"It's been a really tough race from the beginning, the pace was very very high from the first lap to the final one. Casey [did a good race, unbelievably strong. I had a big shake in the first braking area, Casey and Jorge overtook me and I lost 1.5 seconds on the first lap. During the race I had some issues in the middle of the corner, I was not fast with corner speed; each lap I tried to get a little better, to try and modify my riding style, the mapping, braking later, I tried everything, I managed to match the lap times but not to close the gap. Three races on the podium is very good overall, but in three races we missed something, so let's try it again in the next one. To reach my 100th podium is amazing and shows how fast the time goes. I'm very happy for that and I want to thank all my teams and sponsors during this time and especially Honda because I've been with them for my whole career".
