Aragon GP 2020 – Moto3 Race – Riders statements

Sergio García Dols

“Off the start I was able to follow the lead group, but little by little I lost pace. I was trying not to lose contact, but I was overtaken by several riders and was unable to regain ground. I am not satisfied at all with the race I had. I hope that next weekend we can redeem ourselves with a good result.”

“This was a very difficult weekend. I had never been in this situation before, of being in pain since Friday and with everything up against me. My start was not bad at all, and I was able to gain some places on the fast corners. Even so, I didn’t have the pace this weekend, the feeling with the bike was not good and the setup was bad. It was hard to push like we normally do and now it’s time to change things for next week.”
