"Frustrating was my wrong choice in the tire selection, I focused too much on what the majority did, instead of looking at myself, which would work best for me," Smith says after the race. Like his team-mate, he chose the hard tire mixture. "In the first eight laps I was able to go full, after that, I lost the self-confidence to reduce the front tire to the temperature." In the finish 48 seconds were missing on winner Andrea Dovizioso, 18 seconds on the team colleague. "I am satisfied with the first part, and now I am looking forward to Misano, where I had a good test a week ago."
