"I made a serious mistake at the start, rookie failure. When I put the first gear I noticed something strange, but now only pending traffic light and make a good start, so I've thought of confirming that the march had entered. When the lights are off I saw that had the neutral position and the first thing I thought is that nobody hit me from behind, not to lose the race, but because both the other driver and I could have done much damage.
In that respect I have been very lucky, but at the first corner was very late and I had to give one hundred percent in the first two rounds. Seeing that he was with the lead group, my goal was to score as many points as possible, but I was surprised myself to see that going up the ranks and reached those who were leading the race. From there, I took it more calmly when overtaking.
From Ecuador to the test until the end we have set a very good pace, better than in the qualifying session. That is very positive because Motegi is a circuit in which the Kalex going well here and get 25 points is very important. "
Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"Once again, Marc has proven to rise to the occasion. A pilot impressive size. An output complicated, yet very dangerous, you put the race very difficult since left him in a position where they had only one option: the comeback. So he set to work, and despite having a very difficult challenge ahead, has managed to reverse the situation in the best way possible. We run out of words to describe these feats. Very happy and that allows us to face the Malaysian Grand Prix with even more energy. "
