At Montmelo races are never easy and even the last appointment was no exception.
The weather was, all in all, mild, but the race was still difficult.
The results, however, were not lacking. Our congratulations go to Alex Rins, who has returned to the podium after a difficult period due to his injury ... but also to Danilo Petrucci, who is growing on his Ducati.
Aron Canet is also very good in Moto2, and even better for Alonso Lopez, who has returned to the top in Moto3.
The MotoGP season continues its traverl across Europe in search of warm temperatures but there's a concrete risk of rain and wind for the next Race in Le Mans, France.
What are you betting on? Just wait for October 11th!
ALEX RINS 3rd
"I’ve been struggling a lot in the last weeks, and to take a podium here today at my home race feels fantastic. Since my shoulder injury in Jerez things haven’t been easy, and I have found it hard to be physically strong enough to compete at the very front. But I’ve worked hard off the bike and the team have worked super hard and have supported me a lot, so I want to thank them. I also want to thank the fans for their support and for standing by me in this tricky season. I’m so happy."
DANILO PETRUCCI 8th
"I'm delighted with my performance today and, in general, with how this weekend went. Today I felt comfortable in the race, and I was able to manage the tyres well. Unfortunately, I was struggling a lot in the straights, where I got passed by most of the riders that overtook me. Maybe, if we had qualified better, we could have aimed for an even better result, but I think it was a good race overall and that after last weekend in Misano, we are gradually returning to our levels."
ARON CANET 8th
"I am happy with the start of the race, but from the eighth lap I have had problems with my forearm and it was very difficult for me to accelerate and brake. I finished the race as best as I could, although it crossed my mind to enter the garage because it was being very difficult. However, I have not given up."
ALONSO LOPEZ 5th
“I’m very happy about today, because we’re working well and improving, and this is important as we attempt the second part of the season. I am very confident with the bike and we can still make a few steps. I want to dedicate this race to the team, for all their effort and for all the sponsors who have supported me so far.”
