THIRD CONSECUTIVE TOP TEN FOR ESPARGARO'. KALLIO THIRTEENTH

Weather conditions improves at Silverstone, where today took place the MotoGP British Grand Prix, and also the Pramac Racing riders, that concluded the race in tenth and thirteenth positions, have improved their lap times. Catalan rider, Aleix Espargarò, wasn't lucky at the start of the race and in the first turn he found himself in last position. His determination brought him to reach and overtake lap after lap Barberà, Bautista and Capirossi concluding the race in tenth position. This is the third consecutive top ten finishes for the Pramac Racing rookie after the ninth and eight position conquered in Le Mans and Mugello. Mika Kallio has instead started better but in during the race he tried to fight for the eleventh position and with three laps left he had to give up two positions. The Finnish rider will be able to do try to improve next weekend in Assen during the Dutch Grand Prix.

Fabiano Sterlacchini - Pramac Racing Technical Director

"We made it to improve the set up of our bikes, but not enough as Mika couldn't go further then the thirteenth position. A pity, we really cared to do well on this track. Aleix made it to conquer the tenth position maintaining his good moment. We are trustful that next weekend, when we will be in Assen, we will be able to do much better with both of our riders."

Aleix Espargarò - Pramac Racing - 10th in the race - 13th in the Championship

"Bad start that has ruined my race. I lost the middle group straight away and after overtaking three riders I basically ridden all alone for most of the race. A bit boring. Tenth position is anyway a good result and now we have to think to next weekend when we will be in Assen: it is one of my favorite circuits and I hope to be able to conquer a even better position."

"The situation compare to yesterday has sensibly improved, today we have at least made it to fight with some of the other riders. It is clear that the thirteenth position isn't our objective but as the weekend went we couldn't expect for more. We hope that the work done today it can become useful for next weekend. Last year in Assen we were really competitive and I hope to result at least as competitive also this season."
