DONI TATA PRADITA 17TH

Good learning experience for Doni who finished in 17th position. He could have had a better result, but he was suffering from his right hand because of a physical problem.

In the beginning of the event, Doni was in 19th position, fighting with riders like Holland and Gunther. He tried his best to get a good result but his right hand was hurting. Nevertheless he could finish the race and this is a good experience for the young rider in this Supersport World Championship.

The Yamaha R6s did pretty well in Monza as Cal Crutchlow won the race with his team mate Fabien Foret finishing in 3rd position behind Joan Lascorz. Crutchlow increased his lead in the World Championship.

Doni Tata Pradita: "I was in a good position in the first corner. I pushed hard for the first 5 to 7 laps. Then my front brake lever was coming inside. I tried to ride more relaxed. I followed an other rider and passed him in the straight. But I had a problem with my hand as the brake lever is too short. It's not good for me. I tried hard at the end of the race. It's not so bad. I am sorry for my Indonesian friends as it could have been better. I could have finished 15th if I didn't have this problem with my hand. I will try to achieve a good result at the next race."

Team-manager Martial Garcia: "This 17th position is an unexpected result. Doni showed a good progression as he was faster during the race than during the practice. His very fast motorcycle could let him stay with the other riders. He could have finished 2 or 3 positions better, but he had some problem due to his physical shape. He finished 44 seconds behind the winner and he keeps on learning."
