"It's difficult to make complete sense of a day like today, but thankfully it doesn't happen very often. If the track was soaking wet and it was raining, the wet tyres wouldn't have lasted long enough - maybe just five or six laps. The cancellation of race one and the stoppage of race two were the correct choices, though obviously the crowds weren't very happy. Hopkins made a fantastic start in the first race, but was forced to take avoiding action when Melandri got all crossed up just in front of him. He dropped to 10th but got back in the groove before crashing out. Leon rode really grittily in both races I'm happy he kept both wheels on the ground and managed to finish. We've lost valuable track time this weekend and that's frustrating, especially as we've definitely improved our set-up in conditions like these."
