Toprak Razgatlioglu after Misano win: On Saturday I felt the bike was very bad


Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatlioglu is overjoyed after the win in Misano. Although he was not happy before the race, it turned out that his bike was great. "The first Superpole was incredible, also the pace [was in] 1m33s," he said for motorsport.

"For me this was a very good race and after the technical problem we have improved the bike, especially engine braking. "On Saturday I felt the bike was very bad because the set-up was not good, not like my style.

But on Sunday I felt much better on the bike "I need a long-race P1. We will see in Donington."

Ducati team

The Ducati team is dangerous this season, and they seem to be the fastest. It will be a tough race until the very end of the season.

"In ho* conditions the SCX were not working because after six-seven laps I felt too much spin," he explained. "But I kept fighting for the win. After corner 8 I lost the front tyre. After I said 'okay, second position is enough' because Alvaro is very fast in a straight, the Ducati is very fast.

"And also in some sectors I'm coming [close to him], but in some sectors he is a little bit fast, and after tyres started [showing a] big drop he was riding alone. He had problems at the start of the race. "In the first laps I was not really fast.

After I started fighting with Alvaro we saw good laps. "But before, my laptimes were not really fast because in hot conditions the grip is not like this morning. "And after some laps with the full lean angle I felt [the tyre was] spinning and I was not able to carry enough speed.

"Ducati was very fast in a straight. I came in with the braking and after I tried early to open the gas, but I was just eating tyre [life]. After laps I was not feeling good grip."
