Melandri outside top ten again

Melandri outside top ten again

Marco Melandri was unable to find a good feeling or set-up for his Desmosedici GP8 all weekend at Catalunya and the Italian could manage no higher than an eleventh place finish.

Ducati Marlboro´s Marco Melandri gave his reaction after finishing in eleventh place at the Gran Premi Cinzano de Catalunya.

Marco Melandri – eleventh

`It´s fair to say that things went as well as could be expected after practice. I got a decent start considering how far back I was and ended the first lap in ninth or tenth place, but I couldn´t hold on to it. There wasn´t much I could do because I was losing so much time in the long corners and it was easy for the other riders to pass me. Now we have two days of tests to see if we can take any steps forward but we need to make a massive change. We´ll keep trying.´
