Having fought for the win on the last two occasions, Danilo comes to Holland as the top Ducati in the championship with a point to make. Anyone who was there to witness last year’s race knows he’ll be the one to watch on the Dutch track. Álvaro comes to Assen as a former 250cc GP winner, and is eager to end a two-time DNF cycle at the track and transform it into a solid result on Sunday.

#9 Danilo Petrucci
BARCELONA Result: P8

“It has been a difficult race for me in Barcelona. I started well, fighting for the top five until halfway through the race. But then I had some problems with my front tire so I unfortunately lost a few positions. Then I tried to recover some positions but was too late. Anyway, we are fifth in the championship and that’s good, because in this weekend there’s Assen, one of my favorite circuits where in the last two years I always fought for the victory.”

#19 Álvaro Bautista
BARCELONA Result: p9

"It was a great comeback, moving up thirteen positions. We knew it was going to be a battle for survival, and that proved to be the case. We started calmly, in order not to heat up the tires too much. Last year, I had trouble finishing the race, but this year with the soft tire, they weren't too worn down at the chequered flag. I had a good pace; except for when passing other riders. I was in the 1:40s. It's a shame to have started so far back, because if I were to have qualified better on Saturday I could have been with the front group. It is something that we have to improve. I hope to be able to qualify better for the next race. I'm happy with how I felt during the race."

#4 Steven Odendaal
BARCELONA Result: P18

“Starting from P25 is never easy. I had a fantastic start to the race pushing myself up to P17 where, unfortunately, half way through the race my tires suffered too much with the extreme heat... finishing P18 was the best I could have achieved In Catalunya. We had a 2-day test in Aragon after the race with updated parts, with a positive outcome that will help improve our performance. I am looking forward to Assen, it’s the team’s home race and that always brings a special feeling and extra motivation.”

#16 Joe Roberts
BARCELONA Result: P22

“Barcelona is definitely a race I want to forget. We just didn’t find any good feelings there and I just wasn’t happy at all with the bike that weekend. We have made some big changes for Assen and it’s the Home GP for the whole team so I’m looking to have a better weekend here and give the team a good result.”

For our Moto3 youngsters, Assen will require digging up some memories. Jaume’s last visit was in 2014 with the Red Bull Rookies, the same class in which Makar gained experience of the Dutch track. For him, 2016 was his last visit, when he unfortunately saw a promising 4th place on the grid end in a double DNF during both races. Both of them will take a fresh approach towards the Dutch TT, looking to put in a solid result.

BARCELONA Result: DNF

“Amazing Sunday, I was riding very fast feeling so much more comfortable, but I made a little mistake. I feel so sorry for Migno and my team. It is a pity ending the weekend like this. Thanks to all the crowd for supporting. After some bad results, I am only focusing on training hard and arriving to Assen ready to face the GP with the objective to finish the race. It is important for me and the team. I know I like the track but more than that, I want to cross the finish line.”

#76 MAKAR YURCHENKO
Barcelona Result: P12

“The race started tough for me, as we were struggling a lot with the bike. We had some technical issues, also, I was working on my riding style. We made a good step forward on Sunday, also the tire choice was correct. In the race, I could keep a fast pace and battle in the group. Finally, very happy with my best result so far - 12th position!! I’m Looking forward to continue improving on the next round in Netherlands! Assen is one of my favorite tracks in the calendar, so for sure I’ll push hard and enjoy it.”
