“I realised that things were getting difficult because it was very easy to do a mistake and crash, a lot of riders went down; my bike though was great and thanks to my team I was able to ride smoothly and clean. Excellent job!”
A momentous day for Rovelli too, the team owner also made reference to Davies's subsequent move to a factory-assisted team, saying he 'deserves' his breakthrough.
“We have achieved a dream, taking a bike of a private team to win a WSBK race. The team has done a great job and this is the only way to achieve these kind of goals. As usual Chaz has been great and he deserves everything is happening to him now and in the future.”
The highest-scoring rider at the Nurburgring, Davies's haul of 41 points lifts him from 11th to eighth in the overall standings.
