“It was a really good end to the test, especially as we have been really unlucky with the weather this year at the UK tests. We really needed today to get some dry testing time with the bike.

“I had a strange crash this morning where I folded the front on the gas, but luckily enough we could get out in the last session.

“I felt pretty comfortable at the end and I feel that the lap time was quite strong for the conditions. We have a really good direction now for the race weekend and we are in a good place to get that started.”
