“I am very happy to be honest. First of all, I’d like to dedicate this victory to my family, my team and my dear friend Jason. I know he was watching me from above. Towards the end of the race, I felt strong, I felt that I could push a little bit more, so I did, and here we are. Can’t wait to be back on the bike in Assen."

“It was a good race for me because I’m improved my lap time and my feeling on the bike. It was good. I think it is a good step forward, we still need to work to stay in the top positions but I am sure we can’t get there. We’ll see in Assen. I would like to thank my team for their hard work and congratulate my teammate for winning the race today."
