Following a fantastic Qualifying, Remy Gardner and Bo Bendsneyder didn’t get the chance today to convert their second and 18th starting position into a great race, as the British GP had to be cancelled today due to persistent rain and standing water on the new Silverstone circuit asphalt.

“It’s really a pity that the race was cancelled and I never got to line up on the front row. Anyway, I need to take the positives from the weekend. I have been in the parc fermé for the first time, so that was cool. It’s just such a big shame because I thought we could have done such a great result here in the wet as I think we were probably one of the fastest. So, what could have been, anyway, we need to keep our heads high and move on to Misano.”

“I’m really disappointed that the race was canceled but the priority is to ride safe and today it wasn’t safe. We had a good Qualifying yesterday, so with that feeling we move to Misano and work hard there again!”
“The Moto2 race was dictated by the MotoGP riders’ decision not to race, so once the MotoGP riders decided not to race it was obvious that Moto2 and Moto3 will be cancelled. I feel very, very sorry for Remy, who had a great weekend, Qualifying, Warm Up, all weekend long, he has been fast and I think it could have been an incredible weekend for him and as well as Bo. He did by far the best weekend of the year and I think it would have been good for him to show what he can do. It’s not going to happen, so we have to accept the decision, move on and try to do the same Qualifying with our two riders in Misano.”
