Hernandez: “Fighting with the leading group felt great”

Hernandez: “Fighting with the leading group felt great”

Pramac Racing’s Yonny Hernandez achieved his first ever top ten finish at the Commercial Bank Grand Prix of Qatar.

The Colombian started the race from 5th, after an incredible qualifying session, battling it out with the leaders for the first 5 laps, before finishing in an impressive 10th place on the GP14.2.

Yonny Hernandez:
"I am very happy with what we have done this week. I want to thank Giacomo Guidotti and the whole team: this success is all ours. And we are on the right path to continue on the challenge to get to the Top 10.  Managing to stay and fight in the leading group for the first laps felt great besides being an incentive to continue to work hard. The level of the MotoGP is very high but we keep up with it. My team allowed me to be in the right conditions to fight for the first positions. Physically I feel better, the injury to the shoulder has become only a memory. And I am sure we can do much better."
