We have to appreciate what he has done and thank him for all his efforts during this time, what he has done in Germany has been truly amazing. ", said Puig.

“We understand that life can sometimes be difficult and right now we have some problems. We are working to overcome them in the best possible way, trying to fix them. We understand that we have some weak points, we have recognized them. We also know that Marc is not one hundred percent, but Sunday was an important day because we were able to achieve a victory. Despite this, we do not believe that our problems are solved. We will work to give all our riders, not just Marc, the best bike possible "continued.

I think we have to solve our problems and Marc still has to keep recovering. We will have ups and downs this season. The result at Sachsenring was very important, but that does not mean that we have fixed everything now. To think this would be a mistake, we must think about what we can improve little by little and now face the race at Assen ”, He said ahead of the test this weekend in the Netherlands.
