Marc Márquez

“I felt good on the bike, I am feeling more competitive and like I am riding the bike well. Unfortunately, the results aren’t coming yet and we finished tenth, but I feel I’m riding well and I hope we can do it again tomorrow. Again, I was able to be stronger at the start of the race and in the second half I focused on defending. When I checked the pace with my team last night, it looked like we would be between eighth and twelfth and finally we finished tenth – so it looks like we were correct. Tomorrow, we start ninth which is important, but the long race will be very demanding. It’s something we are working on.”

Joan Mir

“After this morning we decided to go one direction for the race and at the start I almost made contact with Morbidelli which meant I lost a big opportunity to recover more positions in the first corners. From then I recovered a few positions, and I enjoyed the race more, the feeling on the front was better and I was able to ride the bike how it wanted. I got as high as passing Stefan but then I got the Long Lap penalties for touching the green at the end of the last corner. The message appears in Sector 1 where you can’t really look at the dashboard in MotoGP, so I saw just seeing an orange light. I then did the long laps, but it was very complicated. I know tomorrow can be better.”
