Fourth Place “A Fantastic Feeling” For Bradl

1 Mins read

Stefan Bradl was ecstatic with fourth place in Sunday's Italian Grand Prix despite coming within three laps of a maiden MotoGP podium. The LCR Honda rider was pipped to third place by Andrea Dovizioso but still finished higher than he'd ever done before in the premier class, a result he dedicated to his team.

“It's a fantastic feeling for me and the whole Team. Doubtless a podium finish would have been simply perfect but I am extremely happy about this great result on this track. I think that our asset was perfect since the beginning of the race because in the last couple of races we struggled a bit too much with full fuel tank and could not feel the front tyre properly but here we made a different set up. It worked perfectly on this special layout but at the end of the race I missed a bit of front end feeling on braking. So I preferred to stay calm and Dovi passed me but after that I was trying to follow him and it was pretty easy for me. Then Hayden put in a brave move on me but he had not the best exit on the right corner and I could pass him again. Probably my manoeuvre looked a bit aggressive on TV but I think it was normal for a last lap.”

“Being so close to the podium is fantastic and I feel happy for the team: they support me in the best way every weekend and especially Lucio. He is a hard worker and with this great result I want to give him something back”.
