Nicky's comments after the race:

I tried to recover, but something was wrong with the setup of the bike. I can't make the harder compound work well with my bike and I have to go with the softer one, but today even those didn't start to work well until I got a lot of heat into them. I did my best time on the 17th lap, so there is something we have definitely to work on with the team. We need to look at the data and think up something different for the next one."
He's riding hurt, so that definitely doesn't help things. I hope to see him step it up as the season progresses.

I think finishing in the top 10 would be a worthy endeavor.
