my best result at Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
â€¨Then I celebrated my second place even in the cool down lap with full grandstands at the Sachsenring.
Thanks for a great weekend the whole team and we'll see you in Brno.
â€¨I am really happy,
