"I struggled a little yesterday, in particular because of the tricky track conditions, but today I’m much happier and confident with my GP12. I’m so happy to be the most consistent and fastest Ducati on the field, even if towards the end I dropped more than three tenths of a second. Today’s result highlights the excellent work done by my crew and I have to say thanks to everybody."
Marco Rigamonti –Crew Chief
"We are happy about today’s result, even though we could have achieved also the second row on the grid. Nonetheless we were able to work constructively for whole day and this made a great base for tomorrow’s race."
