Marc Márquez

“The result of this Grand Prix was a culmination of the new approach we are taking as in Silverstone. We are trying to understand many things with the bike and avoid falling, finally we finished a race. At one point in the race my times were quite good, but I was the only one with the soft rear. It’s good to finish a race but obviously we are aiming for more and we need to keep on working. It’s been a busy weekend here in Austria and now we see what’s possible in Montmeló.”

Joan Mir

“I’m not happy about today, I felt that we were doing a solid weekend for our situation. It’s a shame to fall and miss out on more laps. I had something with the brakes, which can always be a critical point here, and then I went wide and lost the front. When you’re riding on the limit and have a small problem, it’s difficult to stay on a bike. The positives are that I was able to fighting with Marc across the weekend and I was not as far behind as previous races. We improved our confidence too so we need to carry this feeling into the next races.”
