Barberá and Pramac take ninth

Barberá and Pramac take ninth

The Spaniard's first race for the team in Qatar delivered a top-10 finish.

Héctor Barberá ended his first race in Pramac Racing colours in ninth place at the Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar, after fighting for much of the 22-lap contest for sixth place.

Héctor Barberá:
"Overall I'm pleased with the result of the race. I enjoyed riding on this track a lot. It’s a pity I didn't make a good start because my race pace was around fifth or sixth position. When I tried to get sixth position I made a mistake, running off track and losing some positions. My GP12 had a good set-up for this race and I could have ended up as the first Ducati rider if iIdidn’t make a mistake. Anyway my feeling with this bike is very positive and I’m sure that during this 2012 season I'm going to be able to achieve some consistent results. The next race is scheduled in two weeks in Jerez, where we have worked well during the winter test so I'm confident about it."
