FOUR POINTS IN THE AMERICAN GRAND PRIX FOR CANEPA

Not an easy start for the Pramac Racing rider in the Grand Prix of America, in fact, Niccolo Canepa found him self in last position in the first turns. The Italian rider have tried to push more to recover some positions, but the missing of grip in the front of the bike and seeing some riders crash in front of him, made him take the decision to don't risk and take home four world championship points. Niccolo, together with his Technical staff, will have to find a solution for the next race to find a better feeling straight away in the firsts laps to remain with the other riders and fight for better positions. Therefore appointment in two weeks time at the Sachsenring circuit for the Gran Prix of Germany.

Fabiano Sterlacchini - Pramac Racing Technical Director

"It has been a hard weekend for us since the first practice session. It seems that yesterday we have found some good solutions but today things didn't go in the right direction. Niccolo, as it happened in other races, doesn't have the confidence with the front part of the bike at the beginning and loses too much time from the other riders. Than it's not easy to ride by your self. We hope to be able to improve in the next race and obtain a better final result."

Niccolo Canepa - Pramac Racing rider - 12th in the race - 16th in MotoGP Classification

"Hard race for us today. In the first laps I couldn't push more because I didn't have enough grip with the front part of the bike, in addition I saw other riders fall in front of me and I thought the track wasn't in the best condition in that moment. Once the front tyre was warmer it was too late because I found my self practically alone. I maintained yesterday's afternoon rhythm, but it wasn't enough to reach the riders in front of me. We will try to do better in two weeks at the Sachsenring."
