The report of the CatalanGP of the MotoE World Cup
“Today we started the race from a good position, second, and with a lot of confidence with the bike. The race was very fought, we had good fights, and I must say that the bike worked very well, even on the straights. I felt strong, aggressive and able to defend my position, but on the last lap I couldn't attack what I wanted and we will work on that part of the bike. I felt good to fight for the victory and being third is good, although perhaps we could to have done something else. I am happy and we are third in the general classification. It is time to think about Assen now, where we will start taking more risks."

“I started the race with a lot of confidence and with a great feeling with the bike. Despite starting from sixteenth position, I was motivated to do a good performance. I started well and tried to be in the group, and in a corner I tightened braking too hard and I lost the front wheel. We will work on the front to improve the feeling, but despite the result, I must say that this weekend I felt very good, competing again, and that is the line we must continue. Looking forward to the next race, which is in Assen, at home."
