Marco Simoncelli managed to highside himself out of lead in the Spanish MotoGP this weekend, but the Italian rider can some comfort that the slippy conditions also claimed many other victims and produced one of the most unpredictable MotoGP races in years.
Simoncelli is obviously a ‘glass half full’ type person and managed to take the positives from his performance stating “A major result is around the corner”
Marco Simoncelli said:
“I am really disappointed! I knew after the first five laps that the tyres were struggling but I managed to hold my advantage over Lorenzo. Unfortunately I lost the front in turn one and the rear came round on me – I tried to get it back under control but I couldn’t manage it. It happens in racing and even though I am disappointed I am also happy to have shown again that I am a contender this year. The most frustrating thing about today was that I got no help at all from the marshals, unlike other riders today. The bike was okay and if I could have had some help I am sure I could have still had a good race. That is not good but as I said before I showed I can run with the best today and that’s the main thing we’ll take away with us. A major result is around the corner.”
