The one from Cervera starts the World Cup that he hopes will be the one of reconquest, but after suffering the last one with the motorcycle and injuries, he prefers to go with patience. “I feel like I’m riding pretty ‘clean’, I’m still working to understand the front end of the new bike, so my riding doesn’t look like the ‘Marquez style’ yet,” he noted.
“The lap time is coming up. It’s about being patient, it’s very early and this is normally a track where we struggle a bit. However, it’s still Friday, the weekend has just started. Today I pushed, tomorrow again,” he added.
