Today even the result was okay, if I’m totally honest I feel a little bit disappointed, as we were very strong from the beginning and we could achieve better things. It's hard to manage finish so close to the podium, but I did my best and gave everything I had to achieve a better result.
We had a good start, and even after the race was interrupted, we maintained our strong performance.
Unfortunately, in the last laps, I couldn't catch up to the top riders and lost the gap with them. However, we are on the right way, let’s keep this good moment and fight for important things in Assen.

Today was a challenging race at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello. I was in the group fighting, and we were in a good position. However, a rider crashed in front of me, and as I tried to avoid him, I lost the gap with the riders ahead. From that moment, it was very difficult to catch up to the riders in front of me.
Additionally, when I was trying to close the gap, another rider blocked me, forcing me off my path and further stopping my progress. Despite my efforts, I couldn't reach the group again. I hope for a better result in the next race at Assen. We will work hard in the coming weeks to be fully prepared for the next challenge.
