THE GREEN TEAM FOUGHT AND ACHIEVED THE TOP TEN
After a warm up which was being run on a damp track condition mixed with rays of sunshine, the race started with dark clouds looming over the 4.423 km of the Spanish Circuit and with the track partially damp.
When the red light switched off Hèctor was been able to gain a couple of positions, leading a group composed by Valentino Rossi, Ben Spies and Karel Abraham, who were fighting for the 9th place. During the race Hèctor struggled a lot with himself due to his less confidence with these mixed track conditions, but he was able to fight for the whole race with the most experience rider Valentino Rossi.
The 25 years old Spanish rider got a positive 10th place under the white and black flag, taking home some important points for the ranking.
Next race is scheduled for the next week, on the Portuguese circuit of Estoril.
Hèctor Barberà - Rider Pramac Racing Team
"During this weekend I struggled a lot, even if this race was one of my home races. The Andalusian circuit layout didn’t fit my riding style and, to be honest, I had some issues also with the track condition because I wasn’t able to find the right confidence with the track. Despite that I tried to overcome the problems and I had fun, fighting with Vale, who is a great rider. My mood is pretty high and now I’m focused on the next race, which will take place in Estoril, a track that I like a lot".
Francesco Guidotti – Team Manager Pramac Racing
"We knew that on this track we probably could have had some problems and the weather didn’t help us. However, Hèctor was been able to fight with riders who have had a great background in the races and this give us a lot of confidence for the next appointments. It’s important, for me, to mention that the Green team had made a tirelessly and resounding work to give Hèctor a perfect bike to ride".
