“After the summer break, I found a good feeling with the bike and managed to get a decent position on the grid for the two races and we still had room to improve.
I am happy with the result of Race 1 because I came close to the Top 5 and just behind my teammate Hector. I had a smart race and in the end I was able to fight with Garzò, a rider that I respect a lot.
On Sunday, we finally reached the Top 5 goal. I had a good race even if I was struggling in the first sector, but I managed to overtake in the other sections of the track. I was fast, I had fun and I am really happy with the result. I thank all my team who did a great job this weekend, my family and sponsors. Now it's time to go to Misano for the last round.”

“On Saturday I made some mistakes in qualifying and that's a shame. I had the potential to start at least from the second row, but that's how it went.
On Saturday, in race 1, I recovered from P10 to P5, we can be happy. At the beginning I struggled a bit because it was squeezed between some riders and there were some crashes, so I stayed very focused. I felt good on the bike, on the track, and even though it started to rain a bit on the last lap, it was a nice conclusion, including a little battle with my teammate Alex.
On Sunday, on the other hand, from the beginning, the sensations on the bike were quite different from race 1. I encountered some problems as the pressure on the brake continued to decrease and I was losing grip on the rear. In the end I finished in eighth position, which was not what I wanted, but we have to accept it. Now let's go to Misano to give our best in the last stage.”
