15 - Grande Prémio MEO de Portugal

22 Nov 2020

「最初に、休みなく続いたハードな日程の中で、いつも完ぺきなマシンを準備してくれたチームとHonda、そして、すべての関係者とスポンサーに感謝の言葉を送りたいです。そして、LCR Hondaで最後のレースになったカル(クラッチロー)には、改めて感謝の言葉を送ります。MotoGPクラスで戦うようになってからの3年間、自分にとってカルはいつも偉大な選手であり、すばらしいチームメートでした。これからも彼の成功を願っています。



“First of all, I want to thank my team as this season has been pretty tough with almost no rest, but my team prepare the bike and it’s always perfect and I appreciate every person in the team, so thanks to them. I would like to thank all my sponsors for their support. I want to thank Cal again, since it is his last race with LCR Honda Team. Cal has been a great team-mate in all my three years and I want to wish him the best for the future.

Today it was difficult to find a strategy during the race, it’s tough to build from P11, but I had a good start and was really strong from the beginning. It was a big fight during the race and at the end I made some good lap times and we got another P5, which I’m really happy with. Overall, with my performance this season compared to last season, we made a big step, so I want to thank my team again for their hard work this year. We’re already thinking about the next season. I think we can definitely make another step forward next year and hopefully we can fight for the championship, this is my target. See you next year!”
