2019 Thai GP – Rider statements
We started the day well but in the last run we had a big crash on our out lap. I was feeling OK when I arrived in the medical centre but we followed the doctor’s procedures and went for some checks.
The most important thing is I am OK, I’m in some pain but OK. In the afternoon I was able to ride well and I am happy with what we achieved. We only had to modify our plan a little bit but I was able to be fast immediately.
This morning I was quite satisfied with what we did because we did a lot of laps with good pace. In the afternoon we changed the setting but it didn’t work as well as we had wanted in the warmer temperature.
The position in the end isn’t great but our distance to the front isn’t too bad. Tomorrow our goal is to get within one second of the front.
