After a stormy start to the Japanese GP weekend, the sun shone today at the Motegi circuit, the schedule for the final leg of the overseas tripleheader went ahead as planned.
After a short and well-deserved break the riders and the MotoGP teams will meet up again at the Valencia Grand Prix, the last round of the 2013 season, scheduled for Sunday, November 10.

“We didn’t have much time to find the correct setup for the bike. We tried some changes this morning after I had a few problems, but we didn’t improve much. Then we looked at the data after the session and made some additional changes that I felt in the race, which was good. Unfortunately, I found myself behind Nakasuga right after the start; I braked hard to avoid him, my rear wheel came off the ground and I went long in Turn 3. I came back on track and did everything I could to recover positions. Fortunately, I was able to find a good rhythm, and I steadily gained some positions.”
