“It was a tough weekend, as I’ve not been in a good physical condition. However, in the race I just tried to make it through and do my best. It was hard because there was a lot of chattering, but we still improved the bike compared to the other days. We just have to keep working. This is the way we need to go and I’m happy with the team dynamics. I’m looking forwards to Misano.”
