Romain Febvre: “I had a good start in first place, and then coming into the first corner I slowed down and Coldenhoff moved around me. I am satisfied about my riding, I feel good and it wasn’t so hot today. I was second and then Gajser passed me after I made a mistake and I got him back when he made a mistake. I felt I could push today, and I made it happen. First pick of gate tomorrow, so I am happy. The track has been slightly changed, I like it, the layout is nice”
