After finishing in the top ten at the last six races, Brad Binder in Silverstone couldn’t get better than fifteenth. Jules Danilo, who started from thirtieth on grid, fought to a twenty-fifth final position, after having had a chance to look for a position inside the top twenty.
Brad Binder (38’17”656 – 15th ) “We had a problem, and in the back straight I could not defend my position. I could pass riders elsewhere, but losing in that straight. We could not do anything better, today”.
Jules Danilo (38’44”052 – 25th ) “After a difficult qualifying I had some doubt about what could be our real chances. They were good, I can say now, but had a problem. Plus at a point, while fighting for seventeenth, I had quite a moment… we did a great progress, to be honest, in the race, in comparison with qualifying, and it’s a pity that it will not show on the paper. Hopefully I can catch points in Misano”.
Josè Manuel Ruiz Gomez (Technical Director) “A difficult race. The group was really a big one, especially for the first three-quarter of the laps, and the fight was very tough. Jules starting from a position in the back of the grid improved quite a lot his lap time and his pace has been well above his rhythm during the first two days of the weekend. His race has been positive, anyway: he’s always able to perform better in race than in qualifying”.
