“In race two I had a pretty fast pace but, considering my position in the standings, I chose not to take too many risks, trying to reach Rea. Halfway through the race when I saw that Sykes had lost a bit ‘of land, I decided to be content with second position. In the first heat instead we had just missed the set-up, not taking time to change from ‘dry’ to ‘wet’ our attitude. It was like turning on the ice and I did everything to close sixth. I am satisfied, and the fact that what today is my first Superbike podium at Magny-Cours, for the fact that we go to Qatar with a lead of 16 points on Sykes. He has always been strong here in France, and so I expected to lose more points today; then it went well and now we focus on the last round. “
