Abraham 13th on MotoGP debut

Abraham 13th on MotoGP debut

The Czech rider started his first premier class campaign in good form under the Losail floodlights.

While Randy de Puniet crashed and his team-mate Loris Capirossi was forced to retire from the race, the Cardion AB Motoracing rider made a good start and was 14th after the first lap. Abraham also finished ahead of Toni Elías, who crashed on lap 19 when he was more than 15 seconds behind the Czech rider.

“I am sorry that they did not complete the race because I wanted to battle with them,“ said Abraham, who also had technical problems during his debut in the premier class.

“I had problems with the brake on lap two. I ran off the track and almost hit the gravel. I lost contact with the group in front of me and unfortunately I wasn‘t able to catch them.“

“My physical fitness is okay, but I have to work on my hands because in the end of the race I lost some time due to lack of strength,“ concluded a satisfied Abraham.
