“Super Sic” had the podium as his goal today from pole position but a solid sixth place in Barcelona proved a positive end to a tough weekend. A poor start and tricky conditions certainly didn't help the Italian to set the lap times he had been reeling off in practice, which would have brought him back in touch with the leaders in the race. However, Marco remains satisfied with a result that sets him back on the right path following a controversial few days in Spain. Hiroshi Aoyama made a big mistake that also brought an end to the race of Randy De Puniet. It was a weekend to forget for the Japanese, who failed to score points for the first time this season.
