M U G E L L O 🇮🇹
I got to grips with the iconic track that is Mugello but we had a lot of work to put into getting the bike set up right. We had a plan of attack for qualifying however I made only one lap due to an engine problem which meant I was to start from the tenth row. We made a step forward in warmup ready for the race. Going into the race I felt confident we could make another step forward but it wasn’t to be as I unfortunately crashed out.
I am okay after the crash but it’s not the ideal way to finish the race obviously. I didn’t feel like I was over the limit, I was riding hard but I didn’t have a good feeling with the track temperature much higher than yesterday. I spent ten laps behind the group, to understand where we can improve. It is my first time here, whereas other riders have spent years riding at Mugello, and I feel that we have made gradual progress over the weekend which was shown by how competitive we were in the warm-up. I am sorry to the team because in the end we do need more information to improve the bike, but I am here to fight and unfortunately today I crashed. It happened off the throttle between turns 4 and 5 – I had vibrations there all weekend but on this occasion I couldn’t save the bike and it just kept sliding until I hit the ground.
As ever we must take the positives from the weekend and for me I learnt another track In the process. My focus is on the next Spanish GP. I am fortune to be fit after the crash so now I take the information gathered from this weekend at mugello and put all efforts into our next race
Thanks as always for the support
