Round 13

Misano Track Report

September 10, 2018

What was the strategy for the Misano race?

With Marc it was to have the best set-up and a good pace. We knew the race would be difficult, because all the lap times were very close. Dani and Cal also had very good races. Dani started the weekend with some problems but in the race he made a step forward. Cal did the same and during the race he was even reducing the gap on the leaders. We are very happy with their results.

The positive points and negative points after the race?

The positive is that Marc came here with a 59-point championship advantage and he leaves here 67 points ahead. The negative is that it’s true that our competitors are really pushing and Ducati is now very competitive.

The view from pit wall during the race?

As usual, when your riders are fighting for victory you are a bit scared. The race was nice, intense and finally we were lucky because Cal also finished on the podium.

The inside story apart from official comments?

This weekend we again had Stefan Bradl racing as wild card. He did a positive job but unfortunately he crashed towards the end of the race.
