Hi Everyone,

I'm coming back from my fourth Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup event at the Sachsenring. It was a fantastic weekend in the roller coaster.

On Thursday I arrived at the circuit with my helper and in the afternoon I went to do the track walk with Daniel Ribalta to take my first marks on the circuit.

On Friday we had two Free Practice sessions of thirty minutes and a Qualifying Practice of twenty five. In the FP1 I learnt the circuit and started making the first settings on the bike with Santi. Then I finished this FP1 18th.

In FP2 I managed to find my marks and make good chronos and I finished this FP2 10th.

For the qualification I was really excited to make good times and a good position on the grid. Then I finished this qualification 11th with a very good feeling with the bike.

In the first race of Saturday I had a good start and for the first laps I was in 6 position. After that I kept this position for 10 laps and then at the end of the race there was a red flag at 4 laps before the finish of the race and I finished the race 12th with a good feeling.

In the second race on Sunday I did a great start I was 5th on the first lap with the first group. Then I fought in this group the whole race to finish 11th with an incredible feeling with the bike.
