It was a race in which it was important to be at the front and try to set our pace, because we have been working on it all weekend. We knew it was good, although in the middle of the race we had some problems because it was difficult for us to turn. The rest of the riders also pushed a lot, but we are very happy with the result. After Austria and Catalonia and coming close to victory there, we were able to put that right. Now it’s time to continue working; we’re going to a new circuit so in India we will have to adapt from Friday.
