Solid sprint for Lecuona in Barcelona

Fully committed to helping the team, Lecuona has carried out a solid Sprint at the Catalan track. Not only did he make a good start, but he fought with rivals and crossed the line as the second-best Honda of the grid. Counting on all the data and information after the Sprint, the rider and the crew are determined to take another step tomorrow. 

LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider Takaaki Nakagami has finished 20th on Saturday’s Sprint in Barcelona. Struggling with the rear grip but trying to squeeze the potential of his package, Nakagami had made a strong start. The Japanese tried to fight with rivals and push, but that lack of feeling and the track conditions affected the Sprint plans, and he finally crossed the line 20th.

I’m pleased with today’s job. I’ve given my maximum at the Sprint and managed to do better than in the last two races. Ultimately, my main target is to help the team and push as much as possible, and today, I’ve enjoyed the ride. Let’s see if we can take another step for tomorrow’s race!

Everybody knows we are suffering. The main problem is the lack of grip, and despite we are trying our best to reverse the situation, it’s not easy. I’ve experienced that during the Sprint, although I’ve managed to finish understanding and learning to see if we can take a step forward tomorrow.
