A Race to Forget for Nakagami in Australia

Facing the long-distance race on Saturday due to a huge storm forecasted for Sunday, Nakagami tried to push and adapt to a windy and cold situation on track. However, a lack of feeling with the front end prevented him from pushing harder and he finally crossed the line 19th.

It's been a long race; I lacked confidence to push. We've been comparing different packages, but we still need to decide while adjusting it. I believe tomorrow we can take a step forward for the Sprint to have more feeling with the bike's front end.
