Petrucci: “A top 10 taken with the teeth”

Petrucci: “A top 10 taken with the teeth”

Danilo Petrucci reflects on his performance at the German GP, where he crossed the line in ninth after fighting his way through the field.

Petrucci, starting from 15th on the grid, worked his way through the field, passing a number of riders, before finally overtaking his teammate Yonny Hernandez to cross the line in ninth.

Danilo Petrucci: “A top 10 taken with the teeth. I knew that the result of the qualification was unearned because we were never able to take advantage of the soft tire. But I also knew that in the race we'd all be in the same condition. The feeling has been good from the start and I felt very effective in the braking zones. That's why I took many risks pushing hard. I want to dedicate this result to the team. They did a great job this morning in the warm up and the race strategy proved perfect. I am really pleased with the guys. There is a great feeling and this makes me very happy.”
