"Today was difficult situation, it was difficult to decide whether to get out on the bike dry or wet tires. Compared to last year I found myself much better in spite of these climatic conditions. Too bad that it took me a while before finding a good pace. I think I could have finished the race in a better position. When I picked up the pace it was about the same as Dovizioso, but I'm glad for this sixth position which is definitely a good result. I thank the team and Ducati for support. "

Yonny Hernandez (EnergyT.I. Pramac Racing)

"It was a very difficult race, the track conditions were changing constantly. I'm not very happy because I had to change bike twice. At the beginning of the race I decided to start with the slick thinking it was the right choice, then it began to rain again very hard and I thought it would have been impossible to keep going on, so I changed bike. After a while the sun came out again and I had to change bike again, losing a lot of time. I am not satisfied with the result because my goal was not achieved. However it was a good opportunity to learn new things and now I look forward now to the next race at Sachsenring. "
