It has been a good weekend, even if this time Jorge has been untouchable in the race! Marc and Dani built up a great show, with a great battle for second position. We need to work hard to start winning again!
With 5 races to go, it is still too early to think about the Championship. Marc, Dani and Jorge at the moment seem to be in another league, and it means they can finish on the rostrum each given Sunday, therefore I think it will be a great battle between them until the end. This is good for the fans, less for our blood pressure!
I think already here in Misano Marc showed to be able to manage the situation. In the practice he had the best pace, and he did an unbelievable pole position, but during the race, with Jorge faster than expected, he did a great job finishing second without trying too hard to win.
I believe Dani also has a good chance to fight until the end! This season has been influenced by the injury in Sachsenring, but now he is fit again and ready to show all his speed and experience in circuits that he loves.
This is racing! We love the never-ending development process of racing and we need strong competitors to prove our capability!
Marc and Dani tested the 2014 prototype and also a new swingarm for their actual RCV. Our engineers are happy with the feedback they got from the new component and we hope to have found something good for the final part of this season and also for 2014!
