The eleventh round of the season at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway was an eventful race with LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl ending the 28-lap American round in 6th position after an entertaining battle at the front in the early stages.
Bradl had his second best qualifying performance of the season yesterday on his first visit to the Brickyard on a MotoGP machine heading into today’s race with hopes but the German could not match his yesterday’s impressive pace.
"Honestly it was not one of our best races so far and I am a bit disappointed because we looked stronger than this. Sixth position is not a disaster but I was expecting a bit more considering the pace of our qualification yesterday. Unfortunately I was not able to push in the first gear corners and I was losing quite a lot in the acceleration areas. I tried to pull it back in section 2 and section 3, which was possible in the begging but not over the all race distance. At the end I had to accept that today we were not so strong but we are doing well and we still hold the sixth position in the world standing."
