Niccolò Antonelli, with tire problems, finished eighth in the race, placing him second in the championship standing with 44 points.
#99 CARLOS TATAY – 6th
“I am very happy. A little be upset about the long lap but I prefer to stay with the positive part of today’s race and the learning as a rider. It is something that we will have to improve for the next races. This weekend we have overcome the strange situation we had at the beginning of the season, but with work we have managed to do a step forward. Hard working is the only way I know to achieve my goals. I think I could have fought for the podium because I lost 2 seconds due to the long lap, but this is how races are. I have given my 100%!”
# 23 NICCOLÒ ANTONELLI – 8th
“I don’t understand what happened, I didn’t have any rear grip. I have seen that other riders crashed at the same point where I felt being at the very limit. I thought that something was wrong with the tyre. At the end of the race I felt a little better, although I don’t understand why I didn’t have the same feeling as in the practice. I sincerely expected to get a better result”.
