Alonso López, 12th, +26.835
"I'm very happy with how the race went. I honestly knew that I could get closer to the points zone but I didn't expect to be twelfth. I felt very comfortable on the bike, setting a good pace and that makes me very happy with this result. We have worked very well with the team all weekend, also very comfortable on the bike and I can only thank Sito for the opportunity he gave me this weekend. "
Stefano Manzi, 20th, +44.613
"This morning in the warm up we have found something that has allowed us to be faster, but already in the race the same problems have appeared throughout the weekend. A complicated race and we hope to change the situation in Assen next weekend".
