we ran with Melandri for several laps and continued to push, though then
4 laps from a finish we felt some quivering and a behind was sliding
around. we realised it was a same emanate we had during Assen in competition 1. I
wish to appreciate my Althea guys, who came adult with a poignant chassis
resolution that we’d never attempted before, that authorised me to find the
right spin of certainty and entirely demonstrate myself. I’m so contemptible we was
incompetent to finish a race, though we have to take this opening and
lift it to Laguna…”

though it’s a empathize we couldn’t have reached a tip 10 in a initial race
to start a tiny serve brazen in competition two, with a retreat grid.

races difficult, as being so distant behind on a grid during a brief circuit
like Knockhill is nearby unfit to come behind from. It’s not easy to
overtake, though we kept chipping divided and while sixth and ninth isn’t
