Our Stefan Bradl rode his CWM RCV Honda to the 7th place today in the Silverstone GP scoring further important points for the standing at six races to go. Stefan, who qualified ninth yesterday after two awful crashes, struggled early in the race accusing some lack of rear grip but steadily continued to catch the riders in front.
Stefan: “Overall it’s not a bad result for us. I took a good start from the third row but in the beginning of the race I made a big mistake and dropped to 13th place. After that I did my best to repair the situation trying to get closer to the guys in front of me. I could catch them but suddenly Smith had a technical issue and I got stuck behind him. Once again I had to regain my pace but in the last laps I passed Iannone and Bautista (who crashed at two laps to go) and managed to finish 7th. We missed some rear grip since the first part of the race so we will work on this point before Misano”.
