“No one has put pressure on meI have been making my way and here we have finished. I am where I am thanks to the peace of mind they give me, I do not have any doubt. So I can only say thank you to all my team and my partner, who has accompanied me in this Grand Prix”.
“I have seven zeros. But now I think we are at another point. Remy already told me after I crashed in Le Mans, no one can take away the thorn, but surely next time I won’t fall. And so it is being, I go with more eye, but we are confident, which is also important“Pedro commented to close his speech before the DAZN microphones.
Second was Arón Canet, who added his seventh podium of the season, although he still hasn’t won the victories for the first time. “Really tough race. The fight at the start was very intense and made me lose time compared to Augusto, who had a great race. In the end I was able to beat him, but I had to push hard to keep him at bay. We are at 37 points and we have to keep fighting, because the Asian tour is going to be long“, added Canet, who is confident of being able to get fully into the fight for the title.
And the podium was completed by the even more leader of the general, Augusto Fernández. “we have to be happy. We had to make the podium, of course. I wanted to win but Pedro was very strong. The last part of the race has been difficult to manage with Arón, the tires, especially the front ones, were quite bad and the risk was very high. I didn’t want to risk too much and we have tied a good podium thinking about the championship”, pointed out a very mentalized Augusto in this final stretch of the course.
