Unfortunate Grand Prix of Spain for the Pramac Racing Team

The Grand Prix of Spain ends without any luck for the Pramac Racing Team. Mika Kallio, who started from the seventeenth position on the grid, makes it to overtake a few riders in the first few turns finding himself in thirteenth place. After a few laps Mika's lap times increased and three opponents overtook the Finnish rider. In the ninth lap Mika is obligated to enter the pit due to some problems at the rear break. His teammate, Niccolo Canepa, has concluded the race in sixteenth position notwithstanding a good start. Next MotoGP round in two weeks in Le Mans for the Grand Prix of France.

Fabiano Sterlacchini - Pramac Racing Technical Director

"Mika had some problems with the rear break. At the beginning of the race was going well, but all of a sudden he couldn't manage to control the situation and preferred to enter the pit. Now we have to understand what happened. It's a pity because we were doing a good comeback once again with very interesting lap times. We will be back in Le Mans in two weeks even stronger."

Niccolo Canepa - Pramac Racing rider - 16th in the race - 18th in the Championship

"We started quite well. During warm up we found a good technical compromise, but after a few laps in the race something happened in the front part of my bike that didn't allow me to result as fast. It's a pity because I could have finish this race probably three or four positions ahead. We will keep working hard to improve really soon."

Mika Kallio - Pramac Racing rider - DNF - 11th in the Championship

"I am very sad today because I was doing well. In the start I made it to overtake three opponents but then I felt something strange in the rear part of my bike. I thought that it would be gone really quickly, but the situation has gotten worst and I was obligated to enter the pit. It's a pity because I could have entered once again the top ten. Now we will analyze the situation to be able to improve in France in fourteenth days."
