French 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 didn’t really expect a race like this. It was very difficult and at no time did I feel comfortable on the bike. I made a bad start and a lot of riders got past me, which hindered us a lot. I have to analyse the race well to see where I can improve. Today there was little I could do to fight against the other riders, as my feeling was so bad. I can’t take anything positive from the race, but I did have a good qualifying yesterday.”
