Remy enjoys solid and positive German GP to finish P20 at the Sachsenring

 In News

Remy Gardner wrapped up his German GP replacement-rider gig with extra experience gained, ending the Race in 20th place.

Remy started from P21 and gained a couple of places through the opening turns before settling into 20th place. He engaged in battle with Johann Zarco and Stefan Bradl. The Australian tried to defend his position, but ultimately had to give way. He then focused on riding steady lap times and not making any mistakes, which can come easily at the Sachsenring. Remy succeeded and completed the German GP in 20th place, 50.115s from the winner.

We made a setting change to improve my feeling with the bike. I felt a difference in Warm Up, and I thought we could have a pretty good Race. The pace until lap 10 was really good. I was fighting with Zarco and Bradl, trying hunt down Mir, and I was in front of Bradl for 8-9 laps, which was good. I didn’t know how to manage the tyre drop of the rear tyre over the last 10 laps, but that’s all down to experience. Still, if you compare my pace with the medium rear between yesterday’s Sprint and today’s Race, today’s pace is much better. Hopefully I gave some good feedback and a different point of view, and hopefully Yamaha can take some positives from that.
