The first round of the final MotoGP World Championship tripleheader at the Sepang International Circuit ended today with a rousing tenth place finish for Yonny Hernandez in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd that filled the grandstands.
The perseverance and the determination of the Colombian rider, who spent much of the weekend searching for the best set-up for his Desmosedici GP13, allowed him to get one of the best results of his racing career.
The Ignite Pramac Racing Team and Yonny are now getting ready to face the next round in the calendar, from 18th to 20th October, at the Phillip Island Circuit, Australia.
Yonny Hernandez – Ignite Pramac Racing Team: "I am very happy with how the race went. This weekend I learned a lot from the bike and the team. It's a totally different way to ride but I am adapting quite quickly and I hope to continue in this direction. I'm glad to have been able to enter into the Top Ten and now I would like to work hard starting from the first day of the next round in Phillip Island so I can find immediately the correct setup to be able to maintain a good pace for the weekend and for the race. In general I am very happy and I want to thank the whole team for giving me the opportunity to race in the best possible way."
