“It was a very good race. It was very hot, and Stefano was pushing very hard, so I really had to push from the first to the last corner. It was a difficult race, but I enjoyed it. I’m happy because we’re the only Ducati on the podium, so that means that we are doing a really good job with my team, and this is really important for me. I hope to continue this way.”
