What a race! These 21 laps were a really tough challenge for the riders. Fabio rode a faultless race though, and that is what got him onto the podium. It was great to see him battle at the front again where he belongs. Franky also did a good job. That and some nice battling have earned him seventh place, which is also a satisfactory achievement when you’re starting from so far back on the grid. All in all, this Race was a great morale boost at the start of the Asian leg of the season. It gives us extra motivation for Yamaha’s home GP in Japan next week.
