#GermanGP: Conclusion of the Sachsenring weekend not as hoped

Coming home in P20, Dominique Aegerter finished the last race before the summer break below his expectations.

Dominique Aegerter struggled in vain at the Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland to repeat a performance similar to that of one week ago at Assen. However, the changeable weather on race day did not play into his cards. After the warm-up in the morning, which took place on a half-wet, half-dry track, the 28-year-old Swiss could not recover his otherwise good feeling for his bike during the race.

#77 Dominique AEGERTER (MV Agusta Idealavoro Forward, MV Agusta F2), P20:

"I'm sorry, because we went into this race with higher expectations. Especially after we’re able to perform strongly one week ago at Assen. But today, something went wrong. I don't want to blame it on the bike, as foremost I think it was the changed weather conditions compared to the last days. This morning the track started to dry during warm-up but till the race it was completely dry. Despite the sunshine, however, the track conditions were not optimal. I could never find the same feeling I had during practice sessions. Therefore, I would like to apologise to my team and all sponsors for this result. We have to take advantage from the summer break to develop our bike forward as well as I myself will train hard on and off the track, plus I’ll participate in the Suzuka eight-hour race again this year. In between I allow myself a few days off. But after the long summer break I will return all the more motivated. But we have to continue working hard to achieve the goals we set ourselves."
