2019 Czech GP – Rider statements
At the start I believed in the slick tyres with how the conditions were changing. In the end when the rain came back and the track got wetter it was difficult! Maybe in hindsight I took a little too much risk, but in the end we finished in a good way and I am happy.
Tomorrow it looks like it will be a sunny day so a normal race. With the conditions we have had, it is hard to know where everyone is but the target is the podium!
Today was a tough day with the conditions, it was difficult for me as it has been over a year since I’ve ridden a MotoGP machine in the wet. I needed some time to get adapted but we found a good direction quite quickly.
Of course I would like to be further up the grid and the target is to finish in the points and push for the top ten. I also want to say a big congratulations to Marc because what he did was incredible to watch.
