Montmeló, 15 June: threating clouds distressed the MotoGP riders and Teams ahead the start of the 25-lap race at Montmeló circuit but the seventh GP of the season was conducted in dry conditions with local hero Marc Marquez achieving his seventh consecutive victory. LCR Honda racer Stefan Bradl, who arrived here still battered and bruised from two huge race-day crashes at Mugello, has been fast and consistent thought the whole weekend and today he finally enjoyed a top five finish. The German, who is currently holding the 8th place in the world standing, will be back on track tomorrow for a testing before moving to Assen in two weeks time. Stefan: “We are quite happy because I am the best satellite rider just behind the factory Teams. First of all I want to thank my Team because, after the difficult weekend in Mugello, we did a great week end making a good job with the bike setting and the tyre choice. Today I was the only rider of the filed on hard front tyre and I felt comfortable with that. But it’s tough for me to keep the pace of the top riders because it seems that they always have something more. The fifth place is the maximum we could do and it’s a positive result but, as a MotoGP rider, you always race for a podium finish and today I wanted to go for that but as I said it’s very difficult to beat the factory riders”.
