The Italian, who is still suffering with the shoulder he injured at Portimao last year, failed to start the opening leg yesterday after a transmission failure on the warm-up lap and then suffered a sensor problem in the second outing.
“It was an awful weekend and today, it was an unlucky day. In race one I did not even start, while in race two it seemed that a sensor failed so the bike could not work with the right electronic strategies. I had to slow down for a couple of laps to understand what was going on and what the problem was," said Melandri.
"Once I understood how to manage the situation I returned to my race pace and completed the race. Now we need to understand what does not work and to solve the problem. My aim is to rediscover the riding pleasure, to fight for the podium and to win again.”
