I tried to do my career but when you go in a group is complicated. One goal we had was the failure to leave early the last corner to catch the pilot rebufos front. But still, we could not complete a race we had a good start. It is difficult to shoot well but it was a shame as we had pace to finish on the podium. "

First row for Álex Rins in Mugello

Mixed feelings for both drivers CatalunyaCaixa on the second day of testing at Mugello. Rins Alex has achieved the third fastest time in qualifying this morning and will take from the front row at the Italian Grand Prix. A classification spectacular in his debut at the Italian track, which confirms once again the great progression Rins in his first season in the World Cup. Miguel Oliveira, in turn, was 16th. The Portuguese start from the sixth row in the grid with the obligation of having to make a quick exit to avoid losing contact with the front group in which is his teammate.

In the afternoon, the first moment of the weekend, Rins has continued to increase his pace and lap after lap has been spraying their own records of yesterday to get 1'58 .821 (0841 Viñales), on his return, 14 the 17 who completed. Only five drivers have been able to shoot at 1'58 and Rins debut at Mugello, was one of them. A record that has earned spectacular to get the third fastest of the session. Thus, the Barcelona youngster will start tomorrow in the Italian Grand Prix from the front row for the second time this season after the pole achieved in the Grand Prix of Spain. In turn, Oliveira could not continue the progression that he would have liked to perform and has failed to find their good feelings with the mount.

Miguel Oliveira, CatalunyaCaixa pilot, ranked 16 th, 35 laps, time: 1'59 .966:
"Our goal was to improve times yesterday but unfortunately not the case. Obviously I'm not at all satisfied with the result as expected much more from today's session. I said yesterday that it was very important to a good training to get ahead. Here in Mugello is very important, but ultimately, we lacked rhythm and consistent lap. We must look with my technicians what has happened and for my part, look where I failed. In the race must attack in the early stages without losing contact with the group since the first half of the race we recover what we have done today. "
Alex Rins CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 3rd place, 33 laps, time: 1'58 .821:
"First of all I want to thank the team during the night were working yesterday to today we have a competitive bike. In training I have done my qualifying second best result of the season which I'm really pleased. Looking morning we make a good start and hooked the group as soon as the race will be in groups. Anyway we do our race calmly but forcefully. We have fast enough to be there before so we can face tomorrow's race in a positive way for us. Race is much easier to make the time as you help to others but it is also true that can harm us that we exchange overtaking us. "

Rain disrupts the plans of the pilots CatalunyaCaixa

Adverse weather conditions have returned to detract from the performance of the drivers CatalunyaCaixa, Miguel Oliveira and Alex Rins, who finished 19 th and 20 th respectively in the German Grand Prix.

Miguel Oliveira, CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 19th ranked in the German Grand Prix, the first .878 +1'18 placed 12 th overall with 39 points:
"It was a very difficult race. Furthermore, since yesterday and it cost us to go wet comfortable on this track and now things have changed for us. It was a shame because in the morning, in the 'warm up', I felt very comfortable with the bike and everything seemed to be running dry. But in the end, the conditions are those that had, and we have had to run again with the rain. We left very late in the grid, so I dry strategy was clear: do well and overcome. We had pace to be among the top three but with the rain, everything has changed. The focus has gone from being totally offensive to an objective conservative as the most important thing was to stay on the bike. "
Alex Rins CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 20th ranked in the German Grand Prix, the first .957 +1'18 placed 8 th overall with 54 points:
"We made a good start but later we lacked confidence to keep fighting with the group that was. I had a good feeling at the entrance of the curve as rain first, and the lack of 'grip', then I have not been allowed to shoot as I would have liked. When dry asphalt we moved around a lot the bike and could not finish the race the way we would have liked. We must look forward and focus on the next race since today was a race to forget. "
Emilio Alzamora, Team Manager:
"It was a very difficult race for everyone. Especially for Michael and Alex, who throughout the weekend have shown good pace in the dry. Together the team have developed a great job and the times achieved during the training weekend and have shown, but to those conditions that had to face today is very difficult to leave Sachsenring with a good taste. A real shame as they both had good pace. They are both young riders and learn from those experiences and I'm sure the hidden potential will have learned the lesson well. Next week, more "

Then we were shooting at a fast pace but there was a time when I've been thrown off the track and from there I lost all options to be there before. I lost contact with the front group but I fought all I could. I must thank the team and all my sponsors. Rate had to be there before so I'll stick with this. The right hand has held up well but the left hurts a lot and the fact that we have the two consecutive races will not help us much. The next week ".

Our goal was to get a good start and win positions in the first round and has been completely the opposite of what we expected, ie, we have lost some position without being able to start the race with very good start. It has generally been a difficult weekend in terms of configuration, we have failed to find a compromise between the fast and the slow part of the circuit with the bike and that has hurt us. Yesterday we lost the opportunity to make a quick turn would have allowed us to start from more advanced positions today. Anyway, we went out with determination and contact with the front group, the middle of the race, I lost my rear tire and did not want to risk more of the account, and I understood that a tenth place in these conditions was not a bad outcome. I hope the next race we can be there before. "

"It was a difficult weekend, especially with the weather conditions we had to perform two practice sessions. Michael and Alex have done a good job over the two days without being able to shoot at all comfortable in a circuit to find a good set-up is not easy. The race was a shame that Alex fell off the top of it and that is making a great start to the season. Miguel, who had started from the back, has done a good progression to contact the front group. However, it was then that your tire has had enough and had to settle for tenth place not to risk end. Rins Alex has a crack in the index finger of his right hand and some minor bruising which will not hold that to be fully fit again for the next race "

"In the morning things went well. In the afternoon we continued the work, although towards the end of the session was difficult, as there were many pilots looking wheel. We have entered to try to exploit a new tire, but I saw that it was difficult to shoot only on the wind and in the end it was just as I have done my best time. Anyway, I think we have pace to be just ahead. The Silverstone track is very long, so we get a good start and make a first round with the front group. That will be a key factor to consider for tomorrow. We've been working a lot with the setup, because after two dry sessions we have had time to test different configurations. "
Alex Rins CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 10th place, time: 2'17 .908, 29 laps:
"The truth which has not too bad. In the first round we have improved the time to first open the morning and then I set my fastest time on the first outing with soft tires. In the second round were too many people looking wheel. We need a bit of pace to be ahead, but is a circuit in which we have adapted quickly and I think we have a good race. If it rains will be a little tricky because, although the asphalt remains fairly grip, we have improved the pace in the wet. If the race is dry, I think we can be with the second group "
