#52 Danny KENT – 18th (1’39.663):
“Of course we’ve made the job hard again tomorrow from 18th. It was a tough day because of the weather. Some guys were on wets and we came in straight away for slicks. I got like five ro six laps in the dry. A rider got in my way on my fastest lap which could have boosted us up a bit. We need a good start.”
