Wilco Zeelenberg - Yamaha Factory Racing Team Manager
"Conditions today were very difficult, Jorge had not much grip in the rear for the first three laps. After five or six laps it improved a little bit so he got up close to Dovizioso to try and make an overtake. Unfortunately he lost the rear and went over the handlebars, ending his race. It's not the best result, my first DNF with the team and Jorge's first for 25 races. We were leading the Championship, we're now 18 points behind but everything is still open. There are 12 races still to go so let's go to Assen and see what we can do."
