A wet track always mixes things up and at Magny-Cours one of the riders who best expressed himself was Davide Giugliano. The Italian is still getting to grips with the Fireblade, but his experience allowed him to start sixth on the grid before finishing the race in eighth place, definitely a morale boost.
“It has been a positive race - begins Davide - We had good pace for the full 21 laps and we were able to improve all the way to the chequered flag. It was my first time riding the bike for more than a few laps in wet conditions so there were some things I needed to understand first before I could start pushing harder."
A result that boosts morale and one for which Davide does not hesitate to thank the team.
“The team did a great job in translating my comments and the data into appropriate changes to the bike set-up. Obviously there is still room for improvement, but for a first wet race I’d say it hasn’t been a bad one at all!"
