The eighth race of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship was held today, at the German circuit of Sachsenring.
Pasini, who started from the fourteenth spot on the grid, didn’t have the opportunity to repeat the great result he achieved last weekend in Assen. The Italian was together with the other CRT machines, when on the fifth lap he was pushed outside the track by another rider, which made him crash and consequently retire.
Mattia now leaves behind him a difficult weekend, looking forwards to the race in Mugello, which is held next week, hoping for a good chance to make up for today’s result.
With twelve ponts, Pasini currently holds the fifteenth position in the General Classification.

“It’s a shame how this weekend ended. Things were going better, for the race we had managed to find a solution that helped us in being more competitive on top of the ART machine. We knew we had a consistent rhythm and that we had the chance to fight among the other CRT bikes, I was just waiting for the second part of the race to try and move up a few positions. On the fifth lap another rider made me crash and the race ended that way. Now we leave behind this GP to look towards Mugello, our home race, and we’ll see if we can make up there
