For safety reasons, Race Direction reduced today's race to nineteen laps and implemented an obligatory pit stop to allow riders to change to bikes with fresh tyres. The race proved to be more challenging than usual for the Colombian because of the pain caused by a small fracture suffered yesterday in a fall during FP4.

Nevertheless, Yonny is already thinking about how to deal with the next race, which is scheduled for 27 October at Twin Ring Motegi. He hopes to continue on his path of improvement in order to get as close as possible to the Ducati Team riders.

“It was a strange race. We tried the bike switch this morning, but it was weird, especially then going back out on track with the new tyre and picking up the pace again. It wasn’t easy, but that’s how it was. We gained a few more points in the championship, and now we’re preparing for the last races. I suffered a bit this time, especially in the second half of the race, as I suffered a small fracture to my hand yesterday. I hope that it will be better in Japan, but for sure we have to work to find a little more grip in the rear tyre. I want to thank my team a lot, as they worked so hard to give me the chance to race today.”
