Gibernau strives to complete top 5

After struggling during practice at Laguna Seca, Sete Gibernau was back on pace for the race. The Movistar Honda rider made an impressive recovery from 13th on the grid to eventually take 5th in what he considers to be ‘one of his best races of the season'.

"I think that was one of my best races of the season, if not the best, even though the result might not reflect that," said Gibernau. "We found a better set-up than we had all weekend in the morning warm-up and I went out to give everything, even though I knew it would be tough starting so far back."

"We were able to maintain a high rhythm, the same as the guys at the front, and stayed consistent throughout the race. It hasn't been an ideal weekend. When we go well in qualifying we don't seem able to finish it off in the race and vice versa. I'm confident that when we manage to put three good days together again we'll be back to winning races."
