Catalan GP 2020 – Moto3 Race – Riders statements

Sergio García Dols

“It has been a very positive weekend. We worked a lot on our pace, thinking about the race, which is what we were finding hardest. I think the weekend went very well; in the race I was riding well and calmly, and I was up at the front. It was a shame about the final laps, since I went wide a few times and I think that is what meant I was unable to make the podium. I’m very happy; we’ve taken a big step forward and now it’s time to continue like this.”

Ryusei Yamanaka

“I really enjoyed the race because I fought hard. I didn’t get a good start and that forced me to have to fight a lot, although I finally tried to move up the field. The front group separated a bit and I stayed in the second pack until the end, and there I was able to pass some other riders. It was difficult but we managed to score a very important point ahead of the next race.”
