TITO RABAT 1 "It was a very complicated race in which it was very hot . At first I started out well , I tried to push from the start but there's been an accident then we had to start over. I tried to pull out the second well , I pushed hard throughout the race . I put water in the monkey and in the end I just got very conditions that were in the race. I am very happy with the result , I want to thank my team work they have done and already thinking of Australia where I hope to do my best . " POL 2nd ESPARGARÓ "We started badly the weekend . I had a good feeling on Friday . Yesterday we found something on the bike that has served us very well and hopefully help us in the following circuits . We were very fast yesterday at the chrono and this has helped me , given me some air and has given me some peace . I have not done well at the beginning of the carrear with the new tire and with a full tank . The stop of the race perhaps has helped me. I tried to push hard to catch Tito but I found it impossible. Tito has been very quick all weekend. I'm happy because now difference is 9 points and arrived at Phillip Island is a track that I love. " AXEL PONS - Fall " I made â€‹â€‹a good start , I won a couple of posts in the first few corners and I was fine . Eager to make a good race but then I noticed a strong blow to the back and have flown away . I took a rocket hit and luckily I have not done anything serious . It's a shame because I think today could have a good race . Useless to complain , so I can not but think that next week I have a chance to get me out the spine of this great prize. " CAREER 1.
