Di Meglio: “I was not able to brake…”

Di Meglio: “I was not able to brake…”

Mike Di Meglio, in his first race on the Ducati GP14.1 Open, had some issues with the set up of the bike and he finished the race in 19th.

The Frenchman gained valuable experience for his Avintia Racing team during the 22 laps of the Grand Prix of Qatar that will be useful in the next rounds. The action will resume in two weeks time, at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Mike Di Meglio:
“It was a difficult race for me. During the first half of the race, I had several problems, the same issues I had during the warm up session this morning. What I can’t understand is that the bike was exactly the same as yesterday and tonight we ran into these problems. I was not able to brake and the front was closing every time. Then, in the middle of the race, I started to feel a lot of vibrations and we don’t know why. We have to sit down and analyse every single thing to understand where those problems are coming from. We worked very hard and this is not the result we were expecting today.”
