Barbera eager to prove his worth

The Fortuna Honda team had a tough weekend in Catalunya, with Jorge Lorenzo injuring his shoulder when he collided with Alex de Angelis, while team-mate Hector Barbera missed a podium finish opportunity after damaging his bike.

Barbera had a great start and soon pushed for top positions, before paying the toll after a hard-fought duel with Aprilias Simone Corsi.

I was running faster than him, I asked him to let me through so I could keep on pushing. Then he started to have problems, he was braking and lapping slower than when he was behind me, I couldnt understand that, explained Barbera.

Corsi hit me on the side and damaged the air intake. In some parts of the track, I couldnt open the throttle and one of the cylinders had problems. I couldnt do anything about it and lost more and more time.

Its a shame because I could have fought for the podium, but anyway, Im happy as I proved that I can ride at the front and Im looking forward to the next races, I want to confirm that Im improving.
