Stefan Bradl bounced back from a tough couple of days to finish ninth in the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday. The German described Friday as the toughest day of his MotoGP career so far but kept up his 100% scoring record in the race, beating Hector Barbera and Nicky Hayden.

Speaking on Sunday evening, Bradl was slightly disappointed to lose eighth to Ben Spies but the LCR Honda rider was pleased overall given the challenges he faced in the build-up.

“Well… this has been a very hard weekend for us in general. We have struggled a lot with rear grip immediately on Friday morning but Saturday we have found some good adjustments. Unfortunately for the all race we had some issues going into the corners. My start was ok and I could make some good manoeuvres in the beginning but then I was a bit on the limit and in the middle of the race I was losing too much in the corners entries which was our problem all the time during this weekend. Especially in the fast corners I needed to wait in opening the throttle and this cost us a lot of time. We have never had this problem before and Spies had a better pace than us during the race but I can say this is another good weekend for me and the Team”.
