Laverty: “I finished ten seconds behind where I should be”

Laverty: “I finished ten seconds behind where I should be”

Eugene Laverty is being realistic after finishing in fifteenth at the #ItalianGP, as he admits there is still room for improvement.

Aspar MotoGP Team’s Laverty crossed the line in fifteenth at Mugello, to finish in the points for the second race in a row.

Eugene Laverty: "Both at Le Mans and here we experienced difficult weekends, however these are the only two races at which I have scored points. It's a strange feeling; on one hand I am unhappy with my feeling with the bike, but on the other we scored points. Being realistic, I finished ten seconds behind where I should be. In the first two parts of the race we were able to keep a steady pace, however, in the last third the bike became difficult to ride. We are working in the right way, but we must persevere to find a more balanced bike setup that allows me to ride an entire race smoothly. On chicanes and areas where I need the bike to flow, I have to put a lot of weight on the front in order to corner. My strength is braking but we have to sacrifice this in order to corner better. I hope to gradually gain experience and find a more balanced setup."
