It was a complicated and unstable weekend at the Sachsenring for Jorge Navarro. During the Grand Prix the feedback was very positive and everything seemed to be in his favour starting from the good pace and the fast lap with which he set the track record in Q1. Unfortunately, the race appeared tough from the bad start which compromised Navarro’s race. After losing 10 positions Jorge started the comeback to cross the finish line in eighth position.
Moto2 stops for the summer break until the Czech Republic Grand Prix, 2nd-4th August.
JORGE NAVARRO #9 – 8th
“In the end, I believe we must remain positive. This weekend we have shown that we are very fast but at the same time we have had to deal with too many crashes. I know I have to control this; I have to do a reset to start thinking differently. Today I started very badly and then I didn’t want to risk too much, especially in the early laps. With the pace I had in the race I could fight for the podium if only I hadn’t missed the start. I am very sorry, but we must remain positive, even when we are not competing at our level. It will be a constructive pause to return to the maximum thinking of winning!
