Local hero Vazquez takes fifth in tricky conditions
Ajo Motorsport’s Efren Vazquez finished fifth in his home Grand Prix today after teammate Johann Zarco received a 20 second penalty for “illegal overtaking” of Nico Terol in the final corner and was demoted to 6th position, having been able to celebrate victory only for a few minutes.
Catalan Vazquez was unable to reach the top group. However he was quite pleased with his performance and the progress he and the team made during the last few weeks.
After five races Vazquez now has 57 points and is sixth in the championship standings.
Aki Ajo: “The co-operation has improved significantly and I can expect great performances from Vazquez from the next GPs. He started a bit carefully with the difficult weather conditions of Barcelona and it was hard to reach the top group after that.”
