Top ten for Pramac´s Barberá

Tuesday, 1 May 2012

Following a fierce battle with Ducati´s Valentino Rossi, Pramac Racing´s Hèctor Barberá managed to secure 10th place in the race at Jerez.

After a warm up run on a damp track mixed with rays of sunshine, the race started with dark clouds looming over the 4.423 km of the Spanish Circuit and with the track partially damp.

As the lights went out, Barberá was soon able to gain a couple of positions, leading a group containing Rossi, Ben Spies and Karel Abraham, who were all fighting for the 9th place.

During the race, Barberá struggled a lot with confidence on the mixed track conditions, but he was able to fight for the whole race with the experienced Rossi. The Spanish finished a positive 10th place, taking home some important points for the championship.

"During this weekend I struggled a lot, even if this race was one of my home races. The Andalusian circuit layout doesn’t fit my riding style and, to be honest, I also had some issues with the track condition because I wasn’t able to find the right confidence with the track.
Despite that I tried to overcome the problems and I had fun, fighting with Vale, who is a great rider.
My mood is pretty high and now I’m focused on the next race, which will take place in Estoril, a track that I like a lot."





Francesco Guidotti – Team Manager Pramac Racing




"We knew that on this track we probably could have had some problems and the weather didn’t help us. 
However, Hèctor was able to fight with riders who have had a great background in the races and this give us a lot of confidence for the next rounds."
