“I had to fight so hard. I had two similar motos in the end. I started both races inside the top twelve and had to fight like never before because this track is not an easy track to pass.”

“It’s very tricky and small in places, but anyway, I managed to find my way through. Honestly, I am super happy with myself today because I did all that I could.”

“It’s bittersweet because I feel like I gave 100% and it’s my home GP and I really wanted to win, but I have to be happy with myself and how I was riding. I gave it my all.”
