Starting from the 10th spot on the grid, Héctor slipped a place at the start, exiting turn two in eleventh position. After another two laps, the 25-years old established himself in a group that included Abraham, Espargarò and De Puniet, fighting for 9th place.

Despite pushing hard to remain in the battle for the top nine, the Spaniard wasn’t able to maintain his early pace, holding in 12th place alone until the chequered flag due to a lack of confidence with his Ducati.

The next appointment is scheduled in two weeks, when the MotoGP riders will visit the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Japan.

“The bright spot of today was that I finished the race, even if obviously, it wasn’t where I wanted to be. I had no feeling with the bike and I need to re-acquaint myself, following the long summer break due to the injury and the difficult weekend in Misano. Now we have to look forward, working hard to finish the 2012 World Championship in the best way”.

“It’s a shame because we expected a better result. Héctor told us that he still had a lack of feeling with the bike and he would like to have a one-day test, but at this point of the season, it is not possible. We should use all the free practice sessions in each round until the end of the season, trying to catch the best result’s possible.”
