Hi Everyone,

I'm back from my fifth Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race at the Red Bull Ring, it was a fantastic weekend.

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.

Friday we had two Free Practice sessions of thirty minutes and a Qualifying Practice of twenty-five. In the FP1 I learned the circuit and start making the first settings on the bike with Santi then I finished this FP1 6th.


In FP2 I managed to find my marks and make good chronos and I finished 6th.


For Qualifying I managed to have a good pace but I was not successful in making a good lap.I finished this qualification 14th.


For the first race I made a good start and on the first lap I was at 9th. Then a group of 12 riders formed a train and I finished this race 4th at 0.035 from first with incredible feeling on the bike.


For Race 2 I also made a good start and there was again a group in a train all the race. I was 10th, then for the last lap I pushed and I finished this race 7th with the fastest lap of the race.


Now, focus on next race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Misano.

Full gas!
