When I got back on track I gained a good rhythm, that was about the same as the riders in the front group. I think I could have done a good result here. I thank the team and Ducati for support. "

Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing): " I'm very happy, I was able to reach my target for this race. I fought throughout the race with my opponents finishing in twelfth place.

I thank Giacomo Guidotti and the team for all the work they have done this weekend. "
