Karel Abraham (Pull&Bear Aspar Team) made it through to Q2 at the San Marino GP, but race day saw the weather changed and the Czech rider crashed out at Turn 3 in the difficult conditions. He remounted and kept going in the hope of picking up a few points, but in the end crossed the line in 17th.
Now Abraham will be looking to get back on a roll at Aragon, and keep adding to his tally in his best season in the premier class so far.
Karel Abraham, P17: “This was the worst race of the season for me. We had a good qualifying session but we had been struggling a little over the weekend. Today was really very bad. I had a little crash in the morning, and in the race I had a crash at the same corner - Turn 3 - immediately. It was unfortunate because there were a lot of riders and we were overtaking each other. I feel like somebody pushed me a little on that corner, but with this low grip level it is very easy to crash. I felt like somebody kicked me from behind and I lost the bike immediately. I tried to pick it up, but then it was really difficult to ride alone because I didn't know where the limit was. It was really hard, and I basically just put in some laps to finish the race, thinking that maybe we would get some points if any riders crashed. It didn't happen, we finished seventeenth, and towards the end of the race I had a few moments where I lost the front or the rear -but it doesn't matter. We just have to forget this race and go to Aragon positively. I know we can get a good result, but today was definitely not our day."
