“I threw it away. I made one of my biggest mistakes ever on the track. It was a real shame because I was going well. I first went off the track trying to get past a back marker; maybe the driver didn’t see me and I ended up going off. I still kept my chin up and got back in touch with the leaders. I realised that Tamburello was where I could attack but it didn’t go very well. I strayed onto the grass trying to avoid Sbirrazzuoli and lost all my grip. I spun and ended up in the sand. Tomorrow my team-mate will try to make up for things and pick up some points. Ragazzi is on pole and will be doing everything to stay out of trouble up front”.
