Q2 Great Britain GP 2019 – Riders statements


With the first tyre I felt really, really good and I just tried to find a good lap and I did my first lap alone. When we went out with the second tyre there was a fair bit of traffic, I was on top in the results so I did not want to push first. We were then waiting a bit and playing with our strategy and then on the last lap the tyres were ready and we made a really good lap. Valentino was ahead, maybe a little too far because I couldn’t profit fully from the slipstream. I think we can be strong in the race tomorrow, but for sure there are many rivals for tomorrow.


I am still limited a lot by my physical condition, tomorrow will be a difficult day but I want to race to test myself. I’m realistic about what to expect from the race, it’s not something I have experienced before in my career but I am the only rider on track with this kind of injury. It’s important to finish this weekend because it means I can be physically and mentally more prepared for the next test and races. We will try our hardest tomorrow and avoid any unnecessary risks..
