Difficult race for Barberá in Le Mans

Difficult race for Barberá in Le Mans

With a good result in warm up, Barberá and his team arrived on the grid in a confident mood ahead the French race.

Barberá didn't get a great start and dropped from ninth to fourteenth place on the first lap, as he struggled to find confidence with his Ducati Desmosedici. At the end, Barberá was able to achieve 9th place, having passed Álvaro Bautista in the latter stages.

The Pramac Racing Team took home some important points in the world championship standings and is now focusing on the next race, scheduled in two weeks in Spain.

“It was a very difficult race and I couldn't ride as I like because of a setup that was too stiff. We made this change during the warm up and it worked very well, but the conditions on the track during the race were different, and the surface of the circuit was wetter than in the warm up. Towards the end I was able to outperform Karel and achieve the 9th place, but, honestly, I'm not very happy with today's result.”
