“This result was a real shame, but sometimes it happens. We did a great job all through practice and qualifying, I was confident for the race and of course I was hoping to win today. I was pushing very hard at the start of the race and perhaps I pushed too much. There was some cloud cover today and maybe the front tyre was a little cooler than before, but whatever the reason, I made a mistake and lost the front. Looking on the positive side, we’ve been very fast here and that means we can take a lot of confidence to Misano next weekend.”

“I’m sorry for the team because they’ve worked really hard for me, and also to the fans who’ve given me great support. I wanted to win in America again but it wasn’t to be. There was some damage to the bike – the handlebar was bent inwards and the footpeg was worn away quite badly, but actually I was able to recover and ride at a fast pace to take some points at the end.”
