Takaaki Nakagami Takes 8th Position in Assen

From the 14th spot of the grid, handling the situation, and being clever and cold, Nakagami has grabbed some points in Assen. The eighth position of the Japanese is the best Honda result of today's race, and the rider and the crew are pleased after the job of the weekend.

LCR Honda CASTROL replacement rider Stefan Bradl has finished 13th at the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, scoring valuable points for the team.

The German rider has carried out a clever race in which he's pushed and fought against rivals, hasn't made mistakes, and has handled the situation. He's been a great help throughout the weekend as he's the official HRC test rider, and without any doubt, all the information will be significant to improve the bike ahead of the races after the summer break.

Overall, there are many areas of the bike that we need to improve. I couldn't push how I wanted, but I found a compromise that allowed me to keep my rhythm while not making mistakes. I believe that after the summer break, we'll try new items that will help us improve in the upcoming races.

It's been a tough race, but I'm pleased to have scored points; that was unexpected. LCR deserves them, and I'm pleased to have contributed. I tried my best during the race, despite it being not easy. I want to thank the team for their job and effort this weekend.
