Riding at a pace that was just a few tenths of a second from that of his fellow Ducati riders, Yonny fought for the entire race to stay close to the top ten before eventually crossing the finish line in twelfth place.

All in all, it was a positive day for the Colombian, whose main goal was initially to understand the bike’s behavior and the duration of the tyre in view of the challenging races that he’ll face during the upcoming tripleheader, scheduled start in Sepang on Sunday, 13 October.

Yonny Hernandez – Ignite Pramac Racing Team: “I’m very happy that I was able to finish the race. I kept a good pace, and now I know some more important things pertaining to the behavior of the bike. Compared to a CRT, it’s indeed very different in terms of tyres, traction control and power. I think it’s been a good start, and I’d like to continue on this path, improving step by step and getting better results.”
