Let's be clear. Racing is our job and we do it with joy, however it goes. We like to participate and work hard, but of course we prefer to get on the podium.
The Sachsenring race in Germany is one to remember.
Black for Petrucci, ko, and gray for Rins, who at least brought home important points, but silver for Canet, who got a truly historic podium for him and his team.
The Spaniard did a spectacular race and gave us a smile that we never lost, anyway.
We would like to point out that we now have a little foot out of this pandemic and that it is time to recover, albeit responsibly, what is ours, but we are sure that you already know.
Let's enjoy racing, freedom and summer in safety!
Come on, let's go ...
ALEX RINS: 11th
"It was a bit hard today, because my arm still isn’t 100%, but this track has more left-handed corners than right-handed, and I think that helped me quite a lot, it meant the pain was manageable. But I didn’t feel very comfortable when the rain arrived, I lost my feeling. After the rain went away I felt better but then I was losing grip on the rear, it dropped off more than I thought compared to the practices. But I kept trying and I was able to make some overtakings at the end of the race and I’m happy about that. It won’t be easy to ride again in just a few days, but I will rest and focus on Assen."
DANILO PETRUCCI: DNF
"I’m really sorry,because we were strong all the weekend. We did a good start and in this race it was all about managing the rear tyre. Unfortunately, Iker started to pass me and to be very aggressive. He was braking very hard in one corner and Marquez followed his example and crashed and I crashed with Marquez. I have no words, we don’t have any points for the team. I’m very angry, but moreover very sorry."
ARON CANET: 2nd
"I am very happy with how the race went; we went from less to more this weekend. Friday was difficult and saturday we took a step forward. We weren't expecting the podium, but we've never given up."
