Seventh for Chiarello

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Riccardo Chiarello suffered grip problems at Brno today and could do no better then seventh place at the end of the 12-lap, fifth round race. He had found a good set-up yesterday in final qualifying, but today's different temperature conditions played havoc with the settings and once again, grip was the issue. He was a solid fifth in the opening stages, but once he started losing grip, he could not hold the position and lost two places. The race was won by Craig Coxhell (Suzuki), who passed long-time leader Kenan Sofuoglu (Yamaha) on the very last lap, with Massimo Roccoli (Yamaha) taking third.

CHIARELLO - 7th
The grip today was very different to yesterday - maybe because of the overnight rain - and I just couldn't push as hard as I wanted to. If I had pushed harder, I would've crashed for sure. I hope for better things in the next round.
