"Today was a very mixed experience for the team, results-wise. Valentino really did all he could to get the victory. It's a shame - also for the team, but especially for him - that he just missed out. It was so close! Still, taking a second consecutive second place is very good, so we feel encouraged to keep up the good work. As so often in MotoGP, a small mistake can have a snowball effect and create a lot more trouble. After his jump start, Maverick lost a lot of time because of the ride through and the unnecessary long-lap lane. We can tell from his pace at the end of the race that he could have been a strong contender today. So, in the end there are some learning points after this experience, but I think one major positive that we can take away from this weekend is the overall bike performance. We've made another step and are looking forward to confirm the improvements at the next round in Jerez."
