Lack of bike-feel hinders Barberá in Aragón

Monday, 1 October 2012

Pramac Racing Team’s Héctor Barberá ended yesterday’s Aragón GP in 12th place after a lack of feel with his Desmosedici put paid to the Spaniard’s change.

Starting from the 10th on the grid, Barberá dropped a place at the start, exiting turn two in eleventh position.
After another two laps, the 25-years old established himself in a group that included Cardion AB Racing’s Karel Abraham, Power Electronics Aspar’s Aleix Espargaró and his teammate Randy de Puniet, fighting for 9th place.
Despite pushing hard to remain in the battle for the top nine, the Spaniard wasn’t able to maintain his early pace, holding onto 12th place alone until the chequered flag due to a lack of confidence with his Ducati.

"The bright spot of today was that I finished the race, even if obviously, it wasn’t where I wanted to be.
I had no feeling with the bike and I need to re-acquaint myself, following the long summer break due to the injury and the difficult weekend in Misano.
Now we have to look forward, and work hard to finish the 2012 World Championship in the best way."
