“For the first time this season we struggled to find the pace we needed. I think I could have gone with Barragan if I hadn’t lost time on lap two, but Morales was a little too quick here. My main objective today was to take points from Silva and we were together most of the race. I could pass him but his bike was faster than ours down the straight, so my idea was to leave it for the last lap because he could only pass us at the end of the home straight. I passed him several times to keep him guessing and finally he made a mistake. After that I caught and passed Rivas to take third. This was the track that most worried me at the start of the season. Now the top four are all within 12 points and we have two very challenging tracks, Portimao and Valencia, coming up and we’re feeling good about our chances.
