Tenth place for Barberá at Silverstone

Pramac Racing Team’s sole rider, Héctor Barberá, spent the weekend building a good race setup, qualifying strongly in the dry yesterday to start sixth on the grid.

The Spanish rider didn’t get a great start, dropping back to 8th place, and he managed to remain in this position for more then 13 laps, but toward the end he was joined and overtaken by factory Ducati rider Valentino Rossi, and ultimately took the chequered flag in 10th position.

The overall standings, with six rounds having been completed, have Barberá and the Pramac team in the top ten, taking home six important points for the World ranking.

"It was a difficult race, affected by a quick rear tyre deterioration, which restricted both corner entry and top speed. Now we have to understand what happened on our bike to avoid this kind of issue in the future."

Francesco Guidotti – Team Manager

"We expected a tough race, but the result is definitely not up to our potential. The quick rear tyre deterioration limited our performance and now we need to analyse our data to comprehend what happened today."
