The point in common between the top three in the Japanese Grand Prix is the return to the podium after a more or less long personal wait. A period of ‘fasting’ from the top-3 which also applied to Jorge Martin, 3rd in Motegi and for the third time among the best after the second place in Argentina and Catalonia. A decidedly positive result for the 24-year-old from Madrid, although there are still some regrets for the latter. Above all, that of having made a mistake in choosing the rear tire, such as to have compressed every chance of victory: “I’m happy with today’s race – commented after the finish line a Sky Sport MotoGP – it was long and also difficult, and besides, a lot has passed since the last podium. We made a mistake on the rear tire, otherwise I would have surely been able to fight for the win. The tire was difficult to decide: we only raced in dry conditions in PL1 and in Warm-UP. If I had tried hard this morning, I would have used that, but I tried medium and went fast. I thought he would hold on more, but with 14 laps to go he was starting to skate a lot, I didn’t have any grip. I was off very late, but it was still difficult to have good times. I tried to keep Brad at a distance, but in the end I would have had to risk too much to keep 2nd position. This is what could be done today. I’m more relaxed this weekend. Outside of Europe we have less to do, I can be more with the team and this creates a positive environment, as well as going fast. We are back on the Barcelona bike and we are going strong. With the right tire I could have fought to win, but I’m happy anyway. We are working well and are making progress ”.
