2019 San Marino GP – Rider statements


It wasn’t the best Qualifying for us, unfortunately I made a mistake on the second tyre so I had to finish the run early. We start from the second row tomorrow so it is not a terrible day and we are aiming to fight for victory.

Our goal is the championship and that is what we are focused on. I felt really good in FP4 aside from the small crash so I am quite confident in our race pace. In the last lap I was pushing at 100% for a fast time but came across Rossi and also ran wide out of the limit.


For us it was a so-so day,
I think after the Friday we had I was expecting to close the gap to the front a little more but we were able to make another step in Qualifying. Still we need to make another step, but we already have some ideas for Warm Up.

For the race we are aiming to finish as close as possible to the winner and I think we can make some progress forward.
