Tito Rabat disappointed with 16th at the Sachsenring
Tito Rabat’s hopes of a third straight top 15 finish looked well on course at the Sachsenring today after he’d perfectly timed his decision to switch to his second Honda RC213V machine as track conditions improved.
A top 10 finish looked within his grasp but a fall in the tricky conditions at the final corner forced him to remount and finish in 16th position.
Tito Rabat: 16th
“I am very disappointed with the outcome of today’s race. It was very difficult in the full wet conditions but I think I came in and changed bikes at the right time when the track was drying very quickly. I was pushing to try and fight inside the top 10 because today was a good opportunity to do that but unfortunately I crashed at the final corner. The fortunate thing is I escaped injury and now I can look forward to training hard in the summer and coming back strong at the Red Bull Ring in Austria.”
