Romano Fenati had admitted that his lack of experience caught up with him on Sunday when he crashed out of the French Grand Prix. The Italian lost ground in the championship with the fall on lap five and has promised to better in more familiar surroundings at Barcelona.

“I crashed out as I was climbing my way back. I’m sorry, it was a mistake due to lack of experience. I could have scored important points for the championship. Now we head to Barcelona, a track that I already know and enjoy. I’m sure I can do well there, especially if the weather helps us out.”

Teammate Alessandro Tonucci salvaged some points for Team Italia FMI in fourteenth, albeit two laps down on victor Louis Rossi, and he blamed an electrical problem on his FTR Honda for his struggles.

“Bad luck influenced my performance today. Without the electric problem, I could have finished among the top 7 riders. Still, having scored points makes me happy. I want to thank my team, which supported my constantly throughout this week-end and especially when I forced to go back to the pits. If the weather will be nice in Spain, I’ll be able to do better.”

Team Manager Alfredo Mastropasqua was philosophical at the end of a tough day but saved praise for another Italian who had the best race of his short career.

“It was a learning experience for Romano, who has yet to improve his approach in the wet. With a safer strategy, we could have scored some good results. I want to point out that Fenati’s words about the transmission right after the race turned out to be incorrect. After checking the bike and the telemetry, our technicians discovered that the chain fell due to the crash. Tonucci did great, not giving up and finishing a difficult race. I also want to congratulate (Niccolo) Antonelli for having such a good race.”
